Start Here For Space: These Mechanics Avoid Satellite Smashups

Originally aired on: February 1, 2022

Ms. Kerstyn Auman provides an overview of foundational principles of orbital mechanics. She will give insight into her role as an aerospace engineer working in orbit determination and on-orbit collision avoidance. Ms. Auman will also connect her work to space policy issues. As the tracking of commercial space satellites moves from the Pentagon to the Department of Commerce, the role of civilian orbital mechanics experts is expected to grow.
