Amanda Solloway – 2021 Comments on UN and UK Space Sustainability Agreement

The comments made by Amanda Solloway, the Science Minister, on 26 January 2021.

As the Earth’s orbit becomes congested with potentially hazardous debris, it’s critical that we work with our international partners to secure the continued safety and sustainability of space.

I am therefore delighted the UK is partnering with the UN to implement and promote these vital standards to all emerging and established space-faring nations, helping to ensure that outer space remains open for our next generation of astronauts.
