We are in a golden age of space related activities. Not only do we heavily rely on space borne technologies but we are living in one of the most exciting times for space engineering and exploration. With the Rosetta mission and the Curiosity mission deemed a great success, there is more interest than ever in space engineering and exploration. In this lecture we bring together three experts from different avenues in the space arena to discuss their views on what policy considerations are needed for the continual advancement of space activity in the next century.

Dr Franco Ongaro – Director of Technical and Quality Management (D/TEC), and Head of ESTEC at the European Space Agency (ESA) Dr Alice Bunn – Director of Policy, UK Space Agency Richard Peckham – UK Strategy and Business Development Director, Airbus Defence and Space Ltd
