WHAT IS THE ASTRONAUT PERSPECTIVE?

Longitudinal Surveillance of Astronaut Health

At the XXX ASE Planetary Congress in 2017, the international Executive Committee and membership approved establishment of an international ASE committee on astronaut/cosmonaut longitudinal health to evaluate  future collaboration between the national space agencies with respect to sharing pre- and post-flight medical information which will contribute to the health of future exploration astronauts and cosmonauts. At the XXXI Congress in Belarus, the ASE unanimously approved a General Statement regarding the collection and analyses of human physiological data important to space exploration – to safely leaving Low Earth Orbit (LEO) or to extending LEO mission duration.

Space Traffic Management / Orbital Debris

In 2017, the ASE membership agreed that Space Traffic  Management and Orbital Debris are issues of concern needing to be addressed to ensure safe and coordinated operations in earth orbit and ASE formed a Committee on Space Traffic Management and Orbital Debris, chartered to participate in developing a path forward for international coordination to ensure safe spaceflight through space traffic management and orbital debris mitigation.  At the XXXI Congress in Belarus, the ASE unanimously approved a General Statement urging the international spacefaring nations to rapidly develop policies, technologies, protocols and/or treaties on Space Traffic Management (STM) in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) that would assess impact risk from space debris objects: Read the Statement:  English | Russian
