While outer space exploration represents infinite possibilities to the human imagination, certain behaviours can threaten the usability of space and its many resources. “Space sustainability” is ensuring that all humanity can continue to use outer space for peaceful purposes and socioeconomic benefit now and for generations to come. Achieving space sustainability will require building a common vision for space, shared by all countries and nations, and developing an accepted framework for behaviours and activities in space. The alternative will mean that, in the long run, no one will be able to benefit from space.
