Join us online for a discussion of space-related activities that create environmental harm, whether they be terrestrial or extra-terrestrial. In this webinar Dr Jack Lampkin explores a variety of environmental issues that remain at the forefront of the (space) criminological imagination. Specifically, this includes research around space mining, orbital debris creation, air pollution from rocket launching, climate change contributions, anti-satellite missile testing, space junk and waste disposal, space warfare and the carbon costs associated with all space technologies. In light of these issues, this paper aims to do three things. Firstly, it will describe some of the key issues of concern to criminologists. Secondly, it will discuss the importance of criminologists engaging with space expansionism and, finally, it will argue why Space Criminology is a more appropriate lexical term for the criminological study of such issues, than the previously used term Astro-Green Criminology.
