The exploitation of space provides significant advantages to our economy. Space assets and the services they provide impact nearly every business sector, helping businesses become more efficient and productive. Space has clearly become ingrained into our economy. But, what would happen if these assets were compromised?

On July 28, the George Marshall Institute and the Space Enterprise Council ofTechAmerica co-hosted the third installment of their “A Day Without Space” series to discuss the economic security implications of losing access to space-borne assets and information and what steps might be taken to safeguard them.
