The subtext in the original Washington Post article (registration required) says “Report urges steps to prevent collisions with satellites.” The ‘report’ being referenced is the not-for-public-release (and interim) Space Posture Review.
However the article, which is the Post’s variation of this Bloomberg article. never really says what steps are required other than “polices and laws to protect the public interest.”
I know this is a thorny issue, but please. Policies and laws? How about some thought regarding mitigating the mentioned 370,000 pieces of space junk in orbit between 490 and 620 miles. End of life satellite disposition? Design changes? The space broom? Hand wave?
Or perhaps an articulation of changes the policies and laws would create and how they would benefit space use. ”Policies and law” are what you say when you don’t know what to say.
