Space Security and Safety (SSS)

The Space Security and Safety (SSS) program offered by Strauss Center provides students with transdisciplinary courses and opportunities for scholarship. The program sits at the junction of hard and soft sciences, as well as law, business, and policy studies, and is engaged with the most timely and relevant space-related issues.

The goals of the program are to develop and offer innovative and transdisciplinary courses; to provide guidance and support to participating students from across campus; to create a pipeline of Brumley fellows going forward; to produce high-impact scholarship (especially but not only as an element of the Brumley SSS program requirements); and to deepen ties amongst academia, industry, NGOs, and the public sector in this area.

We're excited this fall to launch a new course, Space Law: Practicing Law for the Final Frontier, co-taught by our distinguished fellows Idris Motiwala and Nathaniel Woodford. Motiwala and Woodford are attorneys for Firefly Aerospace, a Texas-based company focused on space launches.
