Stijn Lemmens - "The next step for destructive re-entry experiments"
October 28th 2022
Stijn Lemmens has been working for ESA’s Space Debris Office since 2011. His work has a strong focus on the analyses related to space debris mitigation and space traffic coordination, and their implementation in mission design, licensing, and operational processes in an international context. One of the major scientific problems in this field comes from the limited understanding of the physics associated with destructive re-entries. As such he is actively involved in the definition and running of projects to bring design for demise and break-up modelling from the scientists to the stakeholders.
