Author Affiliations +
NASA has adopted a policy to limit the generation of orbital debris, as stated in NASA Management Instruction 1700.8. To implement this policy, NASA sponsered the development of a handbook to assist in performing debris assessments, and this project has lead to the developemnt of a NASA safety standard, which is undergoing final review. This paper is a review of the guidelines and rationale sections taken from the standard.
