On February 29th, 2024, the Rethinking Diplomacy Program's Space Diplomacy Lab (SDL) will welcome CNN Space and Defense Correspon-dent, Kristin Fisher, and independent space exploration writer and author, Jatan Mehta, to the third annual SDL media roundtable webinar.

The roundtable will feature a conversation around current and future trends in space policy, commercialization of space, the role of emerging space-faring nations, the moon rush/lunar exploration and the formation of competing diplomatic alliances in the space domain. The roundtable will be followed by a Q&A session with attendees.

Kristin earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism from Boston University and currently lives in Washington, D.C.
