    New Space: Opportunities in and to Brazil
    Brazil has tried in the last few years to improve participation in the international scenario and opening opportunities to commercial private companies. Following the signature of the Technical Safeguards Agreements (TSA) between Brazil and United States and the two public calls to use the Alcantara Launching Center, a new environment has formed in Brazil. Several initiatives have been launched to encourage the private sector. For this Special Issue we invite you to submit abstracts which address the highlighted policy gaps and the relevant areas to improve the space sector in Brazil by July 15, 2023.
