Brachet on UN Space
Gérard said he was speaking "in a personal capacity" and his comments did not necessarily reflect the views of COPUOS.
Here is PDF version of the presentation: The future of space activities and the role of UN COPUOS. Or, if you prefer, (and enjoy hearing English spoken with a French accent,) here is the audio of his talk.
(I am playing the MP3 now; if time, will post a summary of the remarks. But text only. I presumaly do speak English as a first language, however being from NYC, my accent is not nearly as listenable as Gérard's.)
