Space Generation Congress 2010 Reports Are Now Available Online: Fresh Perspectives from the Up-Coming Space Generation

24 December, 2010

The 2010 Space Generation Congress reports from the conference’s five project groups are now available online.  The reports bring a set of fresh, yet pragmatic recommendations from the next generation of space leaders on key topics in the themes of Industry, Agency, Climate, Exploration and Outreach.

All reports can be accessed here: http://www.spacegeneration.org/index.php/activities/papers-a-reports.

From 23-25 September 2010, the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) held its annual Space Generation Congress (SGC) in Prague, Czech Republic, gathering 101 young professionals and university students from 40 countries with current international space sector leaders and subject matter experts. The Congress was organised prior to the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) and aimed to engage the 18-35 year old attendees in debates on pertinent key space topics.

The three days of the SGC 2010 also enabled a resourceful and inspiring dialogue between the up-coming space sector leaders and the current leaders. Young professionals and university students learned from high-profile speakers, including Charles Bolden (NASA Administrator), Berndt Feuerbacher (International Astronautical Federation President [IAF]), Dumitru Prunariu (Chairman of UN COPUOS), and Jim Zimmerman (President of International Space Services, Inc. and former IAF President).  At the same time, these space sector leaders heard the innovative and bold insights from the incoming generation of space leaders.

Each of the five reports contains analysis and recommendations for issues in the themes of Industry, Agency, Climate, Exploration and Outreach.

  • The Industry Report analyzes the prospects of privatising the space sector as well as the obstacles that will be faced.
  • The Agency Report discusses global navigation satellite systems and their use during all phases of disaster management.
  • The Climate Report focuses on the current technical and political challenges of collecting, synthesizing, and exchanging Earth observation data – both from satellites as well as from community remote sensing.
  • The Exploration Report debates human space exploration as well as analyzes the feasibility of a manned mission to Mars.
  • The Outreach Report presents ways to better encourage students to enter and remain in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
