Earlier this month, I had the privilege of hosting the first Occupy Mars seminar at Wolfson College, Oxford. I was joined by several speakers from around the university and further afield to discuss what it will take to get humans to Mars one day.
It has been almost a month since the UK Space Conference, but I’ve only just found the time to reflect on this biennial event that cannot be missed by anyone in or interested in the UK space industry. Having attended the 2015 conference in Liverpool previously, this year’s one was equally unmissable.
It is somewhat delayed, but two weeks ago, I had the privilege of being invited as one of the 96 delegates to the 2nd European Space Generation Workshop held at the European Space Agency (ESA) HQ in Paris, France. In the paragraphs to follow, I shall highlight the work some amazing people in the industry contributed towards.
I was fortunate enough to have been able to attend the 54th session of the Scientific and Technical Subcommittee (STSC) of the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPUOS) at the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) as part of the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) delegation.
