Partnering with SGAC's Space Safety and Sustainability (SSS) Working Group, this scholarship is open to SGAC members who are aged 18 to 35, and have applied to attend this year’s SGC by 23 July, 2012. The scholarship will cover provisions for travel, accommodation and registration for SGC.

Submission details:

The essay shall be around 1500 words and address the following theme:

Space debris has become a major threat for our spacecraft and humans in space, which cannot be neglected any more. Unintended collisions of active and non-operational spacecraft in the recent past have resulted in a strong increase of space debris, which has increased the risk of failure for our active space assets significantly.

The objective of this OHB Scholarship is to describe innovative ideas to reduce the risk for our space assets due to space debris. For example, through increasing protection, reducing vulnerability, avoiding collisions, active debris removal, or other means.

The winner of the scholarship will present their paper at this year’s SGC and will have their paper published on the SGAC and/or OHB website.
