Welcome to the SGAC Russia page!

Russia has a great history of space exploration, having launched the first satellite and the first man in space. Its contribution to the space sector development is enormous and still continues to grow. Despite having gone through many changes and obstacles in recent decades, Russia still occupies a leading position in the space sector. Space achievements give inspiration and hope for people all over the country. SGAC Russia is here to make it easier for the Russian university students and young professionals to build a stronger network, enhance their voice in space policy, and develop their leadership skills!

At the moment Russia is represented by one National Point of Contact (NPoC) - Anastasia Ilina. 2017 year is full of space activities and the interest of youth to space industry is rapidly growing. It is also important to mention the fact, that Russian Space Agency and Ministry of Youth Policy continues some space outreach projects and  organizes programs for young people. 


Young Space Activities Overview in Russia 

Rocket Festival

Space Academy for children

Past year for Russian Space was exciting and full of interesting activities. 

Lots of scientific events such as conferences, forums and space meetings were organized in Russia this year. Young professionals and students were involved in many projects at schools and universities. They had exciting opportunities to challenge themselves by participating in different space related contests. 

As usual lots of satellites conferences and schools programs were conducted during the year. A project called “Space lessons” – a special course of lectures giving from ISS for children – was launched.

And we hope next year will hold this high level of interest to space science!

Aside from these academic and professional activities, there are various astronomical clubs spread all over the country where young enthusiasts can share their passion and interests. SGAC hopes to link you to them and them to you!

We are always ready to help you with your international experience!
