Space Activities in Mexico


Orion - Kukulcan Temple

In Mexico, the interest for space has a long history, from the Teotihuacan civilization to the Mayan, to the Aztecs and teotihuacan cultures till our days. Many of the main characters have been curious and adventurous young people. Through the projects that we are developing on our national universities and the independent clubs and societies, we are getting pretty unstoppable. We have realized that space science and engineering can be a big motivation in the eternal human quest to find our place in the universe.

During 2016 several space events will take place in the country, involving young people. Many of these events will happen thanks to the efforts done by the Mexican Space Agency (AEM) to strengthen the collaboration between agencies, educational institutions and all the actors of the space community in Mexico and abroad. Of course some of them are happening in view to the Space Generation Congress and the International Astronautical Conference happening this year in Guadalajara. Several courses and trainings are still ongoing thanks to the collaboration agreements done by AEM. The astronauts Jose Hernandez and Rodolfo Neri Vela are planning several activities this year.

The Local Organisation Team for SGC is being formed. Keep visiting the site to see updates!

Good News: Guadalajara City was selected to host the International Astronautical Congress in 2016!!!
