SGAC is looking for two NPoCs of Kuwait!
Information on how to apply here.
Kuwait has not yet established a space program, however, within Kuwait exists a strong knowledgeable network of motivated youth who are passionate about the space industry and related areas. We believe that encouraging this knowledge within Kuwait is the best preparation for the time when a Kuwaiti space programme is finally established. The younger generation is the best fuel for bringing Kuwait closer to space related topics, so if you are under 35 year years old and believe in the importance of the space field as a source of opportunities for Kuwait, then join us!
If you are not sure about the benefits of a national space program, let us help you and feel free to contact us.

Young Space Activities Overview in Kuwait
There are several interesting activities organized by the youth in collaboration with SGAC, with most of them being volunteer based projects and activities. A good example of this is the Kuwait National Radio Observatory (KNRO) which is a unique project aimed at scanning our galaxy, the Milky Way, in the radio frequency band. The project’s goals are to obtain a good map of the galaxy whilst educating the public through regular lectures about radio astronomy. Another interesting project is the High Altitude Balloon Project with the goal of designing a balloon capable of reaching a height of approximately 30km, so that Earth’s curvature can be seen. This balloon project will consist of three stages with each stage involving specific experiments which will be done on the environment close to the space. The Kuwaiti chapter of SEDS, Kuwait SEDS, is a student group working hard to raise awareness of space among the youth, especially among students, by organizing various space-related activities.
