These competitions are designed to achieve key mission objectives, namely:

  • Develop effective strategies for challenges and issues facing future deep space exploration missions
  • Design hardware and/or software to improve astronauts’ life and work
  • Develop sustainable techniques for future space missions to reduce negative human impact on solar system bodies
  • Involve the public, especially students and young professionals, in space exploration missions, operations, and scientific experiments by providing them the opportunity to contribute their ideas and solutions to current and future challenges
  • Foster a deeper public understanding of the importance of human space flight and its role in human and technological development
  • Inspire the next generation to dream of and design a future in space
  • Spread SGAC’s visions and activities around the world

 

The competitions will consist of several rounds for different types of competitions. The first round contains 3 competitions focused on themes of human life, activity, and impact on the Moon and Mars, which are designed to be accessible and interesting to a wide range of audience.
