History of SGAC
SGAC 20th Anniversary
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. We know how much these historic events have influenced us, and how much it keeps echoing in our actions every day. Alongside the first human steps on another celestial body, this year we could not be more happy to celebrate the Space Generation Advisory Council’s 20th Anniversary as well.
