Join us in this webinar series exploring analog habitats and hear directly from analog astronauts! This series is hosted by the Jordan Space Research Initiative (JSRI) and LunAres, an analog research facility based in Poland.

This year, JSRI is hosting the first two competitions of their kind in Jordan: a Rover Design Competition and Spacesuit Design Competition. LunAres is one of the key collaborators in this initiative, and has partnered with JSRI to host this educational webinar series.


These webinars will cover the following topics:

  1. Analog Habitats (presented by the director of LunAres, Leszek Orzechowski- June 21st, 8:00- 9:00 pm CEST)
  2. Experiences of Analog Astronauts with Rovers and Spacesuits (presented by the current analog crew in LunAres- June 23rd, 8:00-9:30 pm CEST)
  3. Livestream of the LunAres crew’s final EVA at the end of their mission( 3:00-6:00 pm CEST)

    The series will be moderated by Sahba El-Shawa, who is the founder of JSRI and the national coordinator for Jordan in the Space Generation Advisory Council as well as the Moon Village Association.

    The goal of these webinars is to give JSRI competition participants some insight into the operations of analog habitats, as well as an opportunity to learn directly from analog astronauts and ask them questions to help with their preliminary rover and spacesuit designs.

    The webinar series is open to everyone to observe, however only JSRI competition participants will be able to ask questions during the Q&A sessions.
