Since Nikola Tesla, one of the world’s finest scientist and researcher, Serbia kept providing the international community with a great number of scholars. Nikola Tesla is discoverer of radio and remote control, important for computer guided spaceships from mission control centers. Nikola Tesla is the founder of radio astronomy and in 1899 he recorded cosmic radio waves. Nikola Tesla signaled Mars by radio, he spent fifty years of his life to establish communications among of the planets by means of radio.
Next to Tesla’s achievements, one should also mention Milutin Milankovic. One of his most famous, space related work, is “Canon of the Earth’s Insolation”, which characterizes the climates of all the planets of the Solar system. The second contribution is the explanation of Earth’s long-term climate changes caused by changes in the position of the Earth in comparison to the Sun, now known as Milankovitch cycles. This explained the ice ages occurring in the geological past of the Earth, as well as the climate changes on the Earth which can be expected in the future. He founded cosmic climatology by calculating temperatures of the upper layers of the Earth’s atmosphere as well as the temperature conditions on planets of the inner Solar system, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and the Moon, as well as the depth of the atmosphere of the outer planets.
In the field of Law studies, in the 1970’s, Serbia got first Space law books, signed by domestic authors.
Unfortunately, Serbia does not have a National space agency. All space related projects are developed with the help of universities and ministries. Also, there is a great number of astronomical societies in Belgrade and in other parts of the country.
Young Space Activities Overview in Serbia
We are now in process of creating a common working space for all people who are interested in space sector. This means that we will join together people from different fields of study and provide them with a starting ground for their research.
SGAC provides students and scientist an unique opportunity to get involved in the Space sector. We encourage students and other interested people to join and help build this network.
