What is the Space Generation Fusion Forum
Held annually in scenic Colorado Springs in conjunction with the Space Symposium, the Space Generation Fusion Forum is a two-day, high-intensity, fast-paced professional development and networking event focused on the international and US space industry. Delegates are students and young professionals from around the world and various facets of the space sector including science, engineering, law/policy, business/commerce, medicine, media, military, and government. Through discussion tracks, expert panels, keynote presentations, and interactive activities, these selected delegates will “fuse” their perspectives.
By attending the Space Generation Fusion Forum, delegates will learn, share their knowledge, network with fellow students and young professionals in the space industry, and meet the industry’s leaders and experts.
All output produced by the Space Generation Fusion Forum is compiled into a report to be presented at the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, as well as other conferences around the world.
Who should attend the Space Generation Fusion Forum
We invite students and young professionals between the age of 18 to 35 (as of April 16, 2018) who are nationals of United Nations member states and are passionate about the space industry to apply to be part of the delegation. Past delegates have attended from around the world and from a wide variety of disciplines.
Delegate applications for the 2018 Space Generation Fusion Forum are now open until 10 February 2018. Follow SGAC on social media to keep up to date!
“Into the Mainstream”
As space begins to enter the mainstream in our daily culture, the next generation will have to tackle problems ranging from regular launches interfering with air traffic patterns and increasingly congested orbits requiring space traffic management, to the lack of public excitement and therefore funding as trips to the Moon and Mars become more regular.
Simultaneously, the International Space Station, which has served as an anchor for space exploration, international collaboration, and commercial opportunities for the last 20 years, is reaching the end of its support cycle with increasing rhetoric of moving on to other projects. Once space becomes an even more obvious and ubiquitous part of our everyday lives, can we step beyond the engineering driven space exploration towards a more diverse group of occupations and nationalities in order to maintain a high level of sustainability in space?
