The 2021 International Space Solar Power Student Competition is a global, undergraduate and graduate level annual event presented by SPACE Canada, in partnership with the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) Power Committee, National Space Society (NSS), and the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC), is in its fifth year.
Canada boasts a long, proud history of leadership in the space sector. The Canadian Space Agency’s mastery of science and technology is perhaps best depicted through its robotic emblems such as the Canadarm, Canadarm2 and Dextre. Today, however, the space sector is growing and changing rapidly. These winds of change bare a resemblance to the vibrant colours of autumn in Canada, and Canadian scientists, engineers, and private businesses are certainly responding in stride, with a bustling, growing space economy and emerging opportunities, including a progressive start-up scene.
