On the 12th of May 2021, the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) released a Lunar Governance Report outlining the ideas and proposals of the young generations for the inclusive, effective and adaptive regulation of lunar activities. The Report is accessible online and is accompanied by an Executive Summary and a Lunar Manifesto.
When astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon on July 20th 1969, they announced to come in peace, on behalf of all humankind. Two years before, the Outer Space Treaty (OST) had consecrated outer space as a shared area beyond national jurisdictions, to be peacefully explored and used for the benefit and in the interest of all countries.
In the 4th episode of the SEPG webinar series on the future of space exploration, we will talk about the importance of designing and running appropriate analogue missions simulating in situ resources utilisation on the Lunar surface.
SGAC and the International Lunar Exploration Working Group (ILEWG) are looking for your ideas and visions for the future of lunar exploration. The ILEWG Scholarship – Young Lunar Explorer (YLE) recognizes young members of the space community who have been supporting the path to further lunar exploration with their scientific or technical contributions, and those with a vision on the future of the exploration of our closest celestial neighbour.
