The Space Medicine and Life Sciences (SMLS) and Space Safety and Sustainability (SSS) project groups of the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC), alongside the University College London (UCL) Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction (IRDR) Space Health Risks Research Group, are launching a short answer competition to recruit members to work alongside their research team.
SGAC is looking for a volunteer to become a co-lead of the Space Safety and Sustainability Project Group. The new co-lead will work with current co-lead, Maren Hülsmann, to support the activities of the Project Group, and will report to the project group coordinators Ciro Farinelli and Alessandra Vernile.
SGAC is proud to announce the winners of the South American Space Leader Award 2019 who will be sponsored to attend the 5th SA-SGW 2019 event to be held in La Paz, Bolivia.
SGAC is pleased to announce Alexander Gilbert (USA) as the winner of the SSS Essay Competition 2019. Organized with the support of the European Southern Observatory (ESO), the SGAC Space Safety and Sustainability (SSS) Project Group invited participants aged 18 to 35 from around the world to take part in this essay competition. The competition provided entrants with the opportunity to introduce new ideas on the topic of how humankind could expand into outer space and most importantly, in a safe and sustainable way.
