Last month, UAG Chairman Adm. James Ellis and Chair of the Economic Development and Industrial Base Sub-Committee Dr. Mary Lynne Dittmar met with a select group of Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) members (representing the United States, France, Australia, Nigeria, India, Mexico, Brazil, Germany, and Spain) at the 69th International Astronautical Congress in Bremen, Germany. The meeting explored how SGAC, an organisation founded to provide the voice of the next generation of students and young professionals to the industry, government, space agencies and academia, could provide direct input to the UAG and further engage the young generation to get involved in space-related activities and discussions.
