11th IAA Symposium on the Future of Space Exploration Moon, Mars and Beyond: Becoming an Interplanetary Civilization
June 17, 2019 @ 08:00 – June 19, 2019 @ 17:00
A new three-days International Symposium on the future of Space Exploration will be organized by the International Academy of Astronautics and Politecnico di Torino. The symposium will be held in Torino, on 17-19 June 2019.
The International Academy of Astronautics is fostering global cooperation in Human and Robotics Space Exploration since more than 5 decades. The International Space Station program is expected to be completed by 2024 and there is no global program agreed for Human Space Flight. The goals of this new Symposium are to present the final results of IAA activities related to programs beyond Low Earth Orbit, starting from the Moon Village vision. The Moon Village is considered by many as the logic step for humans beyond LEO and a stepping stone for Mars exploration and interplanetary journeys.
The aim is to promote an exchange of ideas and experiences, within the Space community, discussing the activities presented and proposing new concrete global space exploration activities involving established and emerging space agencies and industries.
Special effort will be devoted to involve young professionals and new space start-up companies related to exploration acting as a forum for fostering new initiatives.
Papers related to Technology, Science, Programmatics, Economics, Ethical and Cultural aspects of exploration will be accepted.
