Space Voyaging is excited to announce our participation as Media/Press at the International Conference on Space Exploration, which will take place in Turin from May 10 to May 12, 2023.
We are honored to be a part of this important event and look forward to sharing our experiences with our readers. Our platform is dedicated to providing the latest news and insights about space exploration and engineering, and this conference is a unique opportunity for us to learn from other experts in the field.
Organized by the Air and Space Academy (AAE) and supported by the Italian Association of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIDAA) and the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC), this three-day conference will be held at Politecnico di Torino (PoliTo).
It will focus on Space Exploration, both automated and manned, and aims to explore several critical themes that are essential for most exploration projects. The conference seeks to provide useful input to agencies and bodies responsible for building space exploration programs.
Themes and Sessions
The conference will consist of seven sessions that will examine various aspects of space exploration that are often under-represented in space policies.
These sessions will be prepared by groups of experts and will culminate in a wrap-up session that aims to tease out the various ideas that have emerged during the conference.
- Philosophy and Cultural Motivations: What are the profound motivations for automated and human space exploration, and where does the public interest in this endeavor come from?
- Dream Missions: This theme will be managed by SGAC with the support of AAE, and the purpose is to involve mainly young people, encouraging out-of-the-box thinking and projects for original missions.
- The First Step: Towards an Environment-Friendly Approach to Lunar Exploration: This topic will explore the means to keep the lunar orbits clean and free of debris, as well as looking into the question of waste management on the Lunar surface, particularly for manned settlements.
- Flying Machines: Solar system bodies with a significant atmosphere have been explored with balloons or parachute probes. Future such missions would require the development of various technologies and orbital infrastructures.
- Going Faster (and Further): Exploration voyages to distant solar system destinations, from mission concept to data collection and exploitation, span across at least two generations. Are there ways to accelerate the process?
- Water: Our Quest for “Oases” in the Solar System: This is about amplifying knowledge about water presence, inspiring new robotic space missions including in-situ water catch machines and return of samples on Earth as well as preparing human exploration to the Moon and Mars.
- Humans and Robots Collaboration: Automated means cannot be set against manned missions: humans and robots will always be complementary.
Each theme will be followed by a Q&A session, and a wrap-up session, moderated by SGAC, will aim to tease out the various ideas that have emerged during the conference, with the participation of the audience.
Other highlights include a contradictory debate on “Extraterrestrial life: purely a matter of probability?”.
Space Voyaging is honored to participate in this exciting event, which is expected to bring together space experts from around the world. As a Media/Press representative, Space Voyaging looks forward to sharing our insights with our readers and the general public about the latest advances in space exploration and engineering.
We are excited to learn from other experts in the field and expand our knowledge about space exploration. We are confident that this conference will provide invaluable insights into space exploration and contribute significantly to the development of space programs worldwide.
