COSPAR 2010 Conference
July 18 to 25, 2010
The Canadian Space Agency participates to the COSPAR 38th scientific assembly, in Bremen, Germany July 18-25, 2010.
The Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) was established by the International Council for Science in 1958. COSPAR's objectives are to promote on an international level scientific research in space.
In 2010, Canada supports the participation of 19 students in the COSPAR Scientific Assembly.
This Assembly is an excellent meeting point for all space science experts, providing students the opportunity to create many valuable contacts with professionals and like-minded students, both from within Canada and the world.
Throughout the Assembly, students will interact with science professionals, learn from their expertise and listen to their views on the future of space science.
While a Student Program will be incorporated into the Assembly student participation is also integrated into the technical portion of the Assembly bringing an appreciated element of youthful insight and energy into workshop and plenary sessions.
The Conquest of Space in Images
The space age began with the launch of Sputnik. Since then, man has walked on the Moon, robots have stirred the soil on Mars, and probes have scanned the farthest reaches of the Universe. Russia, America, Europe, and Canada embarked on an amazing space adventure. The milestone events on this journey are eloquently presented in stunning photographs in this exhibit, adapted from an original created by France's space agency, the Centre national d'études spatiales.
