The Global Space Exploration Conference was held in Washington, DC, between 22-24 May 2012 and brought together the global space exploration stakeholder, including senior administrators and exploration managers from the major space agencies, industry, governments, academia and NGO’s. Leaders in the field converged in Washington to present results, exchange ideas, debate roadmaps, and discuss the future opportunities provided by human and robotic space exploration.
The comprehensive programme included high-level plenary events, keynote lectures and technical sessions that addressed plans for space exploration and explored how industry, politics, and law would help shaping the future environment for this exciting domain of astronautics.
Global Lunar Conference (GLUC)
31 May – 3 June 2010
Our desire to return to the Moon is irrefutable proof of the human need to constantly explore new and distant horizons. Such plans are an important element in encouraging nations to work together in the interests of peaceful cooperation in outer space. Lunar missions will lead us to new understanding of the origin and the development of our Solar System. They will open new avenues towards a utilisation of lunar resources that could be used in both the exploration of outer space and here on planet Earth. In organising this conference, the IAF promotes international cooperation, scientific investigation, technological development and helps to solve legal issues which will stimulate the peaceful use of the Moon.
