Location: Ussishkin Auditorium

This plenary highlights the active work on the International Space Station (ISS) of students and young professionals who were competitively selected through YouTube auditions. These Next Generation panelists will discuss the reasons for performing research in space vs. on Earth and will discuss results and benefits of their research – not only for deep-space exploration but also for improving life on Earth. This plenary examines new research that will take firm hold in a future when the panelists will be in the prime of their careers, executing the decisions of the day and ultimately driving the space community.
