New Generation

Through our New Generation Initiatives, we help promising young space professionals learn about the business and advance their careers

Our programs provide access to top space leaders, perspectives on industry developments and global space initiatives, insight into science, policy and space issues and extraordinary networking opportunities.

Events at the 28th National Space Symposium included:

  • A New Generation Leadership Exchange, commonly referred to as "speed mentoring," that created career conversations between New Generation attendees and leaders from Aerojet, Arianespace, ATK, EADS North America, DFL Space, Glenn Research Center, Houlihan Lokey, Infinite Links, Inmarsat Global Services, Institute of Nuclear Power Operations, Iridium, L2 Aerospace, NASA, National Reconnaissance Office, Patti Grace Smith Consulting, Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne, Satellite Industry Association, Space Foundation, Surrey Satellite Technology, The Tauri Group, Thuraya Telecommunications Company, Toffler Associates and United Launch Alliance.
  • Workshops on space budgets and on taking risks and creating opportunities. 
  • Networking receptions.
  • The United Nations' Space Generation Advisory Council's Fusion Forum (SGAC) that brought 50 top young adults from various areas of space - government, industry and academia - from around the world to engage in intense, interactive discussions with international space sector leaders.

In addition, we held a Pau Hana (after work) Networking Reception for New Generation Space Leaders at the AMOS Conference in Maui, Hawai'i, in September.
