The Space Foundation was founded March 21, 1983. Since then, we have become one of the world's premier nonprofit organizations supporting space activities, space professionals and education. Our education programs have touched teachers in all 50 U.S. states and around the world, and our Space Foundation Discovery Center is becoming a world-class education center and tourist destination. On the industry side, our annual Space Symposium is the premier event for global space professionals, and The Space Report has become the authoritative guide to space activities. Our government affairs, international affairs and research and analysis programs are respected and consulted by companies, government agencies, policymakers, media, educational institutions and individuals throughout the world.
