Depending on their background and interests, students have the opportunity to present a paper on a topic related to NSE 2022: Sustainability as a Game Changer for the New Space Economy through the Changing Earth (climate, resources, hazards), Space Pollution (debris, space weather, dark skies), Human Health (astronauts lessons learned, medicine, telemedicine, food), and Innovative Space Ventures (space tourism, new sustainable designs, fashion, etc). A multidisciplinary approach, one of the drivers of this Challenge, is fundamental to promoting creativity and innovation, to engage the next generations and build a sustainable future.
Three selected proposals will be presented at the NSE 2022 conference in December and promoted on the website and official social media channels of the event.
The first prize is a parabolic flight, where the lucky winner will experience « weightlessness », the closest thing to actually flying in space! Students need to be at least 18 years to be eligible for this prize. Stay tuned… and follow your dreams!
