Title

Space Expectations: Involving the Public in Space Activities

Description

Space activities have historically been based upon technological successes with science and exploration leading space activities toward major projects throughout the solar system. However, periodic disconnects have occurred as the public used to seeing major successes suddenly sees failures and begins to question the value and cost of space initiatives. An IAA-sponsored study to determine the depth of understanding and backing of space activities by the general public (in particularly young people) was recently completed. Following on from sessions at previous IACs, papers are invited which review and describe society’s expectations from space programmes, ascertain how society – particularly youth - could become more involved in space exploration, and indicate how space activities could maintain the interest and excitement of tomorrow’s youth and thus be supported (both financially and intellectually) by the public.
