Event Summary

On May 2, 2017 at their joint meeting, the Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board (ASEB) and the Space Studies Board (SSB) hosted a one-day symposium on America's Future in Civil Space.

In the context of revisiting the National Academies effort that led to the 2009 report, America's Future in Space: Aligning the Civil Space Program with National Needs, the boards have organized this symposium to address the evolution of the 2009 report's recommendations in the context of current topics and issues in civil space policy. The agenda was coordinated by a small organizing committee drawn from both boards and the one-day participatory workshop will focus on three moderated panel and audience discussions on Space in Support of National and International Challenges, Future of Exploration and Discover, and Public-Private Partnerships in Pursuit of National Space Priorities. The symposium also included a set of "lightning" talks in key challenges and opportunities in technology development and space science.

The goal was to conduct the one-day meeting as a dynamic discussion-focused event with the leaders of our civil space efforts in the room. We  emphasized discussion among the panelists and the attendees, in an intimate meeting venue and with the goal of thoroughly discussing and looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for this important national effort.


This event was sponsored by NASA, through its support of the ASEB and SSB Spring meetings, by the Lockheed Martin Corporation's support of the ASEB's 50th Anniversary Fund, and by the Heising Simons Foundation.
