“Canada’s Next Space Generation” will speak to Canada’s future in space and provide a spotlight on the up-and-coming leaders of Canada’s space sector. By highlighting the next generation of industry leaders, space engineers, scientists, and astronauts, the CSS Summit will explore the changing nature of the global space industry and the evolving nature of how we incorporate space into our daily lives.
The 17th Annual Summit will provide a venue to discuss upcoming commercial space activities (e.g. space-mining), global trends (e.g. SmallSat constellations in Low-Earth Orbit) and future destinations that are being planned (i.e. Moon, Mars, and Asteroids). The key message of the Ottawa Summit will be, “Canadians are ready for take-off – from building new technologies, leading science missions, creating start-ups or innovative applications, Canadians will be there to push the limits of space”.
