Papers & Reports


One of SGAC’s primary mandates is to act as the forum in which the next generation of space leaders can express their views on pertinent space topics and policies. What you will find on this page are reports and presentations that express the opinions of members from the international SGAC community on topics ranging from space's role in climate change mitigation and manned space exploration to the development of the upcoming space workforce and the direction of the space sector in the next decade. For further information on any of these reports or presentations please contact us at Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam.
