SGAC Announces a New Executive Office Assistant
1 July, 2010

Bernardo Santos of Brazil will be joining the SGAC team as the Executive Office Assistant in Vienna, Austria.  Bernardo will support SGAC's daily operations, the continued development of the organisation's website, and Space Generation Congress 2010 organisation during his time with SGAC.  Executive Director, Ariane Cornell, states "We are very happy to have Bernardo on board.  His impressive international space background and energy make him perfect for the position here at SGAC, and I look forward to working with him."  Bernardo adds, "Outer space is a whole new concept men cannot grasp just by applying the same old ideas and models that have worked down here on Earth. That is why it is very exciting for me to join SGAC and be able to help young and creative minds to come up with unorthodox ways to reach farther away into space."
