May 3 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm +04
About the Event:
It’s our pleasure to invite you to the “Space Information Management Systems: from Mitigating the Five Hazards of Space Health to the Mission to Mars” seminar.
In this session co-hosted by the AUA Open Centers of Excellence, Dr. Armen Kherlopian will take you through key topic areas around information use across the rising sectors of space health, exploration, mining, tourism, and telecommunications.
Moreover, you will learn more about the terrestrial implications of the increased availability of satellite imagery, from use cases at startups to that informing policy related to the environment.
To date, only 600 people have been to space. With that number set to rise drastically in the coming years, the emergence of space as an industry holds an opportunity for collaboration globally.
