IAA Program Committee on Future Space Exploration
Symposium On Building Blocks For Future Space Exploration And Development

This Symposium, organized by the International Academy of Astronautics will involve papers and discussion that traverse a wide range of highly valuable
future space capabilities (FSC) - in other words “building blocks” for future space exploration, development and discovery - that could enable dramatic
advances in global space goals and objectives. The international discussion of future directions for space exploration and utilisation is fully underway, including
activities involving all major space-faring nations. Decisions are now being made that will set the course for space activities for many years to come. New
approaches are needed that establish strategies, architectures, concepts and technologies that will lead to sustainable human and robotic space exploration
and utilization during the coming decades.
This symposium will examine the possible paths, beginning with current capabilities such as the International Space Station, which may lead to ambitious
future opportunities for space exploration, discovery and benefits. The sessions that comprise this symposium are key elements of current or planned
International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) studies.
