Building Blocks for Future Space Exploration and Development 2014 Print
IAA Symposium on Building Blocks for Future Space Exploration and Development, Toronto, Canada, IAC 2014, 29 September-03rd October 2014

This symposium 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 symposium is organised by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA). 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 utilisation during the coming decades. The 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.
