Can we reach the stars?
No extraterrestrials have yet visited us – but neither have we stepped out onto the galactic stage. Are we destined to belong to Earth for as long as we survive? Or can we reach the stars?
Breakthrough Starshot is a $100 million research and engineering program aiming to lay the foundations for a flyby mission to Alpha Centauri, our nearest star system, within a generation. This is one of several privately-funded global initiatives to answer the fundamental science questions surrounding the origin, extent and nature of life in the universe. The Breakthrough Initiatives are managed by the Breakthrough Prize Foundation.

SHSSP19 - Hazards of Human Space Exploration
Guest Speaker: Dr Gordon Cable
Plans for the exploration of deep space over the coming decades will see humans travel deeper into space and for longer periods than at any time in human history. A permanent presence in cis-lunar orbit, exploration of the lunar surface, and missions to the Mars system are all being planned. This new era of space exploration will expose humans to hazards not experienced since the Apollo program of the 1960s and 70s, but magnified by greater distance and much longer exposures. This presentation will use the paradigm of NASA’s Human Research Program (HRP) which prioritizes 5 hazards of human spaceflight to explore the ways that the deep space environment can affect human physiology and health, and the challenges that must be overcome for exploration missions to succeed.
SH-SSP19 - Astronaut & Human Spaceflight Panel
Guest Speaker: Mr Paolo Nespoli
The International Astronaut Event is a long-standing highlight in ISU sessions. Members of the general-public will have an opportunity to ask a broad range of questions of our invited astronaut and obtain their autograph. We are delighted to announce that Mr Paolo Nespoli will deliver a presentation on spaceflight and will provide an insight and opinion, with a particular emphasis on the human factors involved in spaceflight as humans gain more experience in long-duration missions in order to prepare for inter-planetary travel.
Paolo visited the International Space Station in 2007 as a member of the STS-120 crew and returned for six months from December 2010 to May 2011 with Expedition 26/27. Paolo’s third flight to the Space Station was from July to December 2017 as part of a barter agreement between NASA and Italy’s ASI space agency.

EXSSPRESSIONS - The Story of SSP18
It was a 'Sizzling Summer of Space' to remember. Hosted by the Netherlands Space Office (NSO), in collaboration with three leading Dutch space organizations: the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), Leiden University and ESA’s European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESA-ESTEC) in Noordwijk, the Space Studies Program 2018 was an incredible experience that 135 participants from 37 countries will remember for a very long time.
The movie EX'SSP'RESSIONS is a visual memoir of the extraordinary summer and narrates the tale of how a bunch of amazing individuals came together to explore every avenue of space, and while on their journey how they experienced something beautiful by the international, intercultural, and interdisciplinary aspect of the International Space University's Space Studies Program.
Produced by the Media Team at SSP18.

SSP Talks with Gary Martin
With an immense experience in creating successful international collaborations within NASA, Gary Martin, one of the former directors of SSP, and currently an advisor for the Ministry of Luxembourg, share his thoughts on SSP, how it's become one of the best parts of his amazing space journey, and his vision for the future of ISU.
SSP Talks with John Connolly
John Connolly, currently the Mars Study Capability team Lead at NASA, and former director of SSP speaks about his SSP journey, big picture perspective that ISU provides and especially, the SSP Rocket Launch competition that he has been leading since its inception.
Welcoming the Alumni
Some of the alumni and people who have been associated with ISU for a long time welcome the fellow alumni for the grand alumni weekend at SSP 18. It was one awesome weekend!
SSP18 - Rocket Launch
As SSP 18 comes to the end of its first half, the skies of Noordwijk are pierced by the screeching rockets designed, built and launched by the SSP 18 folks. There were 5 teams, 5 launches, and one amazing day at the ESA BIC, Noordwijk.

Launch - The First Stories of SSP18
Every adventure has to have a wonderful beginning, and SSP18 isn't an exception! From Astronaut Panel to Improv, and from amazing visits to cultural nights, the first two weeks provided some incredible experiences to the participants. Here's a quick recap of it!

SSP Talks with Prof. Jeff Hoffman
Professor Hoffman, one of the members of the STS-61 crew who fixed the Hubble Space Telescope which eventually captured some of the most amazing pictures humans have ever captured. Here at SSP Talks, Professor Hoffman shares his connection with ISU, what he loves the most about the program, and a few beautiful thoughts from his spaceflight experience.

Alastair Reynolds @ ISU - Space and Science-Fiction
Alastair Reynolds recently gave a lecture to the MSS18 students of the International Space University on Space and Science-Fiction, a lecture which matches together two of his passions, science and writing.
His involvement with written science fiction began in the mid-1970s. As far as he can remember, he always liked writing and making up stories, but he decided to take the path of scientific studies. He studied astronomy and astrophysics at Newcastle and graduated in 1988. He moved to Scotland after completing his degree and spent three years gaining a doctorate in astronomy. He then moved to the Netherlands as a research fellow at the European Space Agency. He spent another two years as a post-doctoral researcher at Utrecht university and then was back to ESA as a contract researcher. By the time he concluded his scientific career in 2004, he was four books into his new life as a novelist.
According to him, writing is both a vocation and a hobby, although he feels that there are days when it feels more like a job than a past-time. Alastair informed the students that it is an extraordinary privilege to be able to make his living from what is, essentially, just making things up.
ISU Space Capsule - Melissa GUZMAN
Melissa Guzman’s recent lecture “Forty years on: reanalyzing Viking 1 and 2 data” enthralled the Master of Space Studies students. Being herself a former ISU student (MSS15), she managed to raise a very strong interest in the audience.
She is currently a doctoral Student in Astrophysics and Planetary Science at LATMOS (Laboratoire Atmosphères, Milieux, Observations Spatiales) in France.
She previously worked at the NASA Ames Research Center as a Research Associate on Planetary Science and Astrobiology . She worked on projects such as restoring and reanalyzing the Mars Viking Lander Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GCMS) data; ice plume modeling and mission concept support for ongoing efforts to visit Saturn’s moon, Enceladus; and supporting plant growth CubeSat projects for planetary science.
The International Space University is always happy to welcome back its former students as visiting lecturers!
Ioannis Michaloudis @ ISU - Aerosculpte projects
Dr. Ioannis Michaloudis recently lectured ISU’s MSS18 students on Aerosculpte projects. He is a visual artist, academic & researcher internationally
acknowledged as one of the leaders in Art & Science. He believes that “interdisciplinarity is the future of our world”. He is the first ever creator and
investigator on the application of NASA’s nanomaterial silica aerogel in Visual
Arts, Design and Architecture. He started his career in Paris as a researcher at
Sorbonne University where he presented his thesis in 1998 on the elastic
relationships between Visual Arts & Design. In 2001, after receiving the Fulbright
Award for Greek Artists, he moved to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
in the United States. He has had twelve solo international exhibitions and has been invited in more than twenty international Art & Science exhibitions and conferences.
He is currently coordinating the post-graduate program in Visual Arts at Charles
Darwin University in Australia.
