66th International Astronautical Congress (IAC)

The IAC is the one place and time of the year when all space actors come together. Global, multidisciplinary and covering all space sectors and topics, it offers everyone the latest space information, developments but above all contacts and potential partnerships. Each year, the IAC changes country, theme and local organizer, enabling all to learn more about, and be a part of the world space scene.

The IAC is the platform by which over 40 administrative and technical committees support the Federation in its mission to advance knowledge about space and to foster the development of space assets by facilitating global cooperation.

At its annual International Astronautical Congress (IAC) and other thematic conferences, the IAF brings its multidisciplinary and international network to life.

Start: October 12, 2015

Workshop on Space Weathering of Airless Bodies

In preparation for missions to primitive asteroids and to better interpret recent remote sensing datasets from Mercury, the Moon, and other objects, we need a better understanding of how the space environment alters the surfaces of airless bodies from a remote sensing perspective, how analysis of returned samples provides ground truth for interpreting the spectral data, and how laboratory experiments provide quantitative constraints on the processes involved. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together scientists across a range of disciplines to discuss and exchange ideas about space weathering processes and their effects from their different perspectives. These discussions will allow us to assess the current state of knowledge and to identify the major gaps in our understanding of space weathering in preparation for new asteroid encounters and sample return missions.

Start: November 2, 2015

Venue: Universities Space Research Association (USRA) building
