In July 2015, the UK Space Agency published a paper which formally confirmed that the UK now supports the human exploration of space. This conference will provide an opportunity to respond to this announcement, two weeks before Britain’s first official Astronaut, Tim Peake, is due to depart for the International Space Station.

Have Your Say - Human spaceflight excites many people and evokes a wide range of views. We are therefore planning a soapbox session during the conference in which delegates may present their reactions to the UK Space Agency’s new strategy document in a 5-minute pitch.
