ISU’s SH-SSP17 kicks off at University of South Australia


On 9 January 2017 the 6th Southern Hemisphere Space Studies Program (SH-SSP) session has been officially opened by ISU president Prof. Walter Peeters.

After the traditional entry of the participants per country (with a strong Mexican delegation for the first time at ISU) Prof. Simon Beecham representing the hosting partner, the University of South Australia (UniSA), expressed his high satisfaction about the growing number of participants and the proven sustainability of the program.

After a stabilization around 35 participants last years, the 40+ number of participants was reached now, which showed the growth potential of the program. The fact that more than 75% of the participants were non-Australians was highly stressed and appreciated.

Also Minister Chris Picton, speaking on behalf of the prime minister, expressed his strong satisfaction about the success of this program. He also recalled the growing relation between ISU and South Australia which, in his eyes, had been a strong catalyst to bring the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) to Adelaide in 2017.

An interesting discussion evolved from this on a more permanent relation between ISU and Australia. Emphasis was put on the plans to implement a space strategy in Australia and the potential importance of ISU as an objective partner in this endeavor.

The 6th session of SH-SSP was then officially opened with a very enthusiastic group of participants, looking forward to the lectures and the spectacular dual balloon launch. In addition, the group project, focusing on the use of smallsats in emerging countries, will be followed with interest in a country which is determined to play an important role in the New Space era.
