Announcements



SpaceBoard has signed memoranda of understanding (MOU) with two European students’ associations EUROAVIA and VSV.


EUROAVIA is the European Association of Aerospace Students, representing the interests of over 2000 students from 38 universities in 19 European countries. Established in 1959, EUROAVIA wants to be a bridge between companies, universities and students. Their goals include promoting European cooperation in the aerospace field, representing European aerospace students internationally, and acquainting student members with their future working environment by stimulating contacts with the industry.


VSV, Society of Aerospace Students ‘Leonardo da Vinci’, is TU Delft Aerospace students’ study association. Currently there are approximately 2300 members, making the Society of Aerospace Engineering Students the largest society of its kind in the Benelux. The Society aims to serve the interests of aerospace students in all aspects of student life- studies, networking as well as career development.


SpaceBoard will help promote on its platform the activities carried out by theses societies, such as working groups, workshops, events or competitions in order to make them accessible to a broader audience of students interested in space science and technology. Additionally, through specifically designed features, SpaceBoard will help foster communication and exchanges within the EUROAVIA and VSV communities, encouraging interactions among members, helping them leverage their memberships and gain access to a field of new opportunities.


SpaceBoard is creating a professional network dedicated to the space industry. Find out more at www.spaceboard.eu.

The iconic launch pads, Pads 39A and 39B at Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 39, have been the starting point for many space flights including the first manned lunar landing. The original design for Launch Complex 39 called for three to five launch pads, designated 39A – 39E, that would have been spaced approximately 1.6 miles apart to protect them from damage if any mishaps occurred at an adjacent pad. Also part of Launch Complex 39 is the Vehicle Assembly Building, or VAB. Towering more than 500 feet, it can be seen easily from miles away. The Launch Control Center, or LCC, where all the launch controllers, support personnel, and equipment required to safely launch a vehicle from either of the launch pads is also a part of the large complex.

The Unexpected Gifts of Space

Since times immemorial, there has been a huge hue and cry over the ostensibly large sums of money we spend on research and development in space technology with no apparent benefits to mankind. This, however, can’t be further away from the truth. We have seen, in the past five decades, that not only has the space industry itself grown in leaps and bounds, but it has also led to advancements in the vastly different fields of science that are associated with it.
