Registrations open for the Space Science in Context (SSiC) online conference

Join on the 26th January 2023 the Space Science in Context (SSiC): a FREE online conference that unpacks the social dimensions of outer space.

There will be three panels of invited speakers who will be live in conversation – on Space and the Environment; Space, Technology and Dual-Use; and Labour and Space – packed with wonderful speakers, and two poster sessions of contributions from around the world on how space interacts with local social contexts.
