    Space * SUSTAINABILITY

    Short course (Strasbourg) by International Space University (ISU) · €2000 (~£1709) · Current

    The impact of economic activities on the environment on the largest scales has become increasingly prominent over the recent decades. The present and expected costs of the global changes prompt governments, international organizations, public opinions, and interest groups to push to reduce their environmental and societal footprint through self- and externally-imposed regulations. The space sector is no exception. Both the public-sponsored and private-led activities must justify and reduce their negative impacts, abide by national and international regulations, and develop industrial processes that take into account future costs and taxes. Interestingly, the space sector has long been aware of the damage that careless activities can have, whether it is about telecommunications or collision risks in low-Earth orbits. On the other hand, space activities and in particular space-based Earth observations are critical to the understanding, monitoring, and mitigation of the human-caused and natural modifications and dangers of the planet’s climate and geological parameters. The monitoring of greenhouse gas atmospheric content, hydro- and cryosphere evolution, accidental and criminal pollutant releases into the environment, is crucial to make predictions, advising the decision-makers, and preventing harmful activities. In this 9-day course, experts and actors of the space sector will explain how companies and space agencies tackle their environmental and societal responsibilities; how they design and conduct the Life Cycle Assessment of their products, through initiatives such as the ESA EcoDesign or at Airbus; and the research that is conducted on propellants, recycling, and company processes to reduce their footprint. Researchers will present the methodology, capacities, limitations, and technical developments of Earth observations and their contribution to agriculture, emergency mapping and management, and law enforcement. The participants will also learn about the current and to-be-expected political and legal constraints, from international lecturers of space agencies, academia, and the industry, involved in the definition and promotion of a sustainable space sector.

    Space * ASTROBIOLOGY

    Short course (Strasbourg) by International Space University (ISU) · €2000 (~£1709) · Current

    Astrobiology is the interdisciplinary study of life in the universe and touches on some of the most profound questions in both science and philosophy. How and when did life on Earth emerge from a ‘pool of organic molecules’? Is there life on Mars, extant or extinct? Could other bodies in the solar system harbor life, e.g. Enceladus, Titan and Europa? Do intelligent civilizations exist elsewhere in our galaxy? All of these questions – and many more – will be addressed in ISU’s 7th annual Astrobiology Elective (April 11-21, 2023). The Elective will welcome some of the finest Astrobiologists in the world, e.g. Dr. Christopher P. McKay (NASA Ames Research Center), Dr. Frances Westall (Director Emeritus of the CNRS Exobiology Group, Orléans) and Dr. Joseph A. Nuth, III (NASA Goddard Space Flight Center). The program will highlight current and future astrobiology missions, e.g. Martian rovers such as Perseverance and its successors. The Elective will consist of presentations, roundtable discussions, workshops, and a field trip devoted to collecting and analyzing magnetotactic bacteria. The single deliverable will be a group White Paper, of which there will be four offered. In the past, they have included topics such as, “The potential of the Canadian Arctic for Astrobiology research”, and “Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a Biomarker for the Astrobiology Community”.

    Space * OMICS

    Short course (Strasbourg) by International Space University (ISU) · €2000 (~£1709) · Current

    How does being in space affect an organism? At the cellular and biochemical level? Omics techniques have revolutionized molecular biology, permitting detailed snapshots of an organism’s cellular activity in different environments or over periods of time. Thousands of data points can be collected at a time, using blood samples or easy-to-collect samples like urine or saliva. Omics techniques enable statistically powerful low “n” studies which are perfect for space research, given the fact that there are only a few people or animals on each space mission. The first space examination of genes, gene products (enzymes and other proteins), and products of enzymatic reactions (metabolites) have already started to provide important and sometimes surprising results. This intensive 2-week course will permit students to access and analyze omics data from NASA’s GeneLab: genomic, proteomic and metabolic data from animal and plant studies conducted in space or Earth-based space analogs. Student groups will formulate an hypothesis and conduct their own analysis to determine changes in gene expression. Faculty will guide the students through the processes of experimental design, data analysis, interpretation of results, and communication of findings. This first of its kind course was initially developed with the help of ESA funding and will be offered again April 24 – May 5, 2023, at ISU’s campus in Strasbourg France.

    Aseptic Processing: Principles in Practice

    Short course (Durham and Varies) by Honeyman · £1560 · Current

    It is well understood that sterility of an aseptic product cannot be determined by direct assessment of the finished product. Therefore, microbiological safety of the product can only be achieved by careful assessment of the hazards and control measures in place to provide the confidence that the items are safe for the patient and fit for use. Historically aseptic processes have relied heavily on monitoring of the environment, air, surfaces and personnel to verify the success of the process. However, modern aseptic processes require a more holistic assessment of all the protective measures in place within the process and the complex interaction between these control measures, this approach is fully covered within this course. We guarantee that on completion of this course, with the knowledge gained, you will look at aseptic processing from a new perspective.

    Land in Focus – Forest Ecosystems

    MOOC (Online) by European Space Agency (ESA) and EO College · Free · Current

    Urbanization is changing our planet. About half of the world’s population already lives in cities. By 2050 that proportion is expected to rise to two-thirds. The loss of vegetation and the sprawl of impervious surfaces that are connected to this process are the cause of many problems societies have to face in the future. On the social level cities in the southern hemisphere are experiencing an uptick in unregulated settling resulting in the sprawl of slums, leaving large amounts of people in dire situations cut off from the most basic needs of daily life. Remote sensing can help to better understand those problems by capturing the changes in urban areas. Besides just visual observations, it also can provide quantification and more detailed information on the impacts of those changes, and thus provide decision-makers with valuable information.

    Impact of COVID-19 measures on Atmospheric Composition

    MOOC (Online) by European Space Agency (ESA) and Imperative Space · Free · Current

    The global Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic saw many governments take unprecedented measures to limit the spread of the virus. These measures included a mixture of social distancing, a ban on large gatherings, the closing of schools, universities, restaurants and other non-essential stores, and a reduction in air travel, the closure of borders and other non-essential travel restrictions. Many of these measures have had a significant impact on the anthropogenic emissions in the atmosphere due to the drastic drop in road and air traffic and a strong reduction of industrial activities in non-essential sectors across the globe. To assess these impacts, ESA started the 'Impact study of COVID-19 lockdown measures on air quality and climate' (ICOVAC) project.

    UK SAR Workshop

    Seminar (Leeds) by Space Hub Yorkshire · Free · Past

    Space Hub Yorkshire presents the UK SAR Workshop. SAR – Synthetic Aperture Radar – is an active imaging process with applications to environment, civil and defence sectors. SAR sensors can be hosted on satellites, drones or in-situ and have the ability to ‘see through clouds’, meaning that SAR imagery of the Earth can be constructed when optical imagery cannot, for example when it’s cloudy or at night. With the new UK Space Strategy and Defence Space Strategy, there is a big need for the UK to develop its SAR capability as we seek to expand both our civil and defence use of Space data. The UK has world-renowned expertise in SAR, and this workshop is particularly timely because of the status of the UK involvement in Copernicus and the potential failure of ESA SAR satellite Sentinel-1b. Space Hub Yorkshire are hosting a one-day UK SAR Workshop on Monday 11th April, to stimulate discussions across the academic, commercial, civil and defence communities. We hope this will be a great opportunity to bring the whole UK community together. This will be held at Nexus, University of Leeds, with the option to join virtually.

    Sustainability in Space? Could Safety Cases Help

    Seminar (Online) by Safety and Reliability Society (SaRS) · Free · Past

    The growth of satellites in orbit has been matched by a growth in orbital debris. With the recent increase in mega constellations, the importance of taking a sustainable approach to space operations is increasingly a priority. Since the earliest days of space activity, international agreements such as the Outer Space Treaty, national laws and licensing, and of course standards and guidance have all played a part in ensuring that a balanced approach is taken to space operations. But what else can be learnt from other sectors ? This talk will explore what aspects of the ground based regulatory environment in the UK could be usefully applied to a hypothetical Safety Case in Space approach. Considering a generic low earth orbit mid-sized satellite, the pros and cons of a potential safety case informed approach will be explored for a full lifecycle in orbit operation, from deployment through to de-orbiting.
