Abstract:
On May 7th, 2011, the National Space Society's Space Ambassador
program began its year-long mission. The program, which was over two
years in development, is the first of its kind. The mission of the
Space Ambassador program is to communicate the benefits of space
exploration to our daily lives and to inspire and educate young people
and the public to pursue careers in science, engineering, and
mathematics. We wish to inspire a new generation of leaders to take an
active role in helping to create the future they wish to see come to
pass.

NSS Kicks-off Space Ambassador Program with Reception at ISDC

Huntsville, AL | Posted on June 13th, 2011

A reception will be held at the International Space Development
Conference on Saturday, May 21 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm in South Hall
Ballroom 1 of the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL. The media and
interested individuals are encouraged to attend. There will be a
presentation by Lee Jones, a founding pilot of Virgin America and
Director of the Space Ambassador program, followed by a question and
answer period. Refreshments will be provided.

Space ambassadors will achieve the program goals by scheduling and
conducting speeches and presentations where they see fit, particularly
in schools and universities. These presentations are conducted by
volunteers who share the dreams and goals necessary to expand
commercial space and space exploration endeavors of the future.

To date there are approximately 5,000 registered Space Ambassadors
worldwide. Almost every country on Planet Earth is represented in this
program. At the end of the program run, the top Space Ambassadors will
be announced at the 2012 International Space Development conference in
Washington D.C. and their award missions will be assigned.

The top ambassador will be assigned a research trip to space on
Virgin Galactic's Space Ship Two and report back to the Society and
its members. Other ambassadors will be assigned space training and
research with ZeroG Corporation, NASTAR center and Aurora Aerospace,
among others.

It is envisioned the program will reach out to over one million
students around the globe during the course of the program and inspire
future space industry leaders, giving its audiences valuable
information regarding commercial space development and exploration
progress. This will enable students to make educated decisions
regarding their future education goals.

About ISDC: The International Space Development Conference is the
annual conference of the National Space Society. ISDC 2011, hosted by
the Huntsville, Alabama L5 Society (HAL5), will take place at the Von
Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama, May 18-23, 2011.
