When one thinks of Georgia’s role in our nation’s transportation system, air and rail dominate the discussion. Coupled with the state’s port facilities and extensive road network, and it is easy to see how central the Peach State is to nearly every aspect of the country’s transportation infrastructure.
What we hope to add to the discussion is the space industry. Georgia's small but growing portfolio in spaceflight, satellites, telecommunications, and space science activities has captured national attention lately with Spaceport Camden's launch of Vector's rocket test flight and other recent successes. Georgia’s entrepreneurial talent, research facilities, and infrastructure are ready to take on the next level of space transportation and activity. With your help, Georgia Space Alliance hopes to support and promote these achievements and future space visions for the state.
Through networking and member events, public panels, information sharing and outreach, education support, and advocacy, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit Georgia Space Alliance will bring together professionals, enthusiasts, businesses, and organizations to form a unified community to support and promote space activities and development within the state.
We will be hosting our official kick-off event at Grain Spirits + Food in midtown Atlanta, on Thursday, October 19, 2017 in partnership with the 1st Symposium on Space Innovations. The GSA Space Party, which is open to the public, will give members – and prospective members – the opportunity to meet with like-minded people while enjoying food and drink. There will also be a costume contest along with a space-themed art gallery.
Following our kick-off event, the GSA plans to continue hosting, partnering with, and promoting space-related activities and events, such as Georgia Aerospace Day and a public panel series. Space-related events throughout the state are featured on our calendar. Please reach out to us if we can assist you in promoting or hosting a relevant event in Georgia.
You don't need to wait until the official kick-off in order to become a member. Join now as a student, individual, corporation, or lifetime member. Prices are discounted until 2018, so take advantage of the opportunity to be a founding member!
