ISU is honoured to announce its new chancellor, Dr. ‘Buzz’ Aldrin. ISU has been very selective in choosing Chancellors who are considered by its students as extremely important figures in the space world.

The first Chancellor, A. C. Clarke is certainly most reputed as a Science Fiction writer (as one of ‘The Big Three’, together with Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein), but was also a scientist, passionate by Space Travel.

He was then followed by another important space personality, Prof. J.J. Dordain. Prof. Dordain was not only an outstanding figure with educational assignments at universities all over Europe, he was also strongly involved in the European space strategy and became Director General of ESA, the European Space Agency.
After prolongation of his term as chancellor, and in order to have a geographical rotation, the Board of Trustees approved a successor to Prof. Dordain in the person of another famous space pioneer, Dr. ‘Buzz’ Aldrin.

After engineering studies Buzz Aldrin joined the Airforce as a pilot. Later he earned a doctorate at MIT. After being selected by NASA as astronaut, he was involved in Gemini missions and in particular in EVA experiments. Evidently Buzz Aldrin became most famous during the Apollo 11 flight as one of the first Moonwalkers.

As was expressed during the annual International Astronautical Congress (IAC15) by the new Chancellor, Dr. ‘Buzz’ Aldrin:

"ISU being the top of space education, I am delighted to be part of the leadership. I am so honoured to be the new Chancellor of ISU following in Arthur C Clarke's footsteps."

The previous ISU Chancellor, Prof. Dordain, stated:

"It was an honour for me to have two turns as ISU Chancellor and to have the privilege to work with the next generation of space experts. It is even more of a honour to be the chancellor between two persons I admired personally since many years and who both inspired my career".

Symbolically, the transfer of chancellorship has taken place at a special ISU event during the International Astronautical Federation yearly Congress, this year in Jerusalem, Israel.

WHAT OUR ALUMNI SAY


"My life can be clearly divided between before and after ISU. ISU was a breaking point that created a world of possibilities in front of me."

Carmen Felix - MSS10 -

"Attending ISU has been, for me, the ultimate eye-opening experience. Attending the Master of Space Studies allowed me to pursue my personal interests with a limit determined only by my imagination."

Diego Urbina - MSS09 -

"My space flight was the changing point in my whole life. Since my background was mechanical engineering, I did not know much about space, which led me to the International Space University."

Soyeon Yi - SSP09 -

"ISU is broadening the global space community and connecting New Space countries to old and mighty ones."

Mart Vihmand - SSP11&MSS13 -
