ISU SSP15 OHIO, USA – Online Application Open

Newton's first law states that an object in motion will remain in motion, and nowhere is this more true than International Space University's Space Studies Program (SSP).  No sooner does the applause die down from the Closing Ceremony and the heartfelt farewells and final, tearful goodbyes expressed at the SSP14 in wonderful Montreal, than the ISU team is once again busy at work preparing for SSP15 in Athens, Ohio, USA.

SSP14 attracted 122 participants, representing 31 countries, to a program that showcased ISU's first all-female international astronaut panel, a focus on "new space" and entrepreneurism, faculty and lecturers from around the globe, a steady presence of Canadian astronauts, and a warm "bienvenue" from Canada's French-speaking province.   Among the SSP14 faculty and visitors were six of the individuals from Ohio University who will join forces with the ISU staff to deliver SSP15 from 8 June to 7 August, 2015.

Transitioning from one SSP to the next is not a discreet event – in fact, the ISU staff is often working simultaneously on FOUR SSPs at the same time – delivering the current program, planning the details with the host committee for the following year, beginning the discussions with the recently-chosen SSP host two years out, and accepting and reviewing proposals for the SSP host in three years!  This all requires an amazing team of people with the ability to simultaneously work hundreds of details, for hundreds of international participants and faculty, in multiple host site countries, with multiple languages, local customs and time zones.  It might not be quite as hard as planning a human mission to Mars…but it's pretty close!

Mr. John Connolly, (on detachment from NASA), brings his 28 years of NASA experience and 22 years as an ISU Faculty member to lead ISU’s Space Studies Program (SSP15). Connolly’s specialties include human and robotic space mission design, human spacecraft design, and space systems engineering.
