The importance of space for sustaining life on Earth cannot be overstated. However, the systems, infrastructure, and operations related to space are facing growing contention and threats. To ensure the continued contribution of space systems to national and economic interests, it is imperative to adopt forward-thinking strategies. With the transition to new geopolitical paradigms, the space enterprise must embrace fresh opportunities and confront challenges in space through a comprehensive and strategic approach.

Program details are subject to change in order to accommodate speakers and ensure a quality event. Final programs will be published October 9th.

The Next Giant Leap: Building Cyber Resilience for the Global Space Industry

This theme will explore the critical importance of cybersecurity in the rapidly advancing commercial space sector. Drawing parallels between the monumental technological advances that propelled humanity to the moon in the late 1960s and the current state of the space industry, this conference aims to shed light on the profound changes we are experiencing and the urgent need for cyber resilience in the space domain.

Just as the Apollo missions represented a seminal moment in human history, today’s technological advancements are rapidly propelling us towards a future where space exploration and commerce will become commonplace. The commercial space sector has witnessed unprecedented growth, with private companies launching satellites, developing space tourism ventures, and even setting their sights on establishing colonies on other celestial bodies. Humanity’s relationship with space has forever changed, and we find ourselves on the cusp of an era where earth-bound limitations may soon become a thing of the past.

However, as we embark on this new chapter of space exploration, it is crucial to recognize that the space domain is not immune to the threat of cyberattacks. We must confront the reality that cyberspace is the newest warfighter realm, where state and non-state actors can exploit vulnerabilities to disrupt or sabotage critical space infrastructure. The consequences of a cyberattack on space systems could be catastrophic, affecting not only national security but also economic stability, public safety, and the continuity of vital services that rely on satellite communications.

To ensure the sustainable development of the space industry, we must prioritize cyber resilience. Building on the lessons learned from past endeavors, this summit will provide a platform for experts, industry leaders, and cybersecurity professionals to share insights, best practices, and innovative solutions to safeguard our space assets. By fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange, we can develop robust cybersecurity frameworks and technologies that will fortify the space domain against emerging threats. It is our collective responsibility to address the urgent need for cyber resilience in the global space industry. Together, we can ensure that humanity’s journey beyond Earth is characterized by progress, safety, and the responsible exploration of the cosmos.

This might include parks, open fields, or even remote areas near Colorado Springs.

The star party typically features a range of engaging activities, including:

Telescope Viewing: CSASTRO members bring their telescopes and invite attendees to take a closer look at various celestial objects. They provide explanations and answer questions about what can be observed, such as planets, star clusters, nebulae, galaxies, and the moon.

Guided Tours: Knowledgeable CSASTRO volunteers lead guided tours of the night sky, pointing out different constellations, stars, and other interesting features. They share fascinating facts and stories about the objects visible that night, making the experience both educational and entertaining.

Astrophotography Tips: Many enthusiasts are interested in capturing stunning images of the night sky. CSASTRO provides astrophotography tips and guidance, explaining how to set up cameras, adjust settings, and capture beautiful images of celestial objects. They may also showcase examples of astrophotography work to inspire and educate participants.

Throughout the event, CSASTRO members are readily available to answer questions, share their knowledge, and offer advice to ensure everyone has a rewarding experience. They foster a warm and inclusive environment, encouraging interaction and building a sense of community among astronomy enthusiasts.

Please note that Address and Parking instructions will be provided to all attendees in October.
