U.S. astronaut Scott Edward Parazynski is going to visit the Czech Republic in late August. He was involved in five missions onboard the U.S. space shuttle and seven times stepped into outer space. In Prague he will present his experience at two public lectures that will be held on Monday, August 24 in the building of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
Atlas 5 rocket with mini space shuttle X-37B and ten cubes was lainched from the Florida spaceport Cape Canaveral in May 20, 2015. There are transponders on satellites PSat A and BRICSat-P that were developed, constructed and tested in the Experimental Satellites Labratory at Brno University of Technology.
Global Symposium and Workshop of ITU Radiocommunication Sector will be held on 2-4 March 2015 in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague. Focus will be put on the issues associated with the implementation and regulation of radiocommunication networks using small satellites.
The Czech Space Office (CSO) and the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) organise Humans in Space Symposium which is going to take place from June 29 to July 3, 2015. Space medicine, ensuring of living conditions, including necessary and analog simulation studies on Earth are going to be the main topics of the conference.
Czech Space Office has successfully completed its participation at the 65th International Astronautical Congress in Toronto. The time at the Cogress the CSO devoted to promoting Czech aerospace. CSO has also been involved in the activities of the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) of which the CSO director serves as vicepresident.
The last day, the Congress was open to public and the program was also attended by many children and their teachers. The General Assembly has chosen venue of IAC Congress in 2017, the Australian Adelaide. Jan Kolář, the director of CSO, was re-elected for IAF Vice president and we evaluate the Toronto Congress more or less positively.
The fourth day of the Congress was very busy due to negotiations with the IAF and affiliates and discussions carried out during the Congress exhibition. As in previous days, the topic of small satellites came up several times, because its realization and launch today provide dozens of private companies and universities.
