In early January 2007, Space Generation Advisory Council put out a call for what the youth of today thought would be the key events of the next 50 years in space activities. This first call attracted 275 youth visionaries from all over the world to input to what new events would create the next giant leap for mankind. Is it space tourism, is it a lunar base that shall really be able to help us conquer the space frontier, or is a human landing on Mars that YOU wish to see in the coming 5, 10, 20 or 50 years?

Following this first success, the wide range of ideas has now been studied by collaborative work between fellow youth space advocates representing the Space Generation and the distilled ideas have led to some key questions as to what are the priorities and how these cornerstone events can be realized for benefiting the human race. You can help us take this input to the world leaders!

All applicants 29 or under are invited to give further input regarding key events and space activities via a simple Round 2 survey can be found at the SGAC website (

Deadline for receiving completed entries for Round 2 is 1st of April 2007. This input will be captured in a publication tentatively titled: "Looking Back, Looking Forward: The Next Generation's 50-Year Vision for Space" and presented to prominent leaders at a planning workshop, held on 14 April 2007, in conjunction with a conference titled, "The Future of Space Exploration: Solutions to Earthly Problems?" at the Boston University in USA.

Help us create the future!
