The International Astronautical Federation is pleased to announce that for the first time in IAC history, all Plenary Events as well as the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 67th International Astronautical Congress to be held from 26 – 30 September 2016 in Guadalajara, Mexico, will be live broadcasted.One of the main components of this year´s IAC is telecommunications and, as one of the great benefits of this technology, an unprecedented number of people will be able to have access to the state-of-theart knowledge shared on this premier event.
The IAC 2016, among other things, is known as “The Olympic Games of Space” because of its academic and industry-oriented events that bring together the most important minds of the globe in the field, and in which Mexico will have exceptional networking opportunities.
In the past century, the development of space issues was mostly concentrated in the countries with the strongest economies but, with the aid of current information and telecommunication technologies, today, we are witnessing a democratization of knowledge.
This is also expressed in the theme of the upcoming event by which Mexico, a country with a strong global responsibility, adds up to the international space community endeavor in “Making Space Accessible and Affordable to all Countries”.
