Ascension, our annual space conference, brings together students, researchers, and industry professionals over a 3-day event. The conference attempts to close the gap between industry and students by creating a place for students to find their own place in Canada’s space industry. Ascension has been held annually since 2015, with the most recent event held at the University of Alberta. Ascension 2020 will be held at McMaster University on February 28 – March 1, 2020. Ascension 2020 is open to the public. This year’s theme is “Innovating Space: The Entrepreneurial Mission” to highlight the importance of the role private industry and small businesses play to advance innovation and development within the Canadian space sector. Over the course of the conference we will discuss existing and advancing technologies, hear from individuals who have started space companies, and discuss what current companies are doing to advance the industry.
