The Austrian Space Forum is looking for volunteers!
This year, the World Space Week is under the motto “Exploring Mars. Discovering Earth”. In dozens of countries worldwide, this event marks an annual showcasing of space activities around the globe – Declared by the United Nations in 1999, it encompasses simultaneous events held by space agencies, schools, aerospace companies, planetariums, museums, astronomy clubs, etc. in more than 60 countries. Last years’ World Space Week saw 685 events! The aims are to build the workforce of tomorrow by inspiring students, visibly demonstrating public support for space programs, educating the public and government leaders about space activities, and foster international cooperation in space outreach and education.
The Austrian Space Forum has been asked to manage a dedicated Mission Control Center (MCC) for a series of events ranging from Mars analog rover driving demonstrations to a series of mock-up Extra-Vehicular Activities and even a mission at the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah.
For all this, we need you in Innsbruck and across Austria!
Between 26th of September and 11th of October we are looking for volunteers (also if you are available only for a part of that period) for the following positions:
- Flight planners & operators
- Ground Support & IT
- Remote Science Support
- Public speakers to represent the Austrian Space Forum
- Press and Social Media
Also, the Aouda spacesuits will be operated during the World Space Week, we are also looking into cooperating with many international partners for e.g. MCC-managed remote rover operations, extra-vehicular activities, educational sessions, and lots of telecons into classrooms worldwide.
Travel and lodging has to be self-funded, however, on a case-to-case bases we can arrange for simple private accommodation.
If you are interested, please contact with your contact coordinates and availabilities.
