Going Beyond

These are exciting times in the space sector. Today’s greatest breakthroughs in space discoveries, technological innovations, and investments are happening; and they are increasing exponentially in numbers. A big factor contributing to these pivotal efforts is the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of space research, and an expanding international interest in space. It is crucial that we, as Canadians and world citizens, embark upon efforts for space endeavors and join forces to make the impossible, possible.
The theme of the 2019 Montreal Space Symposium, "Going Beyond", illustrates our vision that greater goals beyond the realm of possibility can be achieved with the fusion of expertise from all disciplines. This is also a continuation of our vision for a united space program inclusive of all people, whether in government, academia, or the general public. As we set forward in this historical era of space exploration, enthusiasts of all disciplines should have important roles to play, unique perspectives to share, and revolutionary discoveries to contribute. There is a promising future awaiting us in space, one we can achieve by transcending our area of expertise towards greater advancement. Together, let's go beyond and explore space.

The Montreal Student Space Associations

The committee is comprised of student aerospace associations across various Québec universities, such as Concordia University, McGill University, Université de Montréal, Polytechnique Montréal, École de Technologie Supérieure, and Université de Sherbrooke. The MSSA also acts as the Montreal chapter for the Canadian Space Society.
We united under the common goal of promoting space related discussions and awareness to the public. Our mission is threefold:
  • To advocate for student’s importance within the space industry
  • To inform students about the possibilities associated with space
  • To promote Montreal as a widely recognized space hub.
