The 2022 International Space Station Research and Development Conference (ISSRDC) showcased how the space station continues to provide a valuable platform for research and technology development that improves life on Earth and enables a robust and sustainable market in low Earth orbit.
Held July 25-28 in Washington, D.C., ISSRDC brought together leaders from the commercial sector, U.S. government agencies, and academic communities to foster innovation and discovery onboard the International Space Station (ISS).
The conference was hosted by the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space, Inc., manager of the ISS National Laboratory; NASA; and the American Astronautical Society (AAS). The theme of the ISSRDC 2022 was a “Decade of Results.” After 20 years of continuous human presence on the ISS, the orbiting laboratory has entered a new era, transitioning from a decade of utilization to a decade of results that benefit humanity and bring value to our nation.
In this series of posts, we revisit some of the panels, keynotes, and activities that took place throughout the conference. We invite you to explore these insights and use the information to fuel your inspiration and participation in next year’s conference, which will be held in Seattle, July 31-August 3, 2023.
