“We are on the verge of launching a new chapter in space exploration, the personal spaceflight era. The first people that will walk on Mars or mine asteroids are in school right now. As our newly created industry continues to evolve, we must ensure that we strongly support the educational and leadership development of our best dreamers, our youth. The Space Generation cultivates young space professionals who are dedicated to making a difference, while challenging their limits and broadening their horizons. To the Space Generation I say the following: You are the leaders of humanity’s movement into space. Take risk, go for your dreams, don’t let the past set your pace, let your heart and mind be your guide.”
