Caught in a spotlight

Ever since its existence, humanity has called one planet “home”: Earth. But with the advancements in technology and other global developments, the boarders which human life has reached are ever expanding. Even though the percentage of people that have passed the Kármán line is less than 0.00005%, we may see this number rising soon. This raises a lot of questions, and presents numerous technical challenges to the aerospace industry.

The VSV Symposium “Engineering for Human Life in Space” will address and discuss, among others, the challenges, perspectives, and predictions that arise when placing human life in space.  

The VSV Symposium is an annual event organised by the VSV ‘Leonardo da Vinci’, the society of Aerospace Engineering students at the Delft University of Technology. Organised by students for students, the Symposium aims to inspire a new generation of engineers by inviting a number of professionals in the field of aerospace engineering, as well as related fields, to shed light on a currently relevant theme. This year’s Symposium is organised by the 38th Space Department of the VSV, and will feature several presentations, two panel discussions, and a number of workshops and other networking opportunities for students interested in the space industry.
