Welcome to Space Matters!
The future of innovation and exploration depends on developing the minds and imaginations of the next generation of thinkers, researchers and space pioneers. Here at Space Matters we believe that every Canadian should have access to a rich variety of learning opportunities. The goal of Space Matters is to raise awareness of the importance of space to Canadians and how it touches on nearly every aspect of their daily lives. From Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and satellite communications to weather forecasting and monitoring the health of crops, the standard of living we currently enjoy is fundamentally dependent on satellites and space technologies. In parallel, the exploration of space drives innovation and pushes what we thought was possible to new limits, while at the same time addressing some of the biggest scientific questions of our time – such as are we alone in the universe?
Through Space Matters we seek to connect Canadians from coast to coast who are interested in space and to use space to ignite interest and motivate young minds to study science and engineering and to pursue careers in these fields.
