March 2016

Emerging Scientific, Technological, and Industrial Challenges and Opportunities for the Mexican Space Agency

March 03, 2016
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Scoates Hall, Room 208

The Agencia Espacial Mexicana, (AEM) Mexico’s space agency, was created in 2010 to promote academic and industrial activity in Mexico related to space sciences and to contribute to the country’s scientific, technological, industrial and economic development. One of its priorities is to explore the use of satellite technology to provide early warning to the population in the event of natural disasters, to track the effects of global warming, and to predict the spread of diseases, among others.
