Join the Space in Context FREE online conference!


Thursday, 26 January 2023

Join us on the 26th January 2023 for Space Science in Context (SSiC): a FREE online conference that unpacks the social dimensions of outer space. We have three panels of invited speakers who will be live in conversation - on Space and the Environment; Space, Technology and Dual-Use; and Labour and Space - packed with wonderful speakers, and two poster sessions of contributions from around the world on how space interacts with local social contexts. 

Our schedule, programme and more information about SSiC is available online and from Thursday 19th January the prerecorded talks and posters are available online to registrants. 

Register for the conference and gain access to our pre-recorded content and the live panels, for free, here:

We will be providing English-language CART for the three speaker panels and one poster room in each session, with auto-captioning available for the poster sessions. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide full CART or live translation services this year due to budgetary restrictions but hope to in future. Further, we require all attendees, invited speakers, and poster presenters to comply with our accessibility statement and code of conduct. If you would like more information about accessibility, including how to use Zoom's accessibility features, or safety please reach out to us at

Space Science in Context 2023 is only possible thanks to the financial support of the Royal Astronomical Society’s Meeting Grant; and the European Association of Science and Technology Studies EASST Fund. SSiC is and will always be free to attend. If you would like to donate to support SSiC and our mission to pay speakers and build accessible, interdisciplinary platforms, please consider buying us a Ko-Fi!
