SPACEBAR

At the onset of the COVID-19 Pandemic, AstroAgency stepped up to provide
the thriving UK space community with an accessible forum for networking
and knowledge sharing. As ‘in-person’ industry events were cancelled and
adopted typically broadcasted “listen-in” formats, SpaceBar offered an
informal, interactive alternative, which has since hosted some of the
biggest names – and brains – from the sector.

 

With sessions held over Zoom, all participants are encouraged to join in
discussions led by experts with a panel of volunteers. The exciting topics
range from sustainability, the latest launches, sustainability, and STEM, through to life in
space , AI, and favourite science fiction movies and books. With this
boundary-breaking model, AstroAgency has fostered a vibrant community
of hundreds, from what could have otherwise been a moment of retreat for
the industry.

 

Since its launch in April 2020, AstroAgency’s SpaceBar has received award
nominations, started its own merchandise line with proceeds going to
geospatial charity OceanMind and boasts large numbers of participants,
peaking at well over 300 when British Astronaut Tim Peake, Kevin Fong and
the UK Space Agency CEO joined regular hosts Dallas Campbell and Dr.
Suzie Imber for our year anniversary. SpaceBar upholds AstroAgency’s
values of community collaboration, knowledge exchange, responsiveness
and diversity, whilst reinforcing the idea that not all space innovation
needs to be technical!
