Canada in Space: NASA’s Enduring Partner


Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex celebrates 50 years of Canada in Space with the exhibit Canada in Space: NASA’s Enduring Partner.

The exhibit, which opened in July, will be officially launched September 4th with the visit of Canadian astronaut Dr. Dave Williams, O.C., who was recently awarded the Order of Canada in recognition of his outstanding achievements in science. Consul General Louise Leger will host a reception with partners NASA/Kennedy Space Center and the Florida Space Institute at the University of Central Florida, highlighting the tremendous cooperation between Canada and the United States in space technology, space exploration and aerospace.

On September 5, 2013, the Florida Space Institute at the University of Central Florida hosts SpaceTech 1.0, a conference bringing together industry leaders in space technology, life sciences, nanotechnology and robotics, featuring Dr. Dave Williams as the keynote speaker. The Consulate General of Canada is a proud sponsor of this unique event, which highlights Canada’s stature as a global leader in space and aerospace technologies and research.

Canada in Space: NASA’s Enduring Partner at Kennedy Space Centre continues until 2014 in the IMAX Hall. Don’t forget to check out the Canadarm and other Canadian technology in the Atlantis exhibit too!  

The photo exhibit was assembled and curated by the Canadian Space Agency and the Canadian Embassy in Washington D.C., in partnership with the Canadian Air & Space Museum, Telesat and MDA Corporation.
