The International Astronautical Federation (IAF) is pleased to announce the opening of the call for nominations for the 2015 Young Space Leaders (YSL) Recognition Programme.

YSL awards are made to students or young professionals between the ages of 21 to 35 years who contribute to astronautics through their academic or professional activities, reach out to other young people and to their community to share knowledge and experience, and contribute to the work of IAF committees or volunteer in support of other Federation activities.  (Note:  Attendance at International Astronautical Congreess does not in itself qualify.)

The detailed nomination process is available here, and more information about the YSL Programme can be found here.  Deadline is February 13, 2015.

The American Astronautical Society and its members are profoundly saddened by the loss of Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShip Two and one of its pilots. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the injured pilot, to the families affected by this tragedy, and to the Virgin Galactic team.  While risk can never be totally eliminated from the quest to make spaceflight more accessible, this noble endeavor will continue and, ultimately, succeed.
