  13. 13. Galaxy Education ResourcesInternational Space University: Graduate-level training to future leaders of the emerging global space community at locations around the world. - Walter Peeters, PresidentThe Planetary Society: Inspires and involves the worlds public in space exploration through advocacy, projects, and education. - Bill Nye, Executive DirectorSETI: Mission of the SETI Institute is to explore, understand and explain the origin, nature and prevalence of life in the universe - Seth Shostak, Senior AstronomerSpace Generation Advisory Council: Represents students and young space professionals to the United Nations, States, and space agencies. - Michael Brett / Catherine Doldirina, Co-ChairpersonStudents for the Exploration and Development of Space: Dedicated to expanding the role of human exploration through education. - Daniel Pastuf, Chair
  14. 14. Galaxy Education ResourcesChallenger Center: Learning Center Network gives students hands-on experience in science, engineering, research and space missions.- June Scobee Rodgers, Founding Director and ChairmanGalaxy Zoo: ‘Citizen Science’ online astronomy project that invites members of the public to assist in classifying over a million galaxies.- Chris Lintott, Dan Andreescu, Kate Land, etc.UCLA Galactic Center Group: Leading Galactic Center research group, dedicated to researching the innermost regions of the Milky Way.- Andrea Ghez, Principal InvestigatorTeachers in Space, Space Frontier Foundation: Giving teachers the opportunity to experience space firsthand via NewSpace companies.- Edward Wright, Project ManagerFederation of Galaxy Explorers: Seeks to inspire and educate kids in space related science and engineering, including Moon Base One Initiative.- Nicholas Eftimiades, Founder / Chairperson of the Board
  15. 15. Why Galaxy Education, Consciousness & Awareness Are Important for the 21st Century: General Education – for primary, secondary higher, and highest education: Knowledge, understanding of humanity’s place in the Universe – our Milky Way Galaxy occupies a mid-position domain between Solar System finiteness and Cosmos infinity Higher Education: Astrophysics / Astronomy – Galaxy studies internationally are of increasing interest and value; study of our local stellar neighborhood for familiarity; center / central 10 parsecs with supermassive black hole is most dynamic region of Milky Way History of Human Civilization / Archaeoastronomy NASA, World Space Agencies – 21st Century Program and Policy Development Advance through Galaxy understanding Galacticity – may be as important for the 21st Century, as is Relativity to 20th
