December 13, 2018, an extraordinary event took place right in the heart of Russian Federation - the open Voyager Space Outreach (VSO) lecture at one of the oldest and finest Russian universities - The University of Kazan or as it is most commonly known: Kazan Federal University.
The lecture on the history of the Space Exploration and the perspectives of the Space industry nowadays was delivered by the Voyager Space Outreach Board Member Ilya Vadimovich Kursenko who is also volunteering as one of the 2019 New York Academy of Sciences Ambassadors. With over 52 attendees the lecture has gathered both the current and the former students, the professionals of scientific and business fields as well as the general public that has expressed a broad interest in learning more about space.
The idea of such a lecture came from the founder of Voyager Space Outreach Mansidak Singh who has come up with the idea to advocate for the Space education. Even though Singh is currently based in the Republic of India, his great initiative has stretched over the oceans attracting many supporters across the globe. With help of the whole team, VSO was able to make this event a huge success.
All attendees of the lecture Kazan have shared positive feedback about the event and look forward to more events of this kind.
