Recording: #GalacticAccess: The Future of Accessible Design, Mar 10, 2023

”If we can make space accessible, we can make any space accessible.” This is the motto of Mission: AstroAccess (“MAA”), a program dedicated to reinvisioning how we design spacecraft in order to reinvent how we design for everyday life back here on earth. In this session, MAA Ambassadors will discuss their experiences and experiments in zero-gravity while onboard MAA parabolic flights. They will also discuss the future they see for disabled astronauts and disabled people in the space industry as a whole as we look towards designing more accessible space infrastructure.
