What is Space Spectra?
Space Spectra is inspired by the definition of spectrum:
1. an array of entities, as light waves or particles, ordered in accordance with the magnitudes of a common physical property, as a wavelength or mass: often the band of colours when sunlight is passed through a prism, comprising red, orange, yellow, green, blue indigo and violet.
2. a broad range of varied but related ideas or objects, the individual features of which tend to overlap so as to for a continuous series or sequence.
Often university students who want to pursue space careers feel stuck at the very first step: "Where do we start?"
This is because an old-fashioned establishment of stereotypes and educational patterns have ingrained the beliefs that only 9-to-5 engineering jobs will guarantee access to the Space Industry. Showcasing the very wide spectrum of roles and possibilities within the Space Sector is then key to allow them to step confidently into their Outer-Space professional life.
Space Spectra was curated to help those who wish to move into the space sector gain a greater understanding of how to move forward with their career.
