Space research on ScienceOpen

The International Day of Human Space Flight is observed annually on April 12th and commemorates the first human space flight by Soviet Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. This day celebrates the remarkable achievements of human space exploration, emphasizes the vital role of space science and technology in fostering innovation, as well as reaffirms the importance of utilizing outer space for peaceful endeavours and for addressing global challenges on Earth. 

In anticipation of the International Day of Human Space Flight, we wanted to highlight some of the space research available on the ScienceOpen platform. 

AIAA Space Collection 

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) brings together industry, academia, and government to advance engineering and science in aviation, space, and defense. It is the world’s largest technical society dedicated to the global aerospace profession. 

“Space is becoming an essential part of our everyday lives and there are more and more entities getting involved, making space more congested and complex, requiring new rules and norms so that all participants can coexist and prosper.”


The AIAA Space Collection on the ScienceOpen discovery platform showcases a wide array of aerospace-related research published by the Institute. This collection provides a comprehensive and extensive source of space travel science and technology research, increasing the reach and impact of AIAA’s novel research and contributing to AIAA’s mission of helping aerospace professionals and their organizations succeed.
