Air & Space Community Conversations

A space for students and faculty interested in the latest news and notes in aerospace to come together and learn about the broader context of the industry

Did you ever look up at the night sky as a kid and dream of becoming an astronaut? Did you imagine exploring the universe or visiting other planets? 

Even if astronaut was just a childhood dream, your talents are still vital to human flight and space exploration! 

Whether you are majoring in business, psychology, economics, physical education, engineering, biology, policy, or anything else Ohio State has to offer, your passions can be used to help us explore the skies.

Join our Air & Space Community Conversations, a student community built to show you the broad range of the industry and prepare you for a profession that moves humanity into the future. Learn how your passions apply to the industries of human flight and space exploration, connect with students with similar interests, and meet incredible guest speakers to help build your professional network!
