Every year the International Astronautical Congress opens with a Head of Agencies plenary. This is a public opportunity for the community to hear from the leaders of the worlds space agencies what their national programs have been doing, what they will do in the future and answer questions from the public. For Canada’s Sylvain Laporte, it was his first opportunity as leader of Canada’s space agency to participate in this plenary.
