The 67th International Astronautical Congress was held last week in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. Attendance was reported to be over 5,200 including more than 2,000 elementary and secondary students. The annual IAC is the premier event that brings together the global space community to exchange information, identify opportunities for collaboration, and build relationships.

Similar to IAC 2014 hosted by CASI in Toronto, the program consisted of a mix of plenary panels, keynote lectures, technical presentations and an abundance of networking opportunities. If one is to judge from the size of the audience, the highlight of the Congress was the presentation by Elon Musk, CEO and Founder of SpaceX about the plans he has for the colonization of Mars.
