Who we are

Who we are

The Outer Space Institute (OSI) is a global network of space experts united in their commitment to highly innovative, transdisciplinary research that addresses grand challenges facing the use and exploration of space. Comprised of physical scientists, social scientists, lawyers, engineers, industry leaders, and policy makers, there is no other body like it anywhere. The transdisciplinary approach enables the OSI to identify challenges, opportunities, and solutions that have been overlooked by other groups. By breaking down barriers that prevent people in different fields from working together, the OSI is able to further challenge assumptions that are often taken for granted in building public policy.

The OSI was co-founded by Aaron Boley, Michael Byers, and David Kendall on a rainy day at UBC.
