    A space engineering initiative based in Halifax wants to bring young people from diverse backgrounds into the space industry. The program was recently awarded half a million dollars in funding and organizers plan to expand it. 

    CEO of GALAXIA Mission Systems and co-founder of the free ATLAS program, Arad Gharagozli said “I would love to see our program go national. We can bring this model and actually apply it to other provinces throughout the country, … We already see great things coming out of right here in the Atlantic provinces.”

    The ATLAS program which stands for Atlantic Academy of Space, is a two week satellite design program co-founded by Dalhousie University. The program strives to get more kids involved in space and bridge the gap in terms of lack of women, black and indigenous people in the space industry.
