Swedish space operations started in 1964, when the first Swedish rocket was launched. A little more than 40 years later, Christer Fuglesang became the first Swedish astronaut to travel into space. Christer, adjunct professor in Space Physics at KTH, is a member of the Association of Space Explorers (ASE) an international nonprofit professional and educational organization of over 395 astronauts and cosmonauts from 36 nations. ASE supports the advancement of space exploration by providing opportunities for communication among space professionals at the international level and seeks to stimulate interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and inspire in students a life-long commitment to educational excellence. Every year members from ASE gather in one country to exchange, spread and create new knowledge. This year the weeklong congress will be held in Sweden.
