Space Gene – a new initiative for space enthusiasts

Space Gene is a student initiative at FAU that aims at encouraging students and public to participate in Space Tech. Our goal is to democratize space exploration, travel, and colonization.
We welcome students from diverse backgrounds, who are interested in space and want to support the development of space technologies and the business ecosystem. Through our projects and events, we aim at popularizing space tech and helping students to find job opportunities in this area, create their own projects and startups, exchange insights and experience, and just have fun! Space is in our genes, therefore we are here to make your dreams about space come true!
