The International Astronaut Event is a long-standing highlight in ISU sessions. The objective is to give the program participants and members of the general public a direct opportunity to ask a broad range of questions to a number of astronauts in an interactive mode. The international astronaut panel, composed of astronauts from different organisations, provides varying insights and opinions, especially comparing intensive, short duration flights with long-duration stays on board space stations (such as MIR and ISS).

The panel will be moderated by Dr Michael Simpson, Executive Director of the Secure World Foundation, and will feature NASA Astronaut Dr Andy Thomas of the Australia and European Space Agency and Astronaut Mr Paolo Nespoli of Italy.
