Kristof Gazso
Hi, I'm Kristof and I am running for President! My time with SpaceSoc as Technology Officer has been nothing short of amazing. Through organising several talks, including from CEOs of Asteroid Mining Corporation and Deep Space Industries, and through my mission to establish a rocketry branch to the society, I hope I have improved the experiences of our members. I would summarise my vision for SpaceSoc in 3 key points:

Conserve our Culture — My favourite part of the society remains the amazing people from all academic backgrounds who come to our events. I believe maintaining a cordial and family-like atmosphere is essential to keeping our society a haven for the most curious and ambitious space-enthusiasts. Thus, social events will remain a focus.

Think Bigger — We are beginning our transition back to relative normality. As President, I would make sure that we aim high by participating in events in the likes of hackathons, launch viewings, trips, and research competitions. If we don't find events that we like, we will organise them ourselves. Let's get our name out there!

Enhance Marketing — UCL is full of yet undiscovered space-enthusiasts and we should increase our efforts to find them through a first-year rep programme, departmental outreach, and a concentrated effort during the Fresher's Fair. We also have a massive newsletter base and we must leverage it more to increase attendance. I would establish a division specifically for marketing to manage these efforts.
Estelle Janin
Hi! My name is Estelle and I am a 3rd year Astrophysics & Molecular Biology student. I joined the UCL Space Society in my 1st year, as Philosophy Officer, and have seen it grow and develop for 3 years now, giving me the perspective, experience and skills to become a great President next year. Members of the Society may know me for my passion and excitement for every space-related topic, my numerous messages on the groupchat, the few talks I gave or the Fridays’ Socials that I organize... as President, they will also discover the ambition and innovation that I have for this society and its members – many of whom have become great friends.

Plans for next year include:

- Introduce “Space Career” events and resources
- Develop a networking system both between members and with professionals
- Gain feedback from our members to better tailor our events
- Simplify the committee application process
- Guarantee more balance between the different branches of the society
- Enhance the visibility of the society by entering more competitions
- Build more connections with ESA and UKSEDS
- Reinforce our presence on social media through frequent short articles and videos
- Have a dedicated space for reading lists about different space topics
- Organize weekly socials, high-profile academic events, debates, discussions, a space pub-quiz, and more!

Lastly, my ongoing research projects at NASA will undoubtedly bring useful insights and connections.
