The Agencia Espacial Mexicana (AEM English: Mexican Space Agency) is the national space agency of Mexico. The dream for the creation of a National Space Agency was started in 1990s when SEM (Mexican Space Society), a non-profit organization, proposed for the establishment of space agency. Thus, after 30 years AEM was established by the President Felipe Calderón in July 2010. The missions of AEM are to increase scientific space activities, development of spatial technologies and improvement of skills and abilities of human resources.
