Space Future has been on something of a hiatus of late. With the concept of Space Tourism steadily increasing in acceptance, and the advances of commercial space, much of our purpose could be said to be achieved. But this industry is still nascent, and there's much to do. So...watch this space.
TEDx lecture series about space, starting this month
The TED Conference lecture series includes anecdotes and stories from the movers and shakers of the world, such as
Richard Branson and Benoit Mandelbrot, as well as other people with tales to tell. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design, but TED has come to mean “ideas worth spreading.”
Attending any of the several space conferences is like standing atop an apex of time. Face this way, and you can look back at where we were, and what has happened since the last time we looked. Take a quarter turn, see and hear where we are now and the people making news. Take another quarter turn, and you are facing the future—what is yet to be done, who is going to do it, and how.
Creating the future, or living in the past? That is the theme of NewSpace2008, the conference being produced by Space Frontier Foundation (SFF) on July 17-19, 2008 in Crystal City, Virginia (just outside Washington, D.C.), at The Doubletree Hotel.
The International Astronautical Academy (IAA), the research arm of the
International Astronautical Federation (
IAF), is holding its first conference on private human space flight from May 28-30, 2008, in Arcachon, Bordeaux, France.
The 3rd annual Space Medicine Conference will be taking place on 30 September and 1 October 2006 in the UK National Space Centre in Leicester. Topics will include the medical implications of space tourism and surgical care in space.
