Starship Century event

http://imagination.ucsd.edu/starship/#overview

May 21 - 22, UC San Diego, Qualcomm Institute, Atkinson Hall Auditorium

Is this the century we begin to build starships?

Why go to the Stars?

Can we?

Should We?



  • Scientists address the challenges and opportunities for our long‐term future in space, with possibilities envisioned by: Freeman Dyson, Paul Davies, Peter Schwartz, John Cramer and Robert Zubrin.
  • Science fiction authors Neal Stephenson, Allen Steele, Joe Haldeman, Gregory Benford, Geoffrey Landis and David Brin discuss the implications that these trajectories of exploration might have upon our development as individuals and as a civilization.
Lots of big names. Looks like a real dream event for a lot of science and scifi fans.
