 I don't see the Mars Society convention listed. Paul Wooster from SpaceX will be one of a fairly interesting list of speakers and topics.

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Here's hoping he doesn't just repeat the IAC 2017 talk, like he did the last two times he presented at conferences.

Human spaceflight is basically just LARPing now.

Hi, everyone.

Wanted to make sure the upcoming American Astronautical Society's 2018 von Braun Symposium was on everybody's radar.

Full information is on the website (http://bit.ly/2wxO7Jr), but here are some highlights:

The symposium takes place October 23-25 at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and registration is open, but we're getting close to capacity.
 
Featured speakers include:
- Jim Bridenstine, NASA Administrator
- Josh Brost, SpaceX
- John Elbon, United Launch Alliance
- Eileen Collins, Astronaut (Ret.), Colonel, USAF (Ret.)
- Mary Lynne Dittmar, Coalition for Deep Space Exploration
- Mike Griffin, U.S. Department of Defense
- Jim Reuter, NASA Headquarters
- Harrison Schmitt, Apollo 17 Astronaut (Ret.), U.S. Senator (Ret.)
- Jody Singer, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center
- Julie Van Kleeck, Aerojet Rocketdyne
- Bobby Watkins, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center
- Vanessa E. Wyche, NASA Johnson Space Center
And many others.

The Wernher von Braun Memorial Symposium features panel discussions and guest speakers reflecting government, industry, academia, business and international perspectives on space exploration. The Symposium is organized by AAS in conjunction with The University of Alabama in Huntsville and the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center.

Thanks!

JW

This is a talk by Gen. Hyten at the Space Symposium.  It's about life and the space industry in general, not really focusing on current development programs, but when he talks at the end about how to move forward with our future development I couldn't help thinking that he perfectly summarized the difference between how companies like SpaceX do development as opposed to the more mature/bureaucratic organizations.

N° 3–2019: CALL FOR MEDIA: TAKING THE PULSE OF OUR PLANET FROM SPACE

16 April 2019

ESA invites media representatives to join the Living Planet Symposium, the biggest Earth observation conference in the world, to hear first-hand from scientists about recent environmental discoveries and the latest hard facts on climate change – don’t miss this exciting opportunity.

The event will be held on 13–17 May at the Milan Convention Centre in Italy. It offers a unique opportunity to talk directly to some of the most eminent scientists in the field of Earth science and learn how state-of-the-art satellites and novel measuring techniques from space are taking the pulse of our planet.

The week is packed with sessions and talks about observing Earth from space. Attendees will see the latest results from research into different aspects of our planet, from melting ice to desertification and warming oceans, and how human activity is affecting Earth’s natural processes.

There will be an emphasis on how information from space is critical for international bodies assessing climate change and implementing strategies to address societal issues, such as air pollution, food and water security, sea-level rise and disaster management, for example.

While novel space technologies and scientific discoveries form the heart of the event, the focus is also very much on how Earth observation is being used increasingly to benefit everyday life, particularly through Europe’s Copernicus programme. Precision agriculture practices, safe marine operations, weather forecasting and urban planning, for example, all rely on data from space.

New satellite technologies, the end-to-end chain of providing value-added information to a variety of users, along with emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, are also leading to new opportunities for business.

There is also a dedicated area for primary and secondary school children, where students will be carrying out experiments, such as taking measurements of air pollution and learning more about the planet and climate change.

Programme

Monday 13 May

09:30–11:50:       Opening session – includes addresses by Italian ministers, senior ESA officials, heads of EU Copernicus and Eumetsat, along with discussions with science advisors and EU research and innovation officials.

12:00–13:00:      Press conference

Monday 13 May to Friday 17 May

Following the opening, parallel sessions throughout the week will cover all facets of Earth observation, such as monitoring greenhouse gases, climate change, space weather, forest health, space and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, international collaboration, commercial applications, New Space and future aims.

For example, on Monday afternoon there are sessions on biodiversity, on Tuesday air pollution and ocean currents, on Wednesday agriculture and coastal waters, Thursday brings natural hazards into focus and Friday commercial opportunities

Several topics, such as the cryosphere and oceans, will be discussed in dedicated rooms throughout the week.

The full programme is available at the Living Planet Symposium website.
