New Worlds Space Conference in ATX
If you missed SpaceATX earlier this month, then you have another wonderful opportunity to explore the wonders of interplanetary travel at the New Worlds Space Settlement Conference. This event runs November 15–16 at the Bullock Texas State History Museum (1800 Congress Ave).
The New Worlds Space Settlement Conference is presented by the Earthlight Foundation. This organization is committed to enabling human beings to live and thrive in space, to identifying and developing the technologies and approaches needed to harvest space resources and using those resources to build new industries, companies and communities that will open the frontier, be it on the Moon, Mars or the Free Space between worlds.
Speakers at the 2019 New Worlds Space Settlement Conference include Dr. Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin (Astronaut), Cas Anvar (Co-Star Amazon’s “The Expanse”), Barbara Belvisi (Interstellar Lab), William “Whurley” Hurley (StrangeWorks), Dr. Namrata Goswami (Futures Laboratory), Loretta Hidalgo Whitesides (Virgin Galactic), Kelly Larson (Aquarian Devices), Thomas Markusic (Firefly Aerospace), Ingrid Vanderveldt (EBW2020), and Khaki Rodway (Bradford Space).
