DARPA is hosting the 100 Year Starship Symposium in Orlando from Sept. 30th – Oct. 2nd. It looks to be a fascinating three days of lectures and panels. The agenda covers a wide range of topics, including propulsion systems, starship designs, biological/crew survival, economics, ethical considerations, and religious implications. There is also a film presentation, a panel of sci-fi authors, and Spider Robinson’s “Callahan’s Crosstime Saloon” – which seems like an excuse to drink and tell stories.
And did I mention that this is all free?
It sounds like a great weekend. I wish I could go.
