Space Horizons 2020

Space Horizons 2020

February 8, 2020
11:15am — 12:00pm ET

Space Horizons is an annual conference that is dedicated to exploring revolutionary space technologies shaping the future of the industry.

Space has done the work of astrophysics, of motivating and teaching students, of navigating us around the globe and of making our lives safer and more secure.

Today, the world is facing existential challenges, and Space must rise to these new challenges.

How can we save Earth by going to space?

On February 8 at Brown University, experts in climate, remote sensing, asteroid threats, space solar power, and other Earth-saving challenges will lead interactive round table discussions with interested professionals and students to explore problems and potential solutions.

SH 2020 will not be PowerPointed to an audience seated in the dark. In discussion groups led by experts, you will learn and help architect technologies, policies, and practices for space to meet our most important challenge—the survival of Earth.

SH 2020 will be held in conjunction with the third annual Ivy Space Coalition Conference. The Ivy Space Coalition (ISC) is an organization that represents a large constituency of space-related organizations spanning across the entire Ivy League. The aim of the ISC is to connect students and organizations across the Ivy League that have an interest in aerospace engineering, space exploration, and improved space technology, thereby fostering a greater sense of space community through shared connections, conversations, and experiences. Not only do members have the unique opportunity to individually benefit from one another’s knowledge in expanding their respective clubs and project teams, but they also have the chance to revolutionize the fast-growing space community collectively.
