The vision behind the first Asgardia Space Science and Investment Congress is to bring 250 people together from academia, aerospace industry, as well as investors, who are eager to shape the future for living in space. The time has come to create space environments besides the ISS where humans can live for extended periods. The congress will focus on the science and technology required to support these first permanent space habitats, including:
Other topics include life support systems, space tourism, energy harvesting, recycling, human performance, commercial space transportation, space physiology, new materials, space architecture, counter measures, astrobiology, water and oxygen supply, space debris, space weather.
ASIC offers a unique new forum to bring together experts and scientists from multiple disciplines, from all space agencies, universities and industries worldwide, to address these challenges as we look towards the future of humanity. The congress is for everyone who is curious about human spaceflight and paving the road towards permanent space inhabitation. The programme will include topic-led sessions with top level key-note lectures, panel discussions, and individual lectures/presentations. There will also be poster areas in which PhD students and others are encouraged to present their work.
The registration fee grants you participation to all scientific sessions during the three days of the congress, food and drinks during the breaks as well as the Gala Dinner. Congress participants also receive special accommodation deals.
