The first Asgardia Science and Investment Congress will take place in Bruges, Belgium, June 18 to June 20. The event focuses on the colonization of the Moon
Man first set foot on the lunar surface 50 years ago; the time has come to prepare for another visit, this time, with the prospect of staying.
The first Asgardian Science and Investment Congress will focus on three topics: procreation in space, cosmic radiation, and artificial and Moon gravity.
The ultimate goal of permanent space habitation would be the ability to continue the human life cycle off planet, hence giving birth to a child in space. But hereto, numerous problems have to be tackled. Solving these issues, related to physiology, radiation, artificial or reduced gravity, as well as habitat-related problems and life support systems pushes the human ingenuity and creativity.
During this congress, experts and scientists from different disciplines are invited to build an up-to-date roadmap that paves the way to achieving these distant goals.
Humans are born to explore. On the Earth, we have been up virtually every hill, and sailed every sea and ocean. We know that we must go beyond that.
Our keynote speakers will share their expertise on radiation, construction in complex environments, life support systems, etc. We are pleased to announce that two astronauts with months of experience on board the ISS will be among them: Frank De Winne (ESA, Belgium - Astronaut and Head of EAC) and Bob Thirsk (University of Calgary, Canada - Astronaut, engineer and MD).
A number of prominent scientists will participate in the Congress, including Laurence Young (MIT, USA - Neurosensory systems and artificial gravity), John Charles, (NASA (retired) Life scientist), and Marco Durante (Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany - Director of biophysics depth and radiation expert).
The first Asgardian Science and Investment Congress welcomes the submission of abstracts on the official site of the Event
