Our event was a great success! Please stay tuned for photos and videos!
Leading visionaries, space scientists, NASA astronauts and entrepreneurs from around the globe joined together on 21-22 April for a symposium that celebrated the 60-year anniversary of the launch of Sputnik 1 and the beginning of the space age. Colleagues from various universities, aerospace companies and, most importantly, students throughout Massachusetts networked and discussed what the next decade of space will bring.
