Launchpad Talks

LaunchPad talks are like ‘TED-talks’ for space, and consist of brief 7-minute, high-level and engaging talks on novel and innovative work in space exploration and development today, and are geared towards a general space audience. A fixture of ISDC since 2015, the LaunchPad has attracted an impressive array of speakers and projects in previous years, from astronauts to entrepreneurs to moonshot ideas. Come check it out Saturday, May 27th, from 1000-1200.
