Border Sessions 2014 - Wed, 12 Nov 2014

60% of humanity - about 4.3 billion people - cannot use the Internet to access basic information. Outernet covers the entire Earth with a free signal of relevant information, from courseware and news, to disaster updates and language software.

Outernet went live in august 2014. It takes the best content from the web, decided via public vote, and broadcasts it from satellites.To receive content, users can build their own receiver or buy one. The receiver stores the content locally and users can connect to the receiver's wifi signal with any device and view content in any browser. Outernet can broadcast any digital file in any language to anyone, everywhere.

Border Sessions 2014 - Wed, 12 Nov 2014

Date: Wednesday 12 November
Time: 11.00- 12.30
Location: La Gayola Spiegeltent, Lange Voorhout 74, The Hague (in front of Escher Museum)

Before we go into future topics we will shortly preview what can be expected later that day during the Rosetta landing. Which technology, developed more than 10 years ago, enabled Rosetta to orbit and land on a comet today? What type of innovative technology can be expected in the near future, what is the near future state of science, what can we expect from cross-over technology? A panel, led by a moderator, will discuss the above topics through leading examples like; OLFAR a low-frequency distributed radio telescope in space, Outernet: the best of the web available to every human on Earth and ESA’s Clean Space initiative trying to make a greener European space sector by assessing and improving our environmental impact, including our near-Earth environment – meaning looking into solution for space debris and other exciting topics in the space field.

The panel is composed of Rens Waters (SRON), Marc Klein Wolt (S&T), Chris Verhoeven (TU Delft) Jakob Huesing (Rhea for ESA) and Robbert Mica (Outernet).

The programme is in English
