Border Sessions 2014 - Wed, 12 Nov 2014

Join us at the SpaceNed meetup, where experts will give their view on space technology's future.
Date: Wednesday 12 November
Time: 11.00- 12.30
Location: La Gayola Spiegeltent, Lange Voorhout 74, The Hague (in front of Escher Museum)
Entrance: register for this event using the form below. A Border Sessions ticket is not required for this event.

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
