Track: Living in Space

We believe that Living in Space is not only humankind's most worthy cause, but it will be the vehicle that ensures our long-term survival. International cooperation, advanced science and technologies and collaborative wisdom can help us attain those goals.   

The Living in Space Track includes presentations from a variety of different disciplines ranging from philosophy to exotic propulsion systems. This year, topics that have already been scheduled include: a synopsis of the latest research work conducted by the MarsCrew134 at the Mars Desert Research Station, ISS resource utilization, black hole propulsion systems, and asteroid mining. In addition, presentations will be given in the psychological and philosophical domains.  Science fiction authors will discuss the realities of what living in space will be like. Several speakers associated with Kepler Space Institute will present. In 2012, the Living in Space ISDC Track developed an association with the Journal of Space Philosophy. Several authors who have contributed to the journal will present this year. The journal can be found at https://bobkrone.com/node/120
