The Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS) will be an exhibitor at this year’s Space Tech Expo at booth #8044. Visitors will be able to see the latest and greatest of what SEDS and its chapters have been up to, including its annual High Power Rocketry Competition. Attendees can also see XCOR’s Lynx spaceplane at the Expo’s Space Experience Park, aboard which they can book a flight through Moonandback Travel with the SEDS referral code (See release and more information at http://new.seds.org/2013/05/moonandback-travel-offering-off-world-excursions-benefiting-seds/).
SEDS is the world’s only independent, fully student-run, nonprofit organization for space advocacy. Founded in 1980 by students frustrated with the stagnation of NASA after Apollo, SEDS has inspired tens of thousands of students to pursue careers in science, engineering, and technology. SEDS supports a network of over 30 student chapters across the United States, hosts the largest student-run space conference in the world (SpaceVision), provides students opportunities to develop their leadership skills and professional networks, and inspires others through their involvement in space-related projects. Alumni can be found throughout the space industry in both traditional and “New Space” companies. For more information, visit: http://www.seds.org.
The Space Tech Expo will be held this week from May 21st through May 23rd in Long Beach, California at the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center. This year’s conference will be themed around “The Business Case for Space.” Many companies and organizations affiliated with SEDS, including Google Lunar X PRIZE and XCOR, will also be present as exhibitors. Registration as an Exhibition visitor and for the Satellite & Space Summit is free (http://www.spacetechexpo.com/registration).
