We are thrilled to announce that SpaceVision 2016 will be hosted in conjunction with Purdue University SEDS in Indiana!
Purdue University has a rich history and continued involvement in the aerospace industry. Their 23 astronaut alumni gave Purdue the nickname “Cradle of Astronauts“, including both the first man and last man to set foot on the surface of the Moon. For this reason, the theme of SpaceVision 2016 will be “Next Steps”, through which they will explore the future of human and robotic space exploration, discussing why we explore, where we will go, and the technologies and people that will bring us there. Purdue’s renowned faculty, alumni, corporate partners, and state-of-the-art laboratories provide ample support for this theme and make them an ideal host for SpaceVision 2016. Read More
