PRESS RELEASE - PERSBERICHT

The future of Space Travel
A public dialogue organised by the Club of Amsterdam
.

Speakers and topics:
Gerard 't Hooft, Nobel Laureate from Utrecht University
Moving to Outer Space: Science and Science Fiction
Many Science Fiction ideas about space travel will be impossible forever, based as they are more on fiction than on science. What would more realistic scenarios look like? What does it take to colonize the Solar System? Will we ever be able to escape to other stars? Will the colonists be humans of flesh and blood or advanced robots?

Bas Lansdorp, Co-Founder & General Director, Mars One
Humans on Mars in 2023
Mars One is a non for profit organization whose intent is to establish a colony on Mars through the integration of existing, readily available technologies from industry leaders world-wide. Unique in its approach, Mars One intends to fund this decade-long endeavour through an interactive, reality TV style of the human mission to Mars.

Michel van Pelt, spaceflight engineer, author, Netherlands Space Society
Future Robotic Science and Exploration
Over the last half century satellites and space probes have vastly increased our knowledge of the solar system and the Universe. The Hubble Space Telescope, the Curiosity Mars rover and many less famous spacecraft are continuously broadening our horizon. As technological capabilities and scientific requirements evolve, new types of space telescopes, landers, rovers and planetary satellites emerge. This presentation will offer a short overview of what’s in store.

Moderated by Job Romijn, bedenker, brainstormer, problem solver, artist. Club of Amsterdam Round Table.
