SPACE SETTLEMENT SYMPOSIUM

WORLDS OF THE FRONTIER

MOON

As we begin to return to the Moon we will start to face all of the basic legal issues that must be handled to enable the settlement of space. Resource rights, safety, property rights and the general rules of law and order, all will have to be applied or created for the first time. Who will decide? By what right? How will they be enforced?

MARS

Be it life support, construction or transportation to space and back, what will it take to live on the Red Planet? Papers will be presented on the full range of technologies, products and systems needed to build and sustain human colonies on Mars.

FREE SPACE

From private space stations to cities in space, from asteroid mining to in space manufacturing, the space between worlds is a unique environment. Presenters will offer us their newest ideas about what may turn out to be the heart of the action on the High Frontier.

Special Evening Event

The Space Cowboy Ball

An EarthLight Foundation Education Fundraiser

Sat. Nov. 16, 2019 @ 7 PM, Bullock Texas State History Museum

Join us as we and our Celebrity Master of Ceremonies Cas Anvar (Captain of the Rocinante on “the Expanse”) honour the year’s best science fiction movies and TV shows at a cool and very special event, featuring artists, musicians, food and dance. We will also honour one of Texas’s top space educators and have a very special guest TBA (last year it was Jeff Bezos!)

It’s 2119. You’re invited to a formal affair at a space colony on the Moon or Mars. What on Earth (or space) will you wear? The first three Space Cowboy Balls were a rousing success. The 2019 edition will be a must-attend event of both the space and Austin celebrity year.

Space has been too boring for too long. We are committed to both the technology and culture of tomorrow. From tux to tech, all are welcome to our celebration of the future. It’s a little like a second Halloween, this time for grown ups, space geeks and cos play gamers. From the Expanse to Serenity, Star Wars to Star Trek, and all the best science fiction futures in between, come join us on a micro-Burning Man rocket ride. We’ll give out some awards, eat some great barbeque and then we Party!
