NEW DATE

SHAPING THE POLICY PATH TO COMMUNITIES BEYOND EARTH (SSPI/BEI), Oct 21, 2021, virtual, 6:00-7:30 pm ET

Update: This event has been postponed to October 21, 2021 from 6:00-7:30 pm ET.

Original Entry: SSPI and the Beyond Earth Institute (BEI) will host a webinar on October 7, 2021 from 5:30-7:00 pm ET.

More information is in an emailed announcement, which says:

Can humans live and work in space – permanently? Is humankind’s destiny to become an off-world (or multi-world) species? Is it science fiction, or have we reached a point where it’s just a matter of time, resources, and imagination?

The Beyond Earth Institute was created in 2020 with the mission of shaping space policy and regulation in a way that accelerates the establishment of communities beyond Earth – and benefits all of humanity in the process.

Join SSPI for a moderated panel discussion with the founders of Beyond Earth and other experts in space policy to learn what defines a community in space, how emerging technologies like Space Solar Power will enable space habitation, how large-scale space infrastructure projects could be financed, and how legal frameworks such as the Outer Space Treaty could lead to a future where large groups of people are happily living and working in space.

  • Steven Wolfe is a Beyond Earth Institute co-founder. He is also Deputy Executive Director for Global Spaceport Alliance and partner at CWSP International
