NISE 2019 - Free Sunday Event
To Infinity and Beyond:
A discussion of space travel with Kevin Hehmeyer & Scott Manley
Do you enjoy science?
Are you interested in space travel?
Have you ever wondered how space travel works?
If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, NISE is offering a night for you to relax and learn from two experts in the field. The night will be full of information on the science and economic future of space travel, where featured presentations will talk about the logistical future of space travel and some of the problems that can arise. During this event, you will also have the opportunity to meet each presenter, ask questions, and discuss space with others interested in the field. This event is open to teachers, students (high school or college), or anyone looking to enjoy a NISE night of space discussion and learning.
This event will feature a presentation on space travel by two popular YouTube personalities in the space enthusiast community:
- Scott Manley, grew up in Scotland, studied astrophysics and computational physics before going on to create his own YouTube channel. His videos have generated over 250 million views. He will present on "Why rockets fail?" which will discuss the science and engineering mistakes that have resulted in exploding rockets.
- Kevin Hehmeyer, will discuss how countries are partnering up and private companies are lending a hand to find the most efficient methods of exploring deep space. Kevin is a former science teacher and current YouTube star who covers the progress of SpaceX and the future of space travel.
