Rice Space Institute Conference

The Rice Space Institute and Rice University Scientia are presenting a two-day conference exploring the impact of space exploration on humanity’s self-perception. This conference, Space Exploration and Human Imagination: Space Futures, will examine how our growing understanding of the universe is changing our perceptions of humanity, what the societal and cultural implications are of the expansion of human presence in space, and how the culture of space exploration is changing. Leading experts will discuss these aspects through a series of lectures and Q&A.

The conference will be held April 11 – 12 at the International Conference Center at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy.

The conference is FREE and open to all, however registration IS required. The conference program is online.
