Space Rendezvous - Human Spaceflight and Space Exploration
Time: Tue 2018-10-09 13.00 - 18.00
Location: Lecture hall E1, Lindstedtsvägen 3, floor 2.
A couple of astronauts, researchers, space engineers, a former MP of the parliament and students gave presentations and discussed about the future for Human spaceflight and exploration. Here you can find the recordings and follow the lectures even if you could not attend the event!
Human spaceflight will expand enormously during the coming decade. Today there is only two vehicles in operation that can take humans to space: the Russian Soyuz and the Chinese Shenzhou. We can expect four new American vehicles within 1-2 years, both for sub-orbital “space jumps” and for orbital flights. In about five years the first crewed flight around the Moon since 1972 will happen and soon after there will be a space station around the Moon. This development and further was the theme for the KTH Space Rendezvous Autumn 2018.
