Dent @ SDCC Reception and Tech Demo
July 19, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm PDTFree
We’re excited to announce that, thanks to the support of our friends at Lockheed Martin Space, we are headed back at Stone Brewing Tap Room in San Diego to host a post-session reception and technology demo on Thursday 7/19 starting at 5:00pm PT.
At the reception, registered guests will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with both our Moonbase and MIT Media Lab session panelists and witness some incredible cutting-edge tech demos, all while enjoying some of the best beer that California has to offer. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to rub elbows with an astronaut, current and former NASA researchers, and some of the brightest minds the MIT media lab has to offer.
Please Note: All attendees must register separately. We cannot accept more than 2 registrations under the same name and/or email. Thank you!
Our special guest at the reception is former NASA astronaut Cady Coleman. Cady has logged nearly 4,500 hours and 180 days in space, is a veteran of two space shuttle missions, and participated in a six-month tour aboard the International Space Station. Coleman is also an accomplished chemist with a doctorate in polymer science and engineering from University of Massachusetts Amherst, and a BS in Chemistry from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. While completing work for her PhD at UMASS, she joined the U.S. Air Force as Second Lieutenant. She retired from the Air Force in 2009 and from NASA in 2016. Among her final assignments at NASA was leading public-private partnership initiatives for the Office of the Chief Technologist at NASA Headquarters.
