The SpaceUp unConference Allows Everyone to Participate in Space Exploration

San Diego, CA - SpaceUp has proven to be a unique and successful format for spreading new ideas on space exploration, outreach, and education. The Space Frontier Foundation is excited to once again sponsor this unConference and highly recommends our supporters take part. At SpaceUp San Diego, all attendees will have an opportunity to present their views on space industry, as well as decide on the schedule, topics, and structure of all events. It will take place February 12-13, 2011 at The Loft at UC San Diego. Space is limited so register online now at spaceup.org/sandiego/register.SpaceUP SD Logo

“I’m excited to see SpaceUp come back to San Diego,” said SpaceUp Founder Chris Radcliff. “The discussions last time at SpaceUp DC were electrifying, and I’ve enjoyed watching last year’s participants become stars in the space community. 2011 is shaping up to be an even better year for space exploration, so we’ll have plenty to talk about.”

Led by members of the San Diego Space Society, SpaceUp San Diego 2010 was a huge success and gave rise to SpaceUp Houston and SpaceUp DC, with more to follow. The brilliance of SpaceUp lies in the fact that anyone with a bright idea can share it with the space community. The fresh and offbeat ideas that come from accessing the brainpower and creativity of the entire space community catalyzes discussions that could lead to a lynchpin business or technology for space settlement. As we all know, space exploration is a monumental task and it will take engineers, educators, enthusiasts, and entrepreneurs alike to empower humanity to settle space. SpaceUp is an important step towards melding all these disparate groups into a powerful space movement.

One fantastic example of the fast pace and originality of the SpaceUp format are the “T minus 5” talks, during which give each participant 5 minutes to get through 20 slides that advance automatically. It makes for some breathless presentations, and when paired with a great topic, it can be inspiring.

For those that cannot make it out to San Diego this year, SpaceVidCast.com will be live streaming the event.
