Members of the public, industry professionals and academics have descended upon the Texas city for the third annual 100-Year Starship symposium, which will discuss what the world needs to do in the next 100 years to take starship technology out of the realm of science fiction and into reality.
The conference started today (Sept. 19) and runs through Sunday (Sept. 22). It’s hosted by the 100 Year Starship initiative, which was started with seed money from the U.S. military‘s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and seeks to develop a vehicle over the next century that could reach a far-off star within a reasonable amount of time.
