New Media for the New Space Age

Date TBA

Astronaut Dr. Sian Proctor will engage in discussion between today’s leading space documentarians on what it’s like to chase rockets and report from the forefront of our thrilling new space age.

Hear from today’s leading space explorers, YouTubers, and rocket photographers about what it’s like to document the new space age. The discussion will focus on the unprecedented access and visibility the direct access the public has to witness the development, testing, and launching of spacecraft destined to usher in the next wave of human space exploration.

The panel blends the point of view and experience of news correspondents, scientists, and those who can explain the technologies involved, with the aesthetic sensibilities of artists, photographers, and filmmakers.
