SPACE MISSION NON-PROFIT WORLD PREMIERE AT ISDC
SPACE MISSION NON-PROFIT WORLD PREMIERE: An International collaboration of space enthusiasts and Industry leaders to debut the world scientific and educational opportunity called Enterprise in Space.
Enterprise in Space (EIS), the grassroots, globally crowd-funded and custom-designed orbiter mission with 100+ winning worldwide student projects and aerospace demos aboard, sponsored by the National Space Society (NSS), will unveil its new video and project details at the climax of Friday’s dinner of the International Space Development Conference (ISDC) at Toronto’s downtown Hyatt this weekend. The theme of this year’s ISDC is “Next Breakthrough Technologies”, and the EIS project will demonstrate these breakthrough technologies and encourage and support education through contests from K-12 + University/Post Grad, the winners of which will be orbited at no cost to the students or their schools.
The EIS project, as a future-leaning homage to sci-fi and real-space heroes of the past, aims to orbit and return the “NSS Enterprise”, complete with enterpriseMind, an artificial intelligence to serve as the voice interface with the students during design, testing, integration and flight of their experiments. Over 300 student winners of NSS contests worldwide will be on hand to view the EIS project kickoff among the crowd of space industry leaders at Friday’s Governors’ dinner, a highlight of the ISDC. George Whitesides, CEO of Virgin Galactic, will be giving the keynote speech entitled “Space and Humanity’s Greatest Challenges”.
