starship-design: Still Old News, But Getting Warmer...

Title: Untitled Stationery

This is from the same site as the previous thread "Old News" but one quarter more recent:


Of particular interest is the topic below:

CONFERENCE ON ENABLING TECHNOLOGY AND REQUIRED SCIENTIFIC DEVELOPMENTS FOR INTERSTELLAR MISSIONS Building on the success of the breakthrough propulsion sessions at the 1999 Space Technology and Applications International Forum (STAIF), held February 1-4, 1999 in Albuquerque, NM, a conference on interstellar technology and science is planned for STAIF-2000. Session chairs include Les Johnson (MSFC), Sarah A. Gavit (JPL), Marc Millis (GRC), and others. The following sessions are planned within this conference:

  1. Interstellar Mission Concepts

  2. Propulsion Technologies for Interstellar Precursor Missions

  3. Propulsion Technologies for Interstellar Flyby and Rendezvous Missions

  4. Mission Benefits of Breakthrough Propulsion Physics

  5. Candidate Space Experiments to Test Breakthrough Propulsion Physics

  6. Research Progress toward Breakthrough Propulsion Physics

  7. Computational Tools to Address Problems of Breakthrough Propulsion Physics
