The world’s greatest scientists, engineers, astronauts, and space entrepreneurs admit that science fiction inspired their career choices and fired their determination to see humans travel beyond Earth’s horizons. We recognize and honor the role that science fiction has played in the renaissance of space development.
At the International Space Development Conference® you can meet the central figures in science fiction who inspire today’s space leaders:
Cas Anvar: It’s two hundred years in the future and humans have populated the solar system and are prospering and competing-politically and economically. Anvar plays a rogue Mars Federation pilot who talks tough, fights tougher and has a big Texas heart on SyFy Channel’s hit show, “The Expanse.” Anvar studied chemical engineering before training as a professional actor at the prestigious National Theater School of Canada, and knows his science.
David Brin: Scientist, inventor, and New York Times bestselling author. With degrees from Caltech and the University of California, San Diego, Dr. Brin serves on advisory panels ranging from NASA’s Innovative & Advanced Concepts program (NIAC) to those dealing with artificial intelligence, nanotech, SETI, national defense and technological ethics. His bestselling book “The Postman” was made into a major motion picture starring Kevin Costner.
