SpaceUp Phoenix featuring Planetary Society President Jim Bell

Mesa, Arizona

SpaceUp Phoenix is a space exploration “un-conference.” This all-day event is scheduled for Saturday, March 7, 2015 on the campus of Mesa Community College (MCC). SpaceUp Phoenix is being co-sponsored by the local chapters of the National Space Society, the Moon Society, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and MCC. The event will be held in the Physical Sciences Building (near the Planetarium on Dobson Road), beginning at 9 a.m. and will run until 5 p.m. Registration is $5 and covers materials and light refreshments.

This will be a “meet-up” type of event where all attendees are invited to give a demo, present a talk, or participate in a panel or roundtable. No real expertise is needed, as participants can simply pose a question to start a discussion. There will be no detailed agenda in advance, as presenters fill out a program schedule spontaneously at the event using sticky notes on a schedule grid. Think of it as a “pot luck” conference where everyone brings something to share. It will be an informal, fun, environment and everyone interested in space exploration is encouraged to attend.

Dr. Jim Bell, Planetary Scientist from ASU and President of The Planetary Society, will be the keynote speaker at 9:15 a.m. We have invited other engineers and scientists from local companies and universities to participate, so there will space science and technology expertise in attendance to interact with in a way unlike any other conference you have attended. Attendees don’t have to stay for the entire day as it will be very informal.

Online registration is now available at the SpaceUp Phoenix website and we encourage people to sign up in advance so the organizers can plan accordingly.
