Nov. 1 Global Forum: Future of Space Exploration

| October 22, 2010

In conjunction with one of the final NASA Space Shuttle launches, Webster University presents The Global Forum: On the Future of Space Exploration, a webcast and online conversation with space studies experts and space education instructors, originating from Webster’s Space Coast campus.

Time: 8 – 9 p.m. EDT, Monday, Nov. 1, 2010
Location/Admission: Free, online web forum

The forum seeks to raise awareness about the future of space exploration, including new career and professional development opportunities.

Dr. Edythe Weeks, Webster University adjunct professor of international relations and space law, opens the discussion with perspectives on the changing geopolitics of space exploration and space industries and their implications for human social systems on Earth and in space.

Other topics include: the future of space research, colonization, tourism, mining, exploitation of resources and environments; space law, and the role of education in space futures. Webster University programs and curricula related to the future of space exploration will be highlighted in this institution-wide learning experience to “transform students for global citizenship.”

SPECIAL NOTE TO INSTRUCTORS: If your class meets on Monday evening (on Nov. 1), please join this global forum during your class.  Or, encourage students to participate in this forum from their home, office or mobile computers or smartphones.
