NASA’s Innovative Advanced Concepts Symposium will be held March 27-29 at the Westin Pasadena Hotel, 191 North Los Robles Ave., in Pasadena, Calif.
The NIAC examines early stage concepts that may lead to advanced and innovative space technologies critical for NASA to enable missions 10 to 100 years from today.
Panel topics during the symposium include space debris elimination, fission fragment rocket engine propelled spacecraft, and the potential for ambient plasma wave propulsion systems.
NIAC is part of NASA’s Space Technology Program, which develops technologies that enable future NASA missions. NIAC awardees come from academia, the private sector and government research labs.
