Space Night at Harvard


Monday, April 22, 2019, 5:00pm to 9:00pm


Austin Hall 100, 1515 Mass Ave., Cambridge

Space Night aims to shine the light on the dynamic and multidisciplinary Harvard and MIT space community. The event will kick off with two 20-minute state-of-the-art talks on Mars, Moxie and MIT by Astronaut Jeffrey Hoffman and on 20 Years with NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, From First Light to Virtual Reality by Professor Kim Kowal.

These talks will be followed by 3 panels of lightning talks dedicated to Harvard and MIT's exciting new space curriculum and space student groups, as well as a panel on career paths in the private space sector. Each panelist will have 180 seconds to convey the core of their role, followed by a 10-minute Q&A panel. An hour meet-and-greet will directly follow the 3rd and last panel of the night, so that the public and speakers can interact and celebrate together Harvard’s first Space Night!
