The International Space University is proud to announce that during its 9-week Space Studies Program (SSP), participants will be able to attend a TEDx Event. TEDxISU will be held on
July 6, 2012 — 8:00am-12:30pm EDT
TED started out in 1984 as a non-profit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. The main stream is to bring together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, and Design. TED holds annual conferences in Long Beach, Palm Springs and Edinburgh UK. TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.
During TEDxISU, leaders from the Space Community address how the power of ideas in technology, entertainment, and design influences and
inspires their work in Space. The audience will be a mixture of leaders from the Space industry, participants of the ISU SSP12
session, host site personnel from FIT and NASA, local Space Companies, and the general public.
TEDxISU theme this year is 'Open Source Space', how the power of new ideas can drive whole new paradigm shifts in our society. TEDxISU 2012 focuses on how Space is of Service to Humanity and the Environment; that is, how our work in Space makes life better down here on Earth. This will be the first joint TEDx event for ISU, NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, and FIT.
