The latest edition of our vlog, “From Here to the Stars,” is now online, with an interview of Toni Weisskopf, the editor of Baen Books.  You can see it in our vlog video gallery.

Photos from the just-finished 6th Interstellar Symposium are now available on our photo gallery.  Take a look at the photos, comment if you like, and enjoy!

We have added a new section to our website called “Resources” (see the top menu). We will be assembling information here that will be of use to many as research information and compilations of references from presentations at our symposia, and any other things that come our way that need to be widely available. The first entry is submitted by Mary Turzillo.

You can now give us your impressions of the 6th Interstellar Symposium!  Just go to our “Impressions” review page and let us know about your experiences in Wichita.

The live streaming web page for our 6th Interstellar Symposium has concluded.  You will be able to view the recorded sessions online shortly.  NASA presentations (the Thursday and Friday sessions) are not available.

The 18th edition of our newsletter, Have Starship, Will Travel, has been published! You can read it here.
