We are now accepting applications for our 2020 Scholarship Program.  The deadline for applications is May 15, 2020.  If you’re a candidate and interested in applying take a look at the requirements and get your application in!

The latest edition of our vlog, “From Here to the Stars,” is now online, with an interview of Joe Meany, the secretary and head of publicity for TVIW.  You can see it in our vlog video gallery.

The presentation videos from the 6th Interstellar Symposium are being posted as they are finished.  You can see them here.  Keep coming back, as we’re adding new videos as quickly as they’re done!

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.
