The presentation videos from the 6th Interstellar Symposium are being posted as they are finished.  Keep coming back, as we’re adding new videos as quickly as they’re done (the first two days of presentations are now completely online, with the third day presentations coming shortly)!

The latest episodes of our vlog, “From Here to the Stars,” are now online, with interviews of Nik Rao, Stephen Fleming, Jeff Greason, and Angelle Turner.  You can see them in our vlog video gallery.

The latest issue of our newsletter, “Have Starship, Will Travel,” is now available.  Take a look at it and enjoy!

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!

Photos from the 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.
