Summer Course: Human Exploration of the Far Solar System and on to the Stars
Date: 26th – 30th July 2021
To be delivered online by the Initiative for Interstellar Studies on behalf of Limitless Space Institute.
The Limitless Space Institute has commissioned the Initiative for Interstellar Studies to create a new course to educate and inspire the next generation to explore and travel beyond our solar system. With new material being developed, it will also incorporate material previously delivered to the International Space University and i4is’ own ‘Starship Engineer’ courses.
The course will provide a fundamental appreciation and basic knowledge of principal subjects, from setting the background and context through to advanced propulsion, systems, concepts, and designs. The course will be predominantly (but not exclusively) a STEM-based course and specifically targeting the level of freshman/first year STEM university students. Attendees will need a suitable background and have a particular interest in the most ambitious opportunities for human exploration of space.
