Description

SSI and the High Frontier
Gary Hudson, President
Space Studies Institute

The Space Studies Institute (SSI) is a non-profit founded by Gerard O’Neill in 1977. It conducts and supports theoretical and experimental research related to the knowledge, understanding and use of energy and material resources in space for the improvement of the human condition. Recent projects include: G-Lab, an on-orbit gravity laboratory; and the Exotic Propulsion Initiative, a project to explore and fund breakthrough propulsion opportunities at the very borderlands of physics

Gary Hudson, current president of SSI, will discuss the current state of SSI activities.
