The human desire to look up, wonder, and explore is innate, and space is truly a fascinating frontier for our species. It is also a very practical industry, since our global telecommunications and imaging systems already depend on satellites, and space tourism is imminent. The space industry is starting to boom, and with it come plans for new industries and dreams of new opportunities for humanity. Come learn from two experts on the technologies and science of spaceflight and the opportunities of future space industries, and dream big with us at this special Austin Forum event on technology, space, and humanity.

Admission to the Austin Forum is always free. Free street parking is available on Tuesdays!


The Austin Forum accepts donations of used cell phones and smart phones at all our events. All devices will have a factory reset and be set up as new by the team at Austin Pathways’ nationally-recognized “Unlocking the Connection” initiative, which will connect every public housing resident with a digital device, digital literacy training, and a free or very low-cost internet connection. Your donated phone can change lives and help close Austin's digital divide, thanks to Austin Pathways.
