[Online] Space Intersections Symposium

How will religious and political ideologies define the future of human expansion into space?

Join ASU’s Interplanetary Initiative, in partnership with New America’s Future Tense, for the Space Intersections symposium, which will explore the political and religious rationales for space exploration and expansion.

The symposium will be led by Jack Traphagan, ASU Interplanetary Initiative's 2023-2024 fellow. It will look at space programs from Russia, China, Japan, the U.S., and India, diving into themes including medical research, religion, and armed conflict in the cosmos.
