The 6th Interstellar Symposium and Advanced Interstellar Propulsion Workshop, presented by the Tennessee Valley Interstellar Workshop (TVIW) in collaboration with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and hosted jointly by Wichita State University and Ad Astra Kansas Foundation, was held in Wichita, KS on November 10-15, 2019. It included a special two and a half day NASA Propulsion Workshop focusing on Beamed Energy Propulsion and Highly Energetic Nuclear Processes for Propulsion (Fusion and Antimatter). This was a new addition to our regular symposia, a workshop focusing on a specific aspect of interstellar exploration. It was a part of the overall symposium and did not require special registration. We hope and expect everyone learned much about the current state of the art and future directions for many varied propulsion methods that may one day take us to the stars!
We’ll also had an afternoon/evening excursion to Cosmosphere, an international science education center and space museum.
