Life Beyond Earth

Life Beyond Earth

This year’s Ten Years Hence marks the twentieth year of the lecture series. The theme for 2022, Life Beyond Earth, will explore a number of interesting subjects, including space tourism, commercialization of space, manned space exploration, remotely piloted vehicles in space, asteroids and other near earth objects, as well as a rapidly emerging competition between nations in space. We have selected seven renowned experts to help us understand how developments on and near the earth will affect us all in the years just ahead.
