Philadelphia, PA—Icarus Interstellar today announced that registration is open for Starship Congress 2015, the awaited follow-up to 2013’s debut Starship Congress. Starship Congress is the not-for-profit science organization’s biennial international assemblage of recognized interstellar-and-deep space scientists and proponents. The 2nd Starship Congress will be hosted at Drexel University this September 4-5.
With a nod to this year’s University setting and a Hollywood and video game-driven surge in popularity of deep space exploration (“Interstellar”, “Guardians of the Galaxy”, “EVE: Valkyrie”, “Kerbal Space Program 1.0”), Starship Congress 2015 is being subtitled Interstellar Hackathon—featuring talks and presentations centered on hacking the paradigm of interstellar space exploration. Events leading up to the September summit include academic paper submission, poster contest and crowdfunded Kickstarter campaign. Drexel University is home to the first collegiate chapter of Icarus Interstellar.
