How to make a fortune in space? Start with one here on Earth…

Reg lecture shows where scientists AND VCs are boldly going next

We all know the ambition of Silicon Valley’s finest know no bounds - not even gravity. So it’s no surprise that some of the world’s finest business minds are training their brain power and considerable fortunes far beyond our own, rather limited world.

That’s why on June 22, International Space University’s Prof Chris Welch will join us to discuss:

In space no-one can hear you scream - but can they hear you make money?

In this Reg Summer lecture, Chris will be discussing how space is the latest frontier for business. He’ll cover the new generation of space explorers, the technology they are exploiting and developing, and the venture capitalists behind them. You can buy tickets right here.

From nanosats, to asteroid mining, and beyond, this talk will be a must for anyone whose scientific or business ambitions stretch further than this planet. You can get full details and buy tickets here.

Chris is just one of three professors we have visiting us this summer.

On June 28, we welcome Murray Shanahan, Professor of Cognitive Robotics at Imperial College, who will explain whether we should be scared about the prospect of AI and robots matching our own intelligence - and indeed whether we’re already lagging behind.

And on July 5 IBM inventor and Newcastle Uni visiting prof Andy Stanford-Clark will explain what the internet of things really means for your job, for your home, for society in general, and the Isle of Wight ferry service.

The talks will be at the Yorkshire Grey on Theobalds Road, London. The doors will be open from 6pm, with the talk proper kicking off at 7pm.

The format remains unchanged, meaning our speaker will give you a 40 minute dive into the topic at hand, with at least the same amount of time for questions. After a suitable break for refreshments of course. And there’ll be plenty of time to quiz our speakers after the main talk, and to connect with your fellow Reg readers before and after.

It’s the perfect way to exercise the grey matter and exercise your social and intellectual muscles before schools break up and the BBQ season kicks off. We look forward to seeing you there. ®
