"On Things to Come"

In order to connect with the scientific community and create a much needed international bridge between institutes, space agencies, and experts from different countries and continents despite the current difficult circumstances, ISSI-BJ has decided to organize its brand-new online seminars series called "On Things to Come" (oTtC). 

The seminars will aim to introduce to the scientific community ongoing as well as new space missions organized by different space agencies and it will allow the audience to interact with the speaker and ask questions about the projects. 

Missions such as ESA's Comet Interceptor, NASA's Dragonfly, and the joint SMILE mission of ESA and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) will be presented by prominent scientists, like Prof. Geraint Jones (University College London’s Mullard Space Science Laboratory, UK), Prof. Ralph Lorenz (Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab., USA), Prof. Chi Wang (CAS, China), Prof. Heike Rauer (DLR Institute of Planetary Research, Germany), and many others.

Participation is free and registration is required. Please sign up to the ISSI-BJ Newsletter to receive our updates and the invitation to the seminars.
