SPACE INNOVATIONS | SMART BUSINESS
The 20th Anniversary of the beginning of construction of the International Space Station (ISS) is a moment to celebrate. The first element of the International Space Station was successfully launched on November 20, 1998. It was an autonomous launch from Russia using a Proton rocket. This element was a control module named Zarya.
This was followed on December 4, 1998, by shuttle mission STS-88 which brought UNITY, the first of three nodes planned for the station.
The first crew was launched on July 12, 2000, and we have had a permanent human presence on station ever since!
Participate in the Celebration and the NEW Pavilion
If you are involved with the ISS and want to participate in the celebration, SpaceCom is creating a unique area on the show floor—the ISS Pavilion. Contact Rich Hodge if you would like to put your company in the spotlight of this area. The pavilion will be a minimum of 1,600 square feet and will include:
During the Opening Reception, several astronauts and key figures in the construction effort will make brief remarks and have a toast.
The SpaceCom conference program has always showcased the value of the ISS and the ways it has helped humanity and continues to do so. This will continue in the 2018 conference with emphasis on the commercial industries that can benefit the most from using the ISS capabilities.
