After nearly 200 panels that took attendees around the world, the Global Conference's closing panel takes them out of this world--to the realm of interplanetary and interstellar exploration. Focusing on the limitless possibilities that emerge when dreamers and doers work together, we'll consider:

  • How soon will humans walk on Mars?
  • Do science-fiction films accurately depict space travel?
