Event description

Description

Come and meet world leaders on Space and Antarctica, who will share their stories and experiences, at this full- day Techweek18 event.

Extreme Environments – from the Antarctic to Space will bring together local, national and international experts to help attendees understand how exploration in the Antarctic is a dry run for Space exploration. The event will also highlight ways to use Space tech to provide innovative solutions to today’s current navigational and scientific challenges.

When: Thursday 24 May, from 9.30am until 6.30pm

Where: Addington Event Centre, 75 Jack Hinton Drive, Addington.

While on the face of it Space and the Antarctic seem very different, they raise many of the same challenges due to their remoteness and inhospitable climates.

The programme features world-class speakers, panel discussions and breakout sessions. It will culminate in the Grand Final of the inaugural
NZ Space Challenge, where regional finalists pitch their Antarctic navigation innovations to a panel of national and international judges.

This event will appeal to those from the science, research, technology, innovation and education eco-systems and anybody with an interest in the Antarctic and Space and saving the world.


We hope to see there!
