There is just one day left to book a place for the AMSAT-UK International Space Colloquium.
The 23rd AMSAT-UK International Space Colloquium will be held at the University of Surrey, Guildford, England from Friday 25th until Sunday 27th July.
Prof Sir Martin Sweeting, G3YJO Chairman AMSAT-UK, will open the Colloquium at 14:00 BST (13:00 GMT) on the Friday.
This will be followed by the keynote speech given by Dr Rob Gowen, Department of Space & Climate Physics (Mullard Space Science Laboratory, University College London and Coordinator of the UK Lunar Penetrator Consortium) on "Science Penetrators for the UK MoonLITE mission".
There will be presentations from AMSAT-DL on both the eagerly awaited P3E satellite and the pioneering Mars Orbiter P5A. This will be the first private venture spacecraft to travel to the Red Planet providing Radio Amateurs with some true DX signals.
The Delfi-C3 team will be giving presentations on their exciting new satellite. Its SSB/CW 435/145 linear transponder will activated soon and is sure to prove popular with satellite enthusiasts world-wide.
The IARU Satellite Forum chaired by the IARU Satellite Adviser Hans van de Groenendaal ZS6AKV will take place during the Colloquium.
The Colloquium is open to all. Either day passes or full packages comprising overnight accommodation and meals are available. An online booking service is available with PayPal, Visa and Master Card payments accepted.
