Beyond the Moon Symposium | British Interplanetary Society @ Online
Marking Cosmonauts’ Day and the 60th anniversary of man’s first space flight by Yuri Gagarin, the British Interplanetary Society’s ‘Beyond the Moon’ symposium, will be on 12 April 2021. We will be holding this event virtually on a specialised conferencing platform.
All contributions are welcome. Papers, presentations and talks should identify and define the problems that must be faced by humans as they explore, exploit and settle the solar system in the years following the establishing of bases on the Moon and, if possible, propose solutions. All submissions, with titles and abstracts, should be sent to
The BIS is keen to stimulate the study of the 10 most important barriers to human expansion into the solar system. They are:
  • Radiation;
  • Extended Flight Time;
  • Zero or Low Gravity;
  • Self-Sustainable Communities;
  • Infection – pandemics in densely-populated communities;
  • Mental Robustness;
  • Machine Intelligence;
  • Economics;
  • Socio-Cultural;
  • Political/Ideological/Religious;
It is hoped that this will become an annual event, appropriately on Cosmonauts Day, 12 April, and will be a focus for future space activity, anticipating the steps that the human race will have to take to ensure its long-term survival.
