Team Phoenicia/Techshop Nanosat Launcher Challenge Seminar Update

It seems that news cannot come strictly good or bad. However, it must come together.

The Bads News: NO CSA

The agenda is being revised right now. Unfortunately, the California Space Authority has declined the opportunity to present. We have extended invitations to other, different individuals and organizations.

Good News: Strong Enough Interest to Warrant Reservations

On the other hand, the interest has grown so much that we are now concerned that our limited seating venue will not be sufficient. Since this seminar is rapidly approaching and currently we can take "only" 100 people, we are offering a chance for individuals place reservations. The reservations are not free: between Oct 15th to Oct 29th a reservation will cost $50 and between Oct 30th to Nov 5th it will cost $75. Reservations will only be available until the seating is filled. We will keep a count of the number of reservations left and will post running count once 50 have been filled.


It is not required. If there is space, we will be allowing people to walk in free of charge on Nov6th. However, this is on a first come-first serve basis and only for whatever the available seating is. If there is any. There are no guarantees for available seating for any but those that make the reservations.

THAT SAID, the networking session after all the presentations are done is open to everyone, even walk-ups. That will be after some time after 6 PM though.

BETTER NEWS! Presentations on youtube.

We will be posting the Nanosat Launcher Challenge Seminar presentations on youtube to the Team Phoenicia channel.
