MIT150 Symposium - Earth, Air, Ocean and Space: The Future of Exploration

Tuesday, April 26, 2011 - Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Join us in April 2011 to engage in shaping the future of exploration and discovery for 2050.MIT 150 Symposium Logo

The symposium on exploration will discuss key questions for humans who embark on journeys of exploration where there is remarkable potential for discovery. When it comes to exploring earth, air, ocean and space, MIT’s contributions have shaped the 20th century. Great inventors and explorers such as MIT’s own Doolittle, Draper, and Edgerton contributed breakthrough technologies and instrumentation along with personal exploration and piloting feats. These inventors, engineers, scientists, and artists literally put us on the moon and let us ‘see the unseen’.
