The AMSAT-UK International Space Colloquium will be held as an online Zoom Webinar on Sunday the 24th October 2021. You don’t have to be a member of AMSAT-UK to attend, and the event is free.

The Colloquium will run from 10.45 BST to approximately 16.00 BST (0945-1500 GMT). A full programme is below.

Please register before the 24th, or join live.

The 2021 colloquium will also be streamed via YouTube.

The event will be hosted by members of AMSAT-UK and formally opened by our Chairman, Martin Sweeting, G3YJO.

Each presentation will be followed by a 5 minute Q+A session, which will allow those viewing via Zoom, to pose questions to the speakers.

The 2021 colloquium will be followed by the AMSAT-UK Annual General Meeting and after a short break there will be an informal evening discussion session on ‘all things satellite.’
