The AMSAT-UK International Space Colloquium takes place at the Holiday Inn, Guildford, GU2 7XZ, UK this weekend, July 20-21.
Thanks to BATC volunteers all 18 presentations should be streamed live to the web, enabling them to be seen by a global audience.
Clearly a webcast cannot match actually being there, with the opportunity to chat to satellite builders and inspect space hardware, but if you can’t get to Guildford then the webcast provides the next best thing.
Watch live at http://www.batc.tv/ch_live.php?ch=3 (view stream AMSAT 2013)
There will also be a Chat facility available that can be used to ask the presenters questions, set your chat ID by entering: /nick “your callsign” or /nick “your name”.
