KTH Space Center organizes two Space Rendezvous each year, one during each academic period. It is a half day event filled with talks on a specific space-related topic. The theme this time is 'Towards Moon and Mars'. Several exciting speakers have been invited, including ESA astronaut Frank De Winne but also Mats Holmström (IRF-K) and Javier Martin Torres (LTU). The event will be held October 12 between 13-17. Below you can see the program for the day. The event will be held both on site (E1) and via Zoom. The event will be recorded and can be seen afterwards. If you do not want to be seen in the recording, it is important to always have the camera and sound turned off.

We have limited the number of attendees to 50 on site in E1 and we also require that you register on the form below if you wish to join us in E1:
