The National Space Society will present the International Space Development Conference® 2021 (ISDC® 2021) held virtually on June 24-27, 2021. The four-day virtual conference will focus on key areas of space development: space settlement, space policy, space solar power, Moon, and international space programs.

 

NASA is planning to establish a permanent human presence on the Moon within the next decade and then continue onward to Mars. ISDC 2021 will highlight the public and private efforts to push the boundaries of space exploration—back to the Moon, then to Mars.
