The first Asgardia Science and Investment Congress will take place in Bruges, Belgium, on June 18-20, 2019. The event focuses on moon exploration.

Fifty years ago, humans first set foot on the lunar surface. The time has come to prepare for another visit, and this time, with the prospects of staying.

The first Asgardian Science and Investment Congress will focus on three topics: procreation in space, cosmic radiation, and artificial and moon gravity.

The ultimate goal of permanent space habitation would be the ability to continue the human life cycle off-planet, including giving birth to a child in space. But numerous problems have to be tackled first. Solving these issues - related to physiology, radiation, artificial or reduced gravity, as well as habitat-related problems and life support systems - pushes the human ingenuity and creativity.

During this congress, experts and scientists from different disciplines are invited to create an up-to-date roadmap that paves the way to achieving these distant goals.
Humans are born to explore. On Earth, we have been up virtually every hill, and have sailed sailed every sea and ocean. We know that we must go beyond that.

Keynote speakers, who will share their expertise on radiation, construction in complex environments and life support systems, include astronauts Frank De Winne (ESA) and Bob Thirsk (Canada). A number of prominent scientists, including neurosensory systems and artificial gravity expert Laurence Young, radiation expert Marco Durante and former NASA life scientist John Charles will also speak at the event.
