25 Sep - IoTAS to attend Sixty Years of Satellites – from Sputnik to Space X
Kevin Spalding, Operations Director (Global) and Beth Spalding, Business Administrator IoTAS will be attending the Cambridge Wireless event ‘Sixty Years of Satellites – from Sputnik to Space X’.
On October 4th 1957, the 40th anniversary of the Bolshevik revolution, the USSR launched the first artificial satellite in space, Sputnik 1.
Sixty years on, satellites have become an essential part of everyday life, delivering our TV, telephone and broadband data and telling us where we are with a precision which would have seemed extraordinary just a few years ago.
In this second event this year at the Science Museum and as a follow on to the satellite session at the Cambridge Wireless International Conference (CWIC) in July, the Cambridge Wireless Heritage Group revisits sixty years of technical innovation in the satellite industry and hosts presentations from four companies at the leading edge of a new era of space based communication.
Start time/date: 16:00 – 5th October 2018
End time/date: 20:00 – 5th October 2018
Venue: Science Museum, Exhibition Road, South Kensington, London SW7 2DD
