Infinite Horizons
"Infinite Horizons" Online Seminar Series (On Things to Come)

In order to connect with the scientific community and create a much needed international bridge between institutes, space agencies, and experts from different countries and continents, ISSI-BJ organises a monthly online seminars series, "Infinite Horizons". The seminar series started in 2020 as "On Things to Come", and it was later rebranded as "Infinite Horizons" in late 2023. 

The seminars aim to introduce to the scientific community current as well as future space missions organized by different space agencies, allowing the audience to interact with the speaker and ask questions. 

Past seminars in this series have addressed missions such as ESA's Comet Interceptor, NASA's Dragonfly, and the joint SMILE mission of ESA and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), presented by prominent scientists, like Prof. Geraint Jones (University College London’s Mullard Space Science Laboratory, UK), Prof. Ralph Lorenz (Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab., USA), Prof. Chi Wang (CAS, China), Prof. Heike Rauer (DLR Institute of Planetary Research, Germany), and many others.

Participation is free. Please sign up to the ISSI-BJ Newsletter to receive our updates and invitations to join our seminars.
