November 8-11 at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center in Buffalo, New York

Speaker

Marc Millis

Marc Millis is a leading international authority on the search for breakthrough methods of spaceflight. Much of this work is comparing various approaches, although Millis has initiated some theoretical work of his own, both inside and outside his day-job. He has produced over 30 technical and management papers, an award-winning website ("Warp Drive, When?"), and recently published: "Making the jump to light-speed" in the National Geographic book: Star Wars - Where Science Meets Imagination. In addition to propulsion physics, Millis has designed ion thrusters, electronics for rocket monitoring, cryogenic propellant equipment, and even a cockpit display to guide free-fall aircraft flights.
