SpaceUp is a space unconference, where participants decide the topics, schedule, and structure of the event. Unconferences have been held about technology, science, transit, and even cupcakes, but this is the first one focused on space exploration.

SpaceUp is your unconference

Everyone who attends SpaceUp is encouraged to give a talk, moderate a panel, or start a discussion. Sessions are proposed and scheduled on the day they’re given, which means the usual “hallway conversations” turn into full-fledged topics.

Meeting all of these people has really given me the courage to step out and say, “I am going to take an active role in making space more common around here. I need, as a human, to show my fellow peers the wonders of the stars.”

Zachary McCauley, after SpaceUp DC
