The 65th International Astronautical Congress 2014, the world’s premier space event, will take place in Toronto, Canada from September 29 to October 3, 2014 at the award-winning Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The Congress theme “Our World Needs Space” will promote an exploration of the relationship between Earth and space and the ways that space activities help to meet our needs on Earth.

The Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute (CASI) is proud to host IAC 2014. CASI has had the priviledge of hosting two previous IACs, both to great acclaim: IAC 1991 in Montreal, and more recently IAC 2004 in Vancouver.

This unique global international collaborative platform brings together experts active in industry, government and academia, as well as many retirees and amateurs of space. IAC 2014 will provide an excellent opportunity for participants from around the world to network and present their latest accomplishments and future plans, identify opportunities for collaboration, and share their opinions on the widest possible array of topics.

IAC 2014 Chair Ron Holdway looks forward to welcoming YOU to Toronto for IAC 2014!

    The Dark Ages Lunar Interferometer (DALI) with polyimide foil and embedded low frequency dipoles will study the early Universe.NLSI’s LUNAR team is testing of a piece of Kapton film at the University of Colorado at Boulder under a vacuum of about 10^-7 torr. The objective of this month long test is to simulate the lunar conditions that the Kapton film will experience during a year on the moon. The vacuum chamber will be cycled between -150 and 100 degrees Celscius with each hot or cold cycle lasting 24 hours.
