Tennessee Valley Interstellar Workshop 2017
October 3 - October 6
The Tennessee Valley Interstellar Workshop is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to bringing together solid, passionate individuals in order to discuss topics relevant to (eventually) turning humanity into an interstellar species. It is a forum of multidisciplinary individuals working together to facilitate solving interesting technical, economic, and social problems in our way.
The Tennessee Valley Interstellar Workshop is about taking humanity to the stars. This is a dream that may not become a reality for another millennium. Why, then, should some of the most visionary and intelligent people in the World (!!) gather at a hotel once every eighteen months to discuss the challenges and opportunities of interstellar travel? Because we must. We are compelled by our nature to think positively about the future of humanity in a beautiful yet extremely hostile universe.
