Join us for an exploration of our space journey from the earliest V2 rockets to today's deep space probes. Join us for an exploration of interstellar travel and future ideas.

Mark Johnston has been fascinated by the night sky ever since he 'discovered' Saturn with his first telescope at age 10.  12 telescopes later, he is a NASA Solar System Ambassador, an award-winning speaker and member of numerous Astronomical societies.  He has given hundreds of presentations on astronomy and shared the night sky with thousands of people in his public outreach star parties.

In this presentation Mark reviews our journey to explore space, from the earliest V2 rockets to today's deep space probes. He'll then explore the challenges of interstellar travel and future ideas for travel via Warp Drive, Worm Holes, Antimatter engines and more.   Will we get to the stars? Join Mark for this talk and find out.
