THE UNIVERSE - YOURS TO DISCOVER

Doesn’t that sound exciting – and it’s true!  Our Universe is filled with enough fascinating stuff to fill billions of light years and the Dragon*Con Space Track wants to help you discover it.

Robert Goddard, the father of modern rocketry, said -

“The dream of yesterday is the hope of today

and the reality of tomorrow”

The dream of yesterday has been the countless ages that mankind has looked into the heavens and wondered.  What are the lights in the sky?  Why do they move and yet return the same each year?  And eventually, when will we be able to go there?  The hope of today is to continue to expand our knowledge.   Commercial space ventures.  Protecting Earth from comets and asteroids.  A human presence on Mars.  Finding other Earth like planets.  The reality of tomorrow is as wide as our own imaginations.  Faster than light travel.  Terra-forming other planets.  Interacting with intelligent species from other worlds.  Parallel universes.  These are only a few of themes the Space Track has, and continues to, explore but there is so much more!

‘Space’ today encompasses almost the full spectrum of sciences and engineering.  Astronomy?  Cosmology? Sending humans into space?  Those are still relevant but now there’s also AstroPhysics, Exo-Biology, Exo-Geology, specialized photography, Astro-Navigation, Aero-engineering, propulsion technology, Astro-Chemistry, human physiology, adaptive techniques for anything and everything humans need to live off planet and the list goes on.

The scope of Space is as vast as the universe itself.  We invite you to bring us your dreams and hopes of space and we’ll tell you how they could become the realities of our future.

We are the Dragon Con Space Track – We bring the universe to you!
