TVIW Symposium on The Power of Synergy
October 23-25, 2018
Y-12 New Hope Center, Oak Ridge, TN

TVIW, in conjunction with Rather Creative Innovations Group, will hold a symposium with the focus on safe, fast, and affordable human development within our solar system. Please check the link to Special Symposia above for more information.

We have added a new feature, the Soapbox.  The Soapbox is a section of our website where anyone can post content of general interest to the interstellar advocacy community.  Check it out!

TVIW will present its sixth interstellar symposium on November 10-13, 2019, in Wichita, Kansas, hosted jointly by Wichita State University and Ad Astra Kansas Foundation.  A Cosmosphere tour will be available on November 14.

We have added a photo gallery with pictures from the 2016 and 2017 symposia.  We haven’t organized the photos or applied keywords to them, so if you’d like to help with that task please send a message to info@tviw.us to volunteer.  Otherwise, take a look at the photos, comment if you like, and enjoy!
