Galaxy Forum China 2015 — Beijing

Wednesday, 9 September 2015 (2-5pm) @ NAOC, Beijing, China

Theme — Astronomy From The Moon: Further Establishing the New Frontier

The International Lunar Observatory Association (ILOA), with the goal of advancing Galaxy 21st Century Education in every class, is organizing Galaxy Forum China 2015 – Astronomy From The Moon, on Wednesday 9 September 2015 at the multifunction hall at the Headquarters of the National Astronomical Observatories – Chinese Academy of Sciences (NAOC), in Beijing, China.

Below are some of the highlights from the program, which will be focused on providing inspiration and resources for education, exploration and enterprise to a public audience including Beijing’s leading high school science and humanities teachers. — Please contact ILOA for Participant Registration or Media Badge information (info@iloa.org / 1-808-885-3474 / China Mobile 86-136-2106-9047)

ILOA: Independent International Moon Missions for Science and Education Cooperation and Commercial Cis-lunar Enterprise Development

The ILOA, pursuing a series of Moon-based observatory missions to complement Earth-based and Space-based astronomy, seeks to advance Galaxy Imaging for 21st century astronomy and education with its ILO-1 flagship 2-meter radio antenna mission to Malapert Mountain 86ºS 2.7ºE near the Moon’s South Pole – as well as with the ILO-X precursor mission aboard a GLXP lander, and a Human Service Mission to the ILO-1 / robotic village new world frontier.

ILOA now collaborates with the NAOC Lunar Ultraviolet Telescope at Mare Imbrium 44°N 20°W aboard the China Chang’e-3 Moon Lander, conducting operational Astronomy / Galaxy observations from the Moon, and intends to build on the pioneering successes of this project.

More than 40 years since the Far Ultraviolet Camera / Spectrograph operated on the Descartes Highlands by NASA Apollo 16 Commander and ILOA Director Emeritus John Young in April 1972, ILOA is drawing together resources from across the planet to reclaim humanity’s place as a multi world species.

ILOA sponsors the Galaxy Forum program around the world to advance 21st century science and education and to identify and secure support for ILOA mission realization.
