On November 13, 1948, H.E. Ross and R. Smith presented to the Society an original paper a manned satellite (space) station. Then, on November 20 1998, just one week after the 50th anniversary of that presentation Zarya, the first element of the International Space Station, was launched. On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the start of ISS construction, and marking the 70th anniversary of that ground breaking paper the Society is organising a one-day Forum. This event will feature an exciting program on the legacy of the pioneering BIS paper, what the ISS has accomplished over the past 20 years and what plans for its future may hold.
The symposium will be chaired by Dave Shayler and Gerry Webb and presenters confirmed so far (in alphabetical order) are: David Baker, Mark Hempsell, Bob Parkinson and Dave Shayler.
