Time Travel with NASA: 6th annual NIAC

Abstract:
Travel 40 years into the future as NASA investigates revolutionary concepts for space exploration at the 6th annual NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts (NIAC) meeting in Seattle, Wash., on October 19-20, 2004.

The meeting is free and it is open to the public. Those making the trip will get a glimpse at future possibilities of space exploration, with presentations on innovations like a sail driven by antimatter for deep-space exploration, the use of tailored force fields to build massive structures in space, and the use of biological molecules to create nano-scale robots.
