The 14th Reinventing Space Conference is delighted to announce that this year’s Sir Arthur Clarke Awards will be hosted by the conference on the occasion of its Gala Dinner which will formally close RISpace.
The Dinner will take place at 8pm on Thursday 27 October 2016 at the Royal Society in London.
The Arthur C. Clarke Foundation has opened nominations for the 2016 Awards. They recognise and reward those individuals and teams that have made notable or outstanding achievements in, or contributions to, all space activities. Better known as ‘The Arthurs’, they have been presented annually since 2005.
Unlike many other awards, nominations can be made by the general public. A nominations panel made up of senior representatives from all areas of the space sector will ensure that all areas are covered.

“The road to the stars has been discovered none too soon. Civilisation cannot exist without new frontiers; it needs them both physically and spiritually.”
