Confirmed talks so far include The Chinese Space Programme by astronomer Robert Law, and Timekeeping on Mars by Nik Whitehead. We also feature our customary talk from Glasgow SF artist ED Buckley. This time he plans to give us A not-entirely-serious telling of the state of spaceflight at this moment. We can hardly wait!

On a more serious note, we'll have a presentation from Colin McInnes on Advanced Space Concepts, focusing on developments in commercial space services, whilst Andy Nimmo will give us his perspective on the prospects for human settlement of Mars.

In a lighter vein, Phil Wellings will present another instalment of his popular Inadvisable Rocket Science, and Simon King presents Killer Klips — a collection of humorous short videos culled from the internet.
