See what happens when we put a handful of space enthusiasts together to compete for your applause! The SpaceSLAM will consist of several 10-minute scientific talks in front of a non-expert audience. The focus lies on an entertaining presentation. The medium of presentation can range from a traditional talk to dance choreography, a stage play or a self-composed song. The audience is the jury and elects the winner! Join fellow New Generation Space Leaders and special guest Bill Nye, CEO, The Planetary Society, for an evening of entertainment and science.
