Another rich and diverse meeting

We held the fourth annual Advanced Propulsion & Energy Conference over Zoom again this year, as the pandemic made it impossible for us to gather as we normally would, on the MIT campus. We met for five days last week, from January 18-22.

Charles Chase moderated the first four days of the meeting, which were dedicated in order to Action, Light, Vacuum Fluctuations, and Gravity. The fifth day was a joint session with the Society for Scientific Exploration, and a special journal issue will follow. See the meeting agenda here.

We’ve uploaded video of each talk here on our YouTube channel, and over the next week we will be adding commentary, introductions, and final high-res videos for each presentation.

This intro to Friday’s session is a nice place to start, if you missed it- Charles lays out some of the pleasures and difficulties of doing innovation.
