Fifty years ago, on 26 of April 1967, the launch of San Marco satellite from italian's spaceport of Malindi made Italy the third Country in the world, after the Soviet Union and the United States, to put a satellite into orbit around the Earth.
The Conference will be not a commemorative event, but it would like to provide a great visibility to the progress of science and industries accomplished in these 50 years and how Italy is a leading nation in several european activities (Launchers, Satellites and Satellite Applications). Economic growth and Space Economy will be the main topics.
Roberto Battiston, President of the Italian Space Agency (ASI) and several CEOs of space industries and associations (Thales Alenia Space, Telespazio, Leonardo, Avio, AIAD) already confirmed their attendance.
