A crowd of around 500 - leaders from the Space industry, participants of the International Space University program, or ISU, personnel from Florida Tech, NASA and other local Space Companies, as well as the general public - gathered this summer at the Gleason Center for the Performing Arts, on Campus at Florida Tech. The audience came to hear from speakers at the first TEDx event resulting from collaboration between the ISU, NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, and the Florida Institute of Technology.
