This evening we had the official opening ceremonies for the International Space University (ISU) Summer Session. There were a lot of important people and good speakers, including the president of the university, the mayor of the city, and Peter Diamandis, who founded the X-Prize (and also co-founded ISU).
Our former professor and director at George Washington University Space Policy Institute was there as well, since he is one of the distinguished lecturers, and has been involved in the program since the beginning.
The event was hosted on the terrace on the 9th floor of city hall, which had beautiful views of the city. It was a great way to spend the evening and a great way to start the program.
