Let's Launch Some Rockets!
Garden Home Park

Are you interested in learning and experimenting with rockets? We're going to take a field trip to Garden Home Park and launch a few of our model rockets. Feel free to bring one if you have one. This park is only big enough for class 1 model rockets with engines sizes B and C.

I'll be bringing my riptide and big bertha. I also have an HD spycam I'm planning to mount for some awesome video footage.

If you want to listen to our broadcast, we're on Facebook Live https://www.facebook.com/KnowledgeMavens/.

Do you want to learn and share your passion in a supportive community? Knowledge Mavens is an ethos of sharing, creativity, and inspiration.

Our Meetup provides an opportunity to "Show and Tell" followed by a feedback and Q&A. You'll have the opportunity to share with our channels such as Meetup, GitHub, YouTube, and Facebook to connect with more passionate people.

The second half of our session we'll collaborate on new topics. The winner wins an award for the most interesting topic and the opportunity to share in an upcoming session.

FutureTalk with Ariel Waldman + Happy Half-Hour
New Relic

The Hacker's Guide to the Galaxy

› Please RSVP via Eventbrite HERE

Don't panic: the next big science revolution isn't just for asteroid miners or CERN scientists. Just as science fiction has often shown the way to future inventions, the act of hacking is now generating prototypes that act as footholds for future explorations, discoveries and epiphanies in science. From the collisions of subatomic particles to the explosions of supernovas, this presentation takes you on an unusual trip through the weird, whimsical and fun ways to explore the final frontier.

Ariel Waldman is the founder of Spacehack.org, a directory of ways to participate in space exploration, and the global instigator of Science Hack Day, an event that brings together scientists, technologists, designers and people with good ideas to see what they can create in one weekend. She is also a fellow at Institute For The Future.

› Doors will open at 5:30 for a 30-minute networking happy half-hour! The food, beer and drinks are provided by Bellagios and New Relic. The presentation will begin right at 6p.

› Stay tuned for the latest developments and updates on this and upcoming events by joining our Meetup group, New Relic FutureTalks PDX, and following us on Twitter @newrelic.

› FutureTalk is brought to you by New Relic in collaboration with TAO

Yuri's Night Party with PSAS
Portland State University Engineering Building

The Portland State Aerospace Society (PSAS), a student aerospace group at Portland State University with decades of experience in high-powered amateur rocketry, is hosting a Yuri’s Night Party, in honor of the international space holiday.

Fifty-five years ago, Yuri Gagarin was the first person to travel into space when his spacecraft completed one full orbit about the Earth on April 12, 1961. In honor of his great accomplishment, parties are held worldwide every year to celebrate humanity’s progress in space.

As part of this international celebration, PSAS is hosting a “space race” with challenges and games, technology displays from local rocketry and space groups, engineering labs open to visitors, and food and beverages provided. We will also be screening the film First Orbit, a reconstruction of what Yuri would have seen on his journey.

The event will be held on April 12 from 6:30-9:30 in the Engineering Building of PSU (1930 SW 4th Ave Portland, OR 97201, at the intersection of SW 4th and College). All ages are welcome; there is a recommended $10 donation per person at the door.

Please join us as we celebrate the past, present, and future of space travel!

Launch Loop - PSU Physics Seminar
PSU Science Building 1 Room 107

The Launch Loop can launch thousands of tons per day to high orbit for dollars per kilogram. It stores momentum and energy in a long (5600km) and narrow (5 cm) hypervelocity (14km/s) iron rotor. The Launch Loop is electrically powered and deployed from the ground, protected from space debris by the upper atmosphere, and can be built with existing engineering materials for a few gigadollars. Near term spinoffs will include power storage and transmission, permitting global peak usage leveling.

Server Sky - Data Centers in Orbit
TERAC, TVF&R Training Building

Monthly meeting, Technology Radio Amateur Club

Server sky is a proposal to build large dispersed arrays of 7 gram paper-thin solar-powered computer satellites and launch them into 6400km earth orbit. Arrays act as large parallel computers, as well as sparse phased array antennas, transmitting thousands of communication beams simultaneously to ground receivers and other arrays in space.

Server-sat arrays use unlimited space solar power, and operate outside the biosphere. The environmental impact of power generation and heat disposal is tiny. Other surprising biological effects will need study. Earth can return to what it is good at – green and growing things – while space can be filled with gray and computing things.
