Last updated on Tuesday, March 27, 2012

(WEST LAFAYETTE) - A Purdue student group will explore the future of human spaceflight and exploration with experts from private aerospace companies at its annual conference.

The Spring Space Forum on Thursday will include the director of Lockheed Martin's human spaceflight programs, the director of ATK's advanced launch systems and two retired astronauts now involved with aerospace missions operations.

The school's Students for the Exploration and Development of Space chapter sponsors the annual event.

This year, they paired with NASA to attract speakers.

After each speaker, a panel of space experts will lead audience members in a question-and-answer session.

The forum will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Purdue's campus and is free and open to the public. A live stream will also be made available.
