The only club at UC Berkeley dedicated to promoting the exploration of space.
Every week, the Space Exploration Society at Berkeley hosts student-facilitated Space Forums: a discussion space with topics regarding space, exploration, and the universe! Anyone interested is welcome to attend.
They will meet regularly on Wednesdays 5:30-7pm (starting at Berkeley time) in 131B Campbell Hall. The first 10-20 minutes will be delegated towards general SESB updates (upcoming events, opportunities, etc).
Bring friends. Bring opinions. We want this to be an open discussion.
Hope to see you all then!
**Anyone can lead upcoming forums! Please contact Kareem Shaik or email us if you are interested in facilitating a topic of your choice!**
