Café Scientifique Dubai: The Future of Space Exploration
In the last few years, we’ve discovered the Higgs Boson and gravitational waves, photographed the first black hole, landed probes on a comet, discovered hundreds of new exoplanets and took spectacular images of Pluto. Join us as we discuss what the next decade holds for the future of space exploration – including exploring Mars and new star systems.
Everyone is welcome - science nerds and science novices. The focus is not on lectures but on conversations and meeting new people.

About Cafe Sci:
Cafe Scientifique is a social meet up group that meets to discuss the latest ideas in science and technology. The idea is to talk science, but outside an academic setting. The first Cafes Scientifique in the UK were held in Leeds in 1998. From there, cafes gradually spread across the UK and the rest of the World.
