SpaceCRAFT – The Introductory Session: A Primer on SpaceCRAFT 
Dr. Greg Chamitoff will lead this workshop: “SpaceCRAFT aims to be the platform on which humanity's future off-planet Earth is designed, built and tested. Given the technology we have today and the direction it is going, we will surely experience the future in VR well before we build it.  This gives us the opportunity to make sure that we get it right.  With NASA guidance and support, SpaceCRAFT will be released publicly in the form of a Space design competition that will include university students around the world.”

Moderator, Andrew Shulkind, Cinematographer and Co-Founder, HeadcaseVR
