TEDxVorobyovy-Gory — «Cosmos» — took place on Saturday, March 19th, 2011 at Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics in Moscow. The year of 2011 named in Russia as The Year of Astronautics, also it is the year when russians celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first manned space flight commited by Yuri Gagarin and the 70 anniversary of his birth. This is why we devote our first conference in 2011 to the topic of Cosmos. Senior speakers from different fields of science, business and art gathered together to share their ideas about exploration of space. 12 talks reflect their achievements, inspirations, wishes and scientific discoveries.
About TEDx, x = independently organised event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
