Glasgow, 25-26th July 2009
Guest of Honour: Iain M Banks
Following in the footsteps of Satellite 1, we are pleased to announce Satellite 2, a 2-day convention marking the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
Following in the footsteps of Satellite 1, Satellite 2 is a 2-day science fiction convention featuring the usual mixture of talks, games, panel discussions, and quizzes typical of a Glasgow Convention. There will be a real ale bar, a dealers’ room, with SF bookshop At the Sign of the Dragon, and a small art show.
July 2009 marks the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, and so some of programme will have a lunar theme, ranging from discussions of how the moon is portrayed in SF, to the chance to fake your very own moon landing
Satellite 2 is extremely excited to have Iain M. Banks as our Guest of Honour. Iain needs no introduction, but for anyone not familiar with his work – Welcome to Planet Earth!
We will be updating the site regularly as our programme develops and watch out for the Adventures of Roger. Roger is our convention mascot and has been travelling far and wide to promote Satellite 2.
We look forward to seeing you next July in Glasgow!
