An exciting announcement is that NASA Astronaut, Raja Chari, will be the opening keynote speaker. He will talk about his own career path and address the insecurities that he faced and how he overcame them. Raja is one of the three astronauts selected to fly to the International Space Station this coming Fall 2021!
