1st International Conference on Problems in Space and Time In Modern Science

Dates: 1989-03-14 - 1989-03-15 9.9 (3 decades 4 months ago)

Where: St. Petersburg, Russia Venue: Pulkavo Observatory


Held in Leningrad prior to having its name changed back to St. Petersburg, this conference was an historic event for two reasons: because it was the first in a continuing series of such conferences, but perhaps more importantly because it was the first Russian event to invite scientists "outside the iron curtain" in many years. Bryan Wallace and Bob Fritzius were privileged guests at an otherwise exclusively Russian conference. A pre-conference meeting and banquet was held at the House of Scientists on Monday, March 13, though the conference officially ran from Tuesday, March 14 to Wednesday, March 15. With about 40 scientists in attendance, Bryan Wallace gave a well-received talk on the development of Modern Science, culminating in some space-science problems engendered by use of the special theory of relativity.
