50 years after the Space Age dawned with the launch of Sputnik 1, we gathered in the Campanile Hotel to commemorate the event.
Satellite 1 ran for a single day, and was hailed by many as "small, but perfectly formed". With just over 70 adult members, Satellite 1 established our series' motto of 'Science Fiction, Science Fact, Science Fun' by having two programme streams, one devoted to talks and panels, the other to games and interactive items, with several items devoted to the real-world issues and impact of space exploration.
Guest of Honour
Ken MacLeod, a local author noted for his hard SF stories featuring socio-political commentary and believable alien races.
Sydney Jordan, a Dundee comic artist best known for the Daily Express' SF strip 'Jeff Hawke', who was unfortunately unable to attend.
