You may have heard that Prof. Andrew Pakhomov has been found guilty in the case that was pending in the Alabama courts. We regret that conclusion to this long and confusing case, and believe that it is inappropriate and will be overturned.

However, ISBEP 6 Must Go On as scheduled and be conducted in the same businesslike manner as in the past, when Prof. Pakhomov was present to chair the meeting. Drs. Frank Mead and Claude Phipps will be the co-chairs. We believe that the spirit of ISBEP, and the dedication to Beamed Energy Propulsion is more important than the status of a particular person. We encourage you to contact us directly if you have any questions concerning this conference, and don't hesitate to encourage your friends to attend!

The scope of ISBEP was always open to applications of beamed-energy propulsion other than astronautics.  Among such areas of application, which hopefully will have more room for discussion at ISBEP 6, is Micronautics, propulsion of nano-vehicles, the field, where BEP can be of a great help.  It is worth noting that the subject of Micronautics was discussed at ISBEP from the start, when  Tokyo Tech professors Shiho and Yabe presented their ground-breaking work on x-ray propulsion.  See more ...
