Satellite 7 is the latest in a series of science fiction conventions with a strong science element that have been running in Glasgow since 2007. Each event has a different theme: this time we celebrate the planet Jupiter, in Art Deco / Rocketpunk style. Come and join us for a fun-filled weekend of talks, panel discussions, workshops and games.

Ed Buckley R.I.P.

We are really saddened to hear of the death of Ed Buckley. As well as being a long-time Glasgow fan and wonderful artist, Ed was a Satellite Stalwart – attending and contributing to the programme at every Satellite convention to date – and of course our Guest of Honour at Satellite 5. He will be hugely missed.

How the Light Gets In

How the Light Gets In is an on-line festival of philosophy and ideas, with live debates, music and comedy. Three will be 80 events and over 100 speakers, including Satellite 4 Guest-of-Honour, Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell.

It is being held on the dates we had planned to run Satellite 7 until we were forced to postpone to next year – so we know your diaries are empty!
