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.

The Journal of pSeudoscience

After critical acclaim for Volume 1, Satellite Conventions is looking to publish another edition of The Journal of pSuedoscience. As before we want to educate discerning fans with information on the latest pScientific discoveries (e.g. perpetual motion machines, galactic travel by mushroom). Submissions should be of a pSuedoscientific nature, the more amusing or outrageous the better.

Please see here for submission details and a link to Volume 1 of the Journal.
