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.
