A Star Journey towards building a Community of Shared Future for Mankind
II. Brief Introduction
Six million years ago, when the homo sapiens appeared on this planet, Earth, they were curios about what they saw in the sky and and had a strong desire for what they are in the distant Universe. Walking out of the earth and getting into space have been the dreams of the mankind since then. Until recently, we made some progress in space exploration and got a better understanding to the Universe due to the adavancement in science and technology. However, as the solar temperature gradually increases and the earth's environments are getting worse, the future of our human beings must be among the vast Universe. Taking this rare opportunity, the top talented scientists in the field around the world will be together and discuss the possible future of mankind millions of years later.
