Fragment of a welcoming speech at the III conference on non-rocket near space exploration in 2020.
“The first time I learned about Dr. Unitsky's General Planetary Vehicle project was several years ago. This idea immediately impressed me with its futurism and scope. In my opinion, such qualities as the ability to think outside the box and discover new facets of our universe are inherent to real researchers and inventors.
I am sure that the concept of non-rocket space exploration will benefit scientists, businessmen, and students who are focused on fundamental innovations and deep knowledge of the world. I encourage investors, specialists of various fields, and university students to seriously think about all imaginable and unimaginable unique ways to solve pressing problems on Earth.
We are delighted that Sharjah Research Park supported the 2020 conference. We believe that this event is a platform for cooperation of various stakeholders and way to discover new benefits provided by the universe. We believe in global peace. It is important for people from many regions of the world to participate in the discussion and solution of the tasks primary for humankind and to prove themselves in those developments needed by young generation and society in future.
I am convinced modern civilization is capable of creating the GPV. In my opinion, it is always necessary to start with an idea. The great significance of the conference is that people have the opportunity to study the announced project thoroughly and to discuss its further development. It is important to have open innovation. It is also worth attracting a widely specialized audience from private businesses, investment companies and various communities in order to consider the proposed programs thoroughly.
As a human race we have the ability to perceive and promote innovative and creative concepts that seem not entirely realistic today but may be quite feasible with due time. The GPV is just the kind of such project, it originated from an idea and will eventually become a product aimed to save both humanity and the universe”.
