Taking giant leaps in tecknology and travel with CNN Future Summit: World In Motion

MUMBAI: The sky is no longer the limit as 'CNN Future Summit' takes off for 'World in Motion'. Richard Quest leads an illustrious panel including Buzz Aldrin and current space tourist Anousheh Ansari for another landmark hour-long programme from Singapore that takes CNN’s viewers deep into the future and outer space.

In a world in which we are constantly seeking that extra thrill, space tourism offers a unique opportunity. Quest and his distinguished guests explore how close we are to this reality of a family vacation in space, in addition to looking at the possible benefits of a driverless car, hypersonic air travel and other areas which indicate that science fiction is rapidly becoming science fact.

“This second installment of CNN Future Summit is simply an unmissable event. ’World in Motion' explores some of mankind's most extraordinary goals, from the real promise of space vacations to non-polluting cars and hypersonic flight,” says CNN International’s Senior Vice President Rena Golden. "From online discussions, through podcasts, vodcasts and November's televised debate from Singapore, this promises to be the definitive interactive debate on the future of travel.”

CNN Future Summit is a two-year multi-media program produced in association with the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), which aims to stimulate global discussion on new developments in travel, medicine and health, communications, the environment, new habitat and the implications of these changes for the future of mankind.

Ken Low, STB’s Assistant Chief Executive (Brand and Communications), says, “As a global meeting place for distinguished thought leaders, where events such as the recent International Monetary Fund and World Bank Boards of Governors meetings as well as the 117th Session of the International Olympic Committee are held, Singapore is pleased to host this CNN initiative.

This discussion on the future of transport is pertinent, as Singapore is a global transport hub with the world’s best airport and busiest seaport as well as the regional base for research into alternative energy sources such as bio fuels, wind turbine and fuel cells. Singapore is also looking into developing SpacePort Singapore, which will offer zero-gravity and space simulator flights. We look forward to a stimulating debate and the sharing of great ideas that will shape the world of tomorrow.”

Through the dedicated website: http://cnn.com/futuresummit, viewers around the world will be able to explore the views and interactive with the remarkable list of leading explorers, scientists, philosophers, designers, entrepreneurs, futurists, authors and journalists.
