Has anyone gone to these events? if so, can you tell us what went one? Was it worth it? Did you find it interesting and well attended.

I am heading over to the Boston one in September.

Some of the previous Future Forums were advertised as closed to the public and all, I believe, required pre-registration (Boston included).

You can see the agendas, read prepared speeches and see photos from prior Future Forums on NASA's website.
