Experts in space flight will visit Costa Rica in March for a United Nation-sponsored meeting. Some 200 participants are expected.
One of those scheduled to attend is Takao Doi, a retired astronaut from Japan who is director of the space applications section of the U.N. Office for Outer Space Affairs.
The sessions will be in the Hotel Crowne Plaza Corobicí from March 7 to 11, according to the Ministerio de Ciencia, Tecnología y Telecomunicaciones.
Those in space-related businesses in Costa Rica can sign up to attend the event with the ministry.
Franklin Chang Díaz, the Costa Rican-U.S. astronaut, was credited with having the country picked as the location for the international meeting.
