News From ISTAT

Complementing another fabulous — though at-times sweltering — Paris Air Show, ISTAT once again hosted a lavish reception and offered an onsite chalet for members and guests throughout the duration of the air show, as well.

Members and invited guests gathered at the Palais Brongniart in Paris at the conclusion of the air show's first full day on 19 June to network, catch up with colleagues and forge new relationships, all while enjoying the scenery provided by this historic and awe-inspiring location, a former 19th century stock exchange.

Onsite at the air show, more than 1,000 attendees took advantage of the air conditioning, outdoor shade and welcoming atmosphere at the ISTAT Chalet to enjoy food and beverage, network, conduct business and a front row view of the air show. Although temperatures in Paris soared to more than 37o C that week, the chalet provided a cool refuge for members and guests.

In author Eric Frank Russell’s 1947 short story, Hobbyist, he described what was then a dystopian and far-fetched idea — using printer-like devices to create structures out of thin air, atom by atom "like brick after brick to build a house." At the time, it was purely speculative fiction and was as remote a possibility as intergalactic space travel is today
