June 28  & 29:  Secret Space Program Breakaway Civilization, Redwood Hall and Event Pavilion

secret space program

After a successful 2011 conference in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, the conference now comes to San Mateo!  The Secret Space Program is a non-profit volunteer-powered organization dedicated to educate & activate the public about what is going on beyond the obvious… 

Is there a shadow and top secret space program?  What is in space now and what can be? How does space influence all of our lives?   Are there Cosmic Cultures and Civilizations, will they land, are they visiting us, are they under us? If so, how will this impact our lives? Midst all the myths and legends, speculations and interpretations, theories and perspectives, fears and “research”, how does one discern the truth? With the spins and twists presented in books, documentaries, conferences and speakers, you might find your answers during this unique conference.  For more information, visit
