What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx.

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is call TEDxNASA, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDx NASA event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.


This is more than just putting a group of famous, and not-so-famous names on a stage to entertain an audience. NASA is synonymous with innovation and thought leadership, TEDx is about ideas worth spreading. The TEDxNASA event will provide an opportunity to leverage the strengths of both organizations to present a unique opportunity for the exchange of game-changing ideas.
