Looking to Startups to Help Secure Space
The commercial space sector has succeeded in driving down the cost of space-based technology while massively increasing its capabilities. The U.S. defense apparatus has traditionally favored legacy industry partners, but it’s shown a growing interest in turning to startups and new space companies to secure the space domain for the U.S. and its allies, and we’ll hear why and how from Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Space Acquisitions and Integration, Frank Calvelli.
Asking and Answering Humanity’s Biggest Questions
After six years heading up NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, Thomas Zurbuchen is a familiar face to anyone who has followed the agency’s many interplanetary and orbital missions. Now ready to move on to his next chapter, Zurbuchen will speak to how NASA, its mission, and the science it performs are changing — but they’re more important than ever.
Building Out Commercial Operations in Orbit
A new crop of companies are working on establishing permanent commercial operations in orbit and on the moon. But they likely won’t be able to do it without partnerships with government and defense. We’ll talk to Steve Jurczyk, cc-founder and CEO at Quantum Space, and leaders from ispace and the United States Space Force, about how these partnerships can foster a thriving orbital economy.
