Rather than any one technology, *people* drive cycles of innovation. The past two decades have seen advances for the space workforce, with non-traditional players bringing out-of-the-box expertise and perspectives to missions, data-streams, and science beyond Earth’s atmosphere. For the next giant leap, we need an interdisciplinary approach to space, incorporating expertise from the arts, medicine, law, energy, agriculture, and more.
At its start, the space industry was home to only a small set of governments. Today, you don’t even have to be an aerospace engineer to take advantage of space! Join us for a conversation on how the space industry can serve as a new test-bed for groundbreaking design, and inform our lives and workplaces in surprising ways.
