THE ROLES OF THE PRIVATE AND PUBLIC SECTORS IN ACHIEVING THE NEXT GENERATION OF SPACE FLIGHT

The Launch Pad, booth #B79 - Hall 3

America’s activities in space has always been a public-private-partnership as NASA, from its earliest days, engaged private contractors in the design and implementation of its missions. This model has evolved over five decades, especially as capabilities and funding has shifted back and forth between partners. This session will involve government officials who plan, promote and regulate space-related activities speaking alongside venture capitalists and private-sector space entrepreneurs as we discuss the “trillion dollar space economy”.

Panelists to be announced
Open to all visitors

2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

Global Cooperation to achieve our mission

The Launch Pad, booth #B79 - Hall 3

The International Space Station have demonstrated how cooperation across national borders here on earth can contribute to shared success in space. Going forward, international partnerships will play an integral role in projects such as Gateway and other ambitious missions of exploration and discovery. We are inviting senior officials from several of the world’s most prominent space agencies to discuss their vision of how this global cooperation will be structured, and the role they will play individually and collectively in the next era of space travel.
