In this 50th anniversary year of the first Lunar Landing, we are pleased to welcome NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine to share insights into NASA’s space exploration activities and its collaboration with commercial and international partners.
The leadership of space projects and the sources of finance are evolving dramatically. The space environment is no longer the sole preserve of government agencies. Private companies, supported by government, wealthy entrepreneurs, and venture capital, have entered the exploration domain and are investing substantially in technologies for satellites, rocket launches, space tourism and more.
Please join us to hear from the head of NASA, which is at the forefront of this dynamic environment, exploring new ways of going to the moon and turning to commercial industry for partnerships.
