How to Leverage Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the Global Space Ecosystem
Space — once considered the final frontier and only accessible to a select few — is now home to the most dynamic and innovative ecosystems on the planet. While not every person will get to ride on a rocket or see one lift off, everyone — students, young leaders, entrepreneurs, small businesses and professionals — can become contributors to the $424B and growing space economy.
Despite recent excitement around SpaceX and NASA, you may not be aware that the technologies that enable space access and exploration have real-world applications that shape our daily lives. In fact, every community, infrastructure and aspect of modern life on planet Earth is dependent on space-related technologies, like weather forecasting, manufacturing goods, global communications, healthcare, and farming.
