The recent successful powered flight into space of VSS Unity (SpaceShipTwo) by Virgin Galactic reminds us that the dynamic entrepreneurial spaceflight sector has arrived, and is here to stay. We're building on the momentum of Apollo and the shuttle program. However, the bigger picture and long-term impact of NewSpace goes well beyond the headlines. Please join us for this day-long conference, with topics to include:
  • Understand more about NewSpace and its potential impact
  • Understand what NewSpace activities are, and the required skill set for those involved
  • Share the excitement and experiences with those who are engaged in NewSpace activities
  • Learn more about the ongoing NewSpace efforts, their future, and near-term opportunities
  • Bring your questions for speakers and participants--they are there to inform
  • Network with the speakers, experts, aerospace professionals, educators, students, enthusiasts, business professionals, and other attendees
