SUCCESS OF COMMERCIAL SPACE VENTURES – AN INSPIRATION FOR THE NEXT GENERATION
Thursday 29 September 12:30 – 13:30
Guadalajara hall 8
In the last several years, numerous commercial companies have begun to revolutionize the space industry. The success of reusable rockets, the development of private spaceships, and the potential for a privately owned and operated space station are signs of a new age in space exploration. The move from purely government led space endeavors to privately executed ones is currently underway.
While the approach to space missions is changing, one question remains: Is working in the space industry more appealing to millennials in various engineering fields than other technology companies in other industries with shiny campuses in Silicon Valley? How can the space industry as a whole attract bright talented people to help overcome the challenges of these new missions and the modern technology that comes with them?
