Thursday 4 October 2018, 18:00 – 19:00
Location: Bremen Exhibition & Conference Center – DLR Hall
Tom Enders, CEO of the aerospace company Airbus, will speak about business opportunities in space.
Today, space – be it Low Earth Orbit or even outer space – is not anymore an area reserved to states and their institutions. We see an increasing amount of private ventures investing massively into new space capabilities, setting new records in the coming years in terms of investments, product / services development and launches.
For more than 10 years Mankind has had an orbital outpost in Low Earth Orbit – the International Space Station ISS. But now LEO is not an area only to discover anymore it has clearly become a part of Earth’s Economic area. Orbital Economy is a reality, it happens now, we need to reinforce it and we need to expand it further out to GEO and to the Moon.
