More than 2.37 billion people are without food or unable to eat a healthy balanced diet on a regular basis. World hunger on Earth, exacerbated by COVID-19, is at an all time high even as we look to a bright future for deep space exploration.
Join us for an illuminating fireside chat with leaders across government, space, food technology, and longevity spheres on the critical need for innovative food technologies to sustain people on Earth and in space. This forum topic will discuss the historical impact of human exploration for advancing food tech and the movement of our times for food innovation to solve world hunger now as we rise to meet the needs of future space explorers.
