Episode 5: Dawn of the Entrepreneurial Space Age

Dawn of the Entrepreneurial Space Age

During the Apollo era the government drove technology development for space, but now the commercial world does. Space entrepreneurs and traditional aerospace OEMs give people the access to information and services they need. But government has played a major role in the development, growth, and deployment of these solutions. From advanced telecommunications capabilities—including television, Internet, telephone, and secure communications—to high resolution imaging, the entire commercial space economy is built in conjunction with governments across the world. What tech will drive future space development, and how will government adapt and respond? What is government’s role in future space technology, and what is a successful engagement model?
