              The future of space commerce is dependent on supportive public policy. The rapid evolution of the commercial space sector is forcing governments to write new laws that not only clarify the rules of doing business in space, but also provide sufficient incentives for space entrepreneurship. In this session, a panel of policy experts will discuss some of the critical policy developments of the past year, and engage in a dialogue of what more must beRead More

              Spaceports will rely on spaceflight tenant companies and/or spaceliners to anchor their basic economics as a transportation hub. Spaceports, however, have to develop a range of additional revenue streams to really sustain their activities profitably over the long term. This panel discusses the revenue options under consideration or being implemented by spaceports around the country. In some instances, the additional revenue streams are being implemented prior to spaceflight operations! An additional element of this panel will beRead More

              NASA pioneered imaging technology to study the planets and stars, as well as the home planet. That imaging technology has transitioned to vital medical equipment, energy exploration, deep ocean fishery and salvage, and a range of health monitoring devices. What is the leading edge of imaging capabilities and what are the emerging new possibilities? This session will explore the challenges and hopes for imaging technology for space and Earth applications.
