Daniel Faber is an engineer and entrepreneur with over 20 years of space technology leadership. He worked in the core engineering team building and launching over a dozen satellites for environmental monitoring, telecommunications, astronomy, and human habitation. As a serial entrepreneur, his first company developed a unique mining instrumentation technology utilizing gamma ray spectroscopy, following which he worked on nuclear fusion reactors and then broadband communications for Antarctica. As CEO of Deep Space Industries, Daniel secured millions in financing from VCs and governments and grew sales from zero to nearly $10 million, successfully changing global perceptions and regulations around space resources and revolutionizing the way the industry views water-based satellite propulsion systems. He founded Orbit Fab to build the propellant supply chain in space and make satellites reusable, so we can stop throwing away billions of dollars’ worth of fully operational assets every year.
Daniel holds an engineering degree from UNSW in Sydney, Australia, a post-graduate certificate in Antarctic studies from the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand, and a double-MBA from the Anderson School at UCLA and the National University of Singapore.
