As the possibilities for understanding the universe increase, so do the challenges. Every technological leap forward opens up a new set of questions. At the AIAA Space and Astronautics Forum and Exposition (AIAA SPACE 2015), the best minds from across the country and around the world will present the newest developments, help solve the weightiest problems, and try to map both the universe and the future.
AIAA SPACE 2015 will address questions like these:
- Commercial cargo and crew space transportation vehicles are drawing closer to completion. Will there be sufficient market demand to sustain the competitors?
- Will new weather satellites be ready for launch before the current, aging fleet breaks down?
- How are satellite users, both civil and military, meeting cybersecurity threats?
- Is there a surplus of available launch vehicles, and will more affordable services ever become a reality?
In addition to the technical presentations that will enhance our ability to explore the universe via satellite imagery, robotic exploration, and human travel, an exciting schedule of keynote addresses and panel discussions will help us understand the policy, education, and economic challenges facing space exploration and development.
