    Space Exploration for Inspiration and Profit

    Plenary Panel

    Space Exploration for Inspiration and Profit

    Wednesday, 11 September 2013 – 0800-0930 hrs

    Debate on where to go next in space continues in the scientific community, and even within and among agencies. Meanwhile, the private sector has said “we’re going,” both for inspiration and for profit. How do we merge these approaches? Where are the synergies? How can one enable the other? How can government agencies work together with the private sector to achieve goals? How can technologies derived be leveraged for future efforts?
