A Panel Discussion By MIT Enterprise Forum Northwest

Presented in partnership with the Economic Development Council of Seattle and King County

Today, we’re at the dawn of a fascinating new era in commercial space. The space frontier is opening up to private citizens and industry. Up to 11,000 private citizens are expected to take suborbital spaceflights in the next decade, and interplanetary entrepreneurs are redefining the business of space. Join us for an exciting evening of conversation as we discuss the rise of the private space sector with some of the industry’s leading thinkers and executives from Virgin Galactic, Planetary Resources, and Space Angels Network- all against the backdrop of the museum’s inspiring, full-scale exhibit of NASA’s Space Shuttle Trainer.
