Exploring space firsthand seems more elusive now than ever before.
In the last twenty five years, more than twenty NASA human space exploration programs have been terminated and two presidential strategic initiatives have been vacated, resulting in wasted opportunities, resources, and time.
Despite these setbacks, efforts are underway to build a more sustainable space exploration program as stated by the recently released US National Research Council study assessing the goals, capabilities, and future trajectory of NASA's endeavor. In addition, the advent of cheaper, advanced technologies and private sector innovation are leading to more globalized approaches to space exploration. Now is the time to catalyze international cooperation and reclaim our aspirations to discover the far reaches of space, our final frontier.
Please join a forum of international thought leaders from business, academia, and government, discussing opportunities for international and commercial collaboration to build a more sustainable space exploration program.
