Tuesday, October 27, 2015
8:00PM to 9:00PM
Hameetman Auditorium, Cahill Building (Building 17)
No registration required

The past few years we have seen the emergence of several space startups - private companies with the ability to make a profit while operating extraterrestrially. These companies can be divided into three categories: Earth-based companies developing products for space, space-based companies providing services back on earth, and companies that operate entirely off-world. All face challenges associated with operating in space, but each has unique difficulties when it comes to securing funding and developing a business plan. Tethers Unlimited, Planet Labs, and Planetary Resources, who represent the entire spectrum of space startups, will join Professor Sergio Pellegrino to discuss what is needed to succeed as a space company.

Please join us for this informal discussion on these and other issues most concerning you. Priority given to students and postdocs.
