EARLY DAYS IN THE NEXT GENERATION SPACE RACE

16:00-17:15 Pavilion 5, Conference Hall 5.3


Many in the sector believe the current space race has the feel of the Internet economy in the 1990s: characterized by unrestrained creativity coupled with the uncertainty of business models only occasionally bumping into economic realities. Which approaches are showing the most promise, and how will the private sector and new state entrants impact the future of space travel?

Highlights

“Manned space flight is a platform for developing technologies that humanity will use to protect us both from space and in space, to search for resources, and to determine the next areas for development in space exploration.”

Vitaly Lopota
President, S.P. Korolev Rocket and Space Corporation Energia

“I think what the desktop did to computing many years ago, now satellites and small satellites are doing to the space industry. They are going to disrupt the industry in ways that we have never imagined.”

Dr. Susmita Mohanty
Co-Founder and Chief Executive Office, Earth2Orbit

“There is a business race [in the area of space exploration] between governments, and the business race today is the race to use space and to transform space assets into business.”

Francois Auque
Executive Vice-President of the Defence and Space Division, Airbus Group

“Space activity, space business, space cooperation is above a short-term crisis that can arise in the world. (…) Even during what we call the Cold War, the US and Russia were to continue to cooperate.”

Jean Loic Galle
President, Chief Executive Officer, Thales Alenia Space

“The main thing is not to compete with one another, but rather work together, because [space exploration] is a supranational task – it transcends business and it transcends politics.”

Igor Komarov
General Director, United Rocket and Space Corporation
