BUSINESS TAKES TO SPACE

09:00-10:15 Congress Centre, Conference Hall B2
International space services market revenues are estimated at USD 300–400 billion, with the sector growing by about 5% per annum. As practice shows, space technology is an innovative business that can be successfully developed not only by governments but also by private companies. There are a number of examples where investment in space technology and research has not only generated strong returns, but also found broad application here on Earth. How ambitious should business be in exploring outer space and investing in related new technologies? What are the prospects for private business and how might the private sector reshape the space industry? What might be the impact of expanded activities relating to space exploration on humanity at large?
