MONTHLY BUZZ | The Space Age: Closer Than We Think?

Space is looming large in the minds of many these days. SpaceX achieved its first crewed US water landing in 45 years; China launched 3 satellites into orbit to map Earth, dark matter and more; missions to Mars launched from 3 different countries (US, China and UAE) in July alone.

As exciting as space is, many may feel it is far removed to our lives and work here on Planet Earth. But this a common misconception and one we are partnering with Moonshot to put to rest.

The reality? Space goes beyond rockets and satellites to span all industries, current and emerging. Many technologies already in existence need only be space-enabled, instead of invented from scratch. How do we manage our health when in space? How do we feed ourselves sustainably? These questions are just as pertinent outside of our atmosphere as they are on the ground.
