The exploration of outer space, long the domain of states alone, is now being fueled increasingly by the private sector. Rather than large corporations, these efforts are generally undertaken by individuals, millionaires who made their fortunes elsewhere.
This shift impacts the economic significance of space, while interstate geopolitical competition continues in parallel. To understand more about these fascinating issues, how they relate to our everyday life, and to unleash the inner geek in you, please join the Next Generation Foreign Policy Network for an exciting discussion with key leaders from all sectors of space exploration and exploitation.
