Will declining launch costs, advances in technology and rising public-sector interest position space exploration as the next trillion-dollar industry?

It’s been just over half a century since humans left footprints on the moon and during that time, human space exploration has largely centered on manned low-Earth orbit missions and unmanned scientific exploration. But now, high levels of private funding, advances in technology and growing public- sector interest is renewing the call to look toward the stars. Join the panel as they discuss what next for the space economy – the growth potential, the risks and the opportunities for investors.
