AstroCafé: The Privatization of Space

Hear talks by innovative entrepreneurs while enjoying drinks aboard the ship. This speaker series highlights cutting-edge tech start-ups that are paving new paths to space—from mega-scale 3D printing and affordable planetary access to new health monitoring solutions for long-term missions to Mars. Select evenings will conclude with stargazing on the flight deck.
