ABOUT THE SPACE ECONOMY
To tell you about the Space Economy Show we have to first explain why the Space Economy. Why the Space Economy is actually pretty straight forward. Space is humanity's destiny. Together, our species will live amongst the stars. First, though, we've got to pay for the proverbial gas to get there. And so the Space Economy Show was brought into this universe by the curiosity of an oddball arrangement of dreamers, Star Trek (Next Gen of course), FireFly, sci-fi nerds and closet academics to investigate the business, culture and financing philosophy that will enable permanent human settlement of the Moon, Mars and beyond. We are delighted to be joined by viewers from around the globe, from thought leaders, to real live rocket scientist, to Venture Capitalist and everyday people who are just curious and seeking straight forward, scientifically sound, information on how humanity will reach low earth orbit, inhabit the solar system and spread out amongst the heavens.
We welcome you to join us. In each episode, we strive to take a deep dive into the minds of the most influential savvy and successful businesses, regulators, scientists and technologists in the Space Economy. Together we explore the innovations these government leaders are creating, what role the private sector plays in Space, and how humanity will and is fueling the next generation of startups, businesses, entrepreneurs, and innovator's pursuit of Space. Hope on board. All are welcome and we have plenty of Space.
