There is a massive technological transformation going on around the world today. Space is now being seen as a turning point in modern technology as we quickly discover more and more ways to benefit from it. Alongside this excitement, new players are entering the field. No longer is space seen as an exclusive industry reserved only for national agencies, but instead as an accessible playground where all space enthusiasts of any discipline have an important role to play.
This new movement in the industry has created a new vision in which we are all included. It is a vision of a united space program inclusive of all people, may it be government, industry, academia or the general public. It is an exciting time to be in the space industry. Not only do we as a nation have a thorough history in space, but also a promising future, and it is important that we include everyone in this excitement. It is time we “Bring Space Down to Earth.”
