↑ Return to 2016 programme

Thursday 27 October

The third day of Reinventing Space 2016 featured ideas beyond LEO – applications and looking to the far future.

The Beyond Earth Orbit session will explore the plans to expand beyond Earth orbit, both for exploration and exploitation of new resources. Resources from the moon, Mars and Near Earth Asteroids all have great promise for the terrestrial economy and space propulsion, but what are the stepping stones to achieve this?

Fundamental to a number of the new commercial opportunities are technology breakthroughs. Laser communications, cubesat propulsion, solar sails, on-board advanced data processing all promise to deliver enhance the performance of the next generation satellites.

13:25 keynote-greenKEYNOTE: Jim Green
Director, NASA Planetary Science Division
Planetary science missions have revolutionised our understanding of the origin and evolution of the solar system. Planetary scientists are also enabling human space exploration by studying and characterising planetary environments beyond Earth and identifying possible resources that will enable safe and effective human missions to destinations beyond low Earth orbit. In this keynote Jim Green will discuss a variety of approaches and technologies that are needed to continue to make new discoveries in planetary science while also making human exploration of Mars more affordable.
