Wednesday 25 October 2017

The second day of Reinventing Space 2017 is dedicated to access to space and commercialisation.

Access to Space concerns the new vehicles, technologies and operational concepts that are radically reducing the cost to reach orbit. Small launchers, reusability and commercial rideshare partnerships, all promise to open up the space frontier and are the focus of this session.

As important as the technology which is driving the development of space, are the new and innovative business plans which are being adopted by new and established space companies. This session features papers from new start-ups, companies with a bold new commercial vision and those with new market predictions/forecasts.

12:05 PANEL: THE STRUGGLE FOR AN INTERNATIONAL LEGAL REGIME ON SPACE RESOURCES

It can be regarded as “the next big thing” in space, or even more adequately “the gold mine”: the extraction of mineral or other resources (like Helium 3) from the Moon and other celestial bodies.

Established space and extraction companies are struggling already with a vibrant start-up community for pole positions – although real space mining seems decades in the future.

Nevertheless an aggressive debate has been evolving, which legal regime, if any, should be put in place for that purpose or whether existing international should be maintained and further elaborated. This panel will cover this controversy and put all positions on the table.

  • Christina Giannopapa, Department for Relations with Member States, European Space Agency
  • Emma Kerr, Spacecraft Lifetime Analysis, University of Strathclyde,
  • Peter Marquez, Vice President, Global Engagement, Planetary Resources
