The commercial space industry wants the government and the financial community to invest in building the infrastructure needed to expand the modern economy into space. This includes building new spaceports on Earth, space stations in orbit, and transportation corridors to the moon. To accomplish this goal, the space industry must first convince private industry, policymakers, and the general public that they will benefit from this investment.

• Why bring the global economy into space?
• What is the short- and long-term vision for the space economy?
• How will this be managed?
• How will interests be protected in space?

This is the first in a planned series of “Future Space Economy” webcasts designed to educate audiences about the opportunities, challenges, risks, and rewards of expanding economic activity off-world. This webcast series will highlight specific activities in space, ranging from healthcare, research, mining, tourism, and energy. This webcast is the “101” session to get you started!
