STRATEGIC SPACE

Space has a lot of stakeholders.

Some of us are aiming for Mars and the Moon, while others want their feet firmly planted on Earth. Some consume data from the sky in order to make life and death decisions, while others simply want a ride-share taxi from a night on the town (pre-Covid). Some fight for 'people' in space, while others think 'ones-and-zeros' of software and robots should be our primary explorers.
