Not every person will get to ride on a rocket, see one lift off, or build a satellite or payload, but everyone — students/teachers, young leaders, entrepreneurs and professionals — has the opportunity to contribute to delivering space technology solutions that we depend on every day here on Earth, like more accurate weather forecasting, new materials for manufacturing goods, advanced global communications, healthcare innovation, and precision farming.
