Quote from Ron Sparkman, Founder UpportunityU
"While volunteering and attending the 32nd Space Symposium, I was able to see first-hand what the Space Certification program does for these major technologies that are influenced or inspired by the space industry. These products help people in a variety of ways, from air purification to improved sleeping, and I'm excited to share our passion project of UpportunityU.com as a part of the program so we can spread space advocacy and science literacy on a grander scale."
