NExT Event - Foundation for the Future of the American Space Race

As the new space race heats up, hear from Tim Chrisman, executive director of Foundation for the Future, as he talks about the needs for the U.S. to be competitive in the space industry on a global stage.  As entrants from around the world jockey to become the next leaders in space, Tim will share about his growing national program that will prepare the next generation of space industry professionals and how space companies will onboard employees through the program.  According to some estimates, within the next two decades, ventures like space tourism, the harnessing of solar energy, and space mining will propel the overall value of the space economy to $1 trillion.
