2021 February – The Future of NASA And Space Exploration Under the Biden Administration
February 9 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm JSTFree
With the ending of the Apollo program and the retirement of the Space Shuttle in 2011, many may have been concerned about next steps for NASA and the exploration of outer space. However, we have watched how private companies have thrived and been able to discover new and innovative opportunities in space, while NASA has remained at the forefront of enabling this flourishing industry. Now with the Biden administration in the cockpit, what is the future for space? During the February CEO Insights luncheon, we will welcome special guest Mr. Garvey McIntosh, NASA Attaché for Asia based at the U.S. Embassy Tokyo.
Garvey will be sharing his thoughts on what NASA has learned from the past, how it is conducting it current missions, and its plans for the future. He will address the importance of international cooperation with Japan and other nations around the world. In addition, with last year’s 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, he will discuss what the future holds for the exploration of the solar system and beyond.
Come join us for a great chance to see the intersect between science and business. Quoting the famous astronaut in the animation Toy Story, “To infinity and beyond!
