"Impatience is a virtue"

Wednesday 9 May 2018, 2.00PM

Speaker(s): Nick Appleyard

Nick leads European Space Agency's programmes to help companies who are developing sustainable space-using services.

Across the 22 ESA Member States, it is UK that sees this economic opportunity most clearly, and is investing most strongly to build a new sector of commercial satellite services. And from these services a wedge of new, independent private sector activity is being driven into the space programme itself. Space is no longer the sole preserve of governments. It is now becoming a business.
