UPDATED: Mon, Jul 16, 11:34AM
Since SDCC 2017, a new era of discovery has emerged. Budget priorities have dramatically changed and resources for space exploration have surged. This means the most powerful rocket ever launched (the SLS) is now on track to deliver a 25-metric-ton payload (including humans) to the moon. The moon will serve as a stepping stone toward eventual missions to Mars and deeper into the solar system. Panelists Cady Coleman (retired NASA astronaut), Kathleen Coderre (habitat systems engineering lead, Lockheed Martin Space), and Marshall Smith (director of cross-program systems integration/exploration systems at NASA), along with moderator Steve Broback (cofounder, Dent the Future), will discuss the goals, the timing, and the logistical needs for this exciting new age of exploration.
