The New Generation Space Leaders forum will provide a place where promising young space professionals (35 and under) will be able to learn about the space business and advance their careers.
The Technical Track conference sessions will offer an opportunity to hear from both government and industry leaders in space technology development and learn about recent advances from presenters. The sessions will constitute a series of 20-minute-long talks, with some of the featured speakers including Stephen Jurczyk (Associate Administrator of the Space Technology Mission Directorate at NASA), Samer Halawi (CEO, Thuraya), dr. Brad Tousley (Director, Tactical Technology Office, DARPA), Christina Bain (systems engineer, Lockheed Martin) and many others.
