A new era in space exploration is underway: an era driven by commercial human spaceflight. From suborbital tourism to commercial orbital research stations to commercial lunar expeditions, humans are poised to reach into space in unprecedented ways. This discussion will explore how the new space era is reshaping our view of humanity’s relationship to space exploration.
