Key Highlights

[00:01 – 17:14] Get to Know the Space Industry

  • The first wave of the space economy was started in 2017 when SpaceX achieved reusability with its launch vehicles. This opened up the doors to send more assets into space, which has resulted in experts believing there will be 150,000 satellites in orbit by the year 2057.
  • The second wave of the space economy is focused on building infrastructure and orbit to support all the volume of satellites and assets up there. This includes developing refueling hubs for satellites, data relay systems, and moving things around in space.
  • Daniel discusses timelines and points out that there are already some investments in place, as well as opportunities for new investment in space infrastructure and applications.

[17:15 – 26:39] Insider Updates and Space Travel Facts

  • There are a number of factors that contribute to the high price of space launches, including geopolitical tensions and the need for reliable and reusable vehicles. Additionally, the new space economy is producing a number of talented entrepreneurs, and there are a variety of geographies where private investments in space are being made.

[26:40 – 29:38] Stepping into the Space Industry
