Can’t wait to join the conversation at SPACETalks 3.0? Read on for a look into our panel discussion ‘Servicing the Final Frontier – The future of in-space and earthly logistics and supply chains’!

Demand and supply in the space sector are growing exponentially! According to DHL, the number of active satellites in the next ten years are expected to reach 50,000 – that’s 20 x more than the number of active satellites today! And, it’s not NASA, ESA or the UK Space Agency leading the charge – giants like Amazon, Facebook, Samsung, and SpaceX are the ones making this mark on the world of space technology! 

As mentioned in our last panel blog post – the only way for the space industry to become truly commercialised is to open its doors to other sectors. With big-name private companies, including Facebook and Amazon, getting involved in the space industry this statement is becoming reality.

But, as the space sector expands, it becomes more and more complex. With 128 million pieces of space trash spinning around, 5 billion USD private investment in the space sector and Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin plan to build a space hotel, it is important that we start having conversations on the future of in-space and earthly logistics and supply chains. 

Which is exactly what Cosmonauts will be doing at SPACEtalks 3.0, through our panel discussion ‘Servicing the Final Frontier – The future of in-space and earthly logistics and supply chains’. This panel plans to address the following questions, providing invaluable insights into how to provide successful and sustainable space logistics and supply chains in the future:

• How will supply lines be planned and managed?

• How can we make transporting objects into space more sustainable?

• How can we curb and reverse the accumulation of space debris?

The incredible line-up of speakers who will be providing insight into this complex topic are:

Daniel Carew, Principle of IQ Capital 

Amanda Campbell, Head of Net Zero at Satellite Applications Catapult

Dr. Hira Virdee, Founder & CEO of Lumi.space

Professor Rob Buckingham OBE, Director of RACE (Remote Applications in Challenging Environments) at UK Atomic Energy Authority

Tobias Lin, National Space Strategy implementation Policy Lead at Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) – Space Directorate

If you want to dive into this topic and understand what the future of space logistics looks like, then take this as a formal invitation to join us on 27th April at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus for SPACEtalks 3.0!

Designed for space-related industry professionals, decision-makers at aerospace, commercial organisations, start-ups, governmental agencies, and academia, SPACEtalks is a space tech event shaped around discussions about the industry’s current trends.
