Democritization of Space

This session begins with stories of Dr. Aldrin's memories of his father walking on the moon in 1969... and progresses quickly to the changing space economy of cubesats and plans for a permanent human presence on the Moon - and Mars. Learn how the Aldrin Family Foundation works with schools today to provide unique hands-on space education experiences for young students. Dr. Aldrin also talks about the Space Operations Online Program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. The complete Q&A with participants is included at the end as well.
