About the event
The space sector is forecasted to be $1 trillion in revenue by 2040 and we are on this trajectory. The sector is at an inflection point as we were in the early 1990s when the internet started to make its mark.
Space tech is all around us. Over 3000 satellites now in orbit are enabling us to use banking apps, grow wine grapes better in climate change, track goods around the world and prevent bridges from falling. Mobile phones are now being developed to connect to satellites.
Come and hear how satellite tech is used to solve problems on earth and in Space. Speakers are from Airbus, European Space Agency, Raytheon NORSS and Realsafe Technologies. Also you'll hear how the North East achieved the highest revenue growth rate in the UK since 2019!
LUNCH IS INCLUDED.
