Unlike in the Apollo era, the private sector now has considerable space capabilities and in the last five years, tens of billions of dollars have been invested in space programs by companies, individuals and investment firms. Consequently, NASA is increasingly using public private partnerships (PPPs) to enable space exploration. This panel will examine when PPPs make sense, what types of PPPs are best for exploration applications and what does the commercial market for exploration hold for the next twenty years.
Bio: Tony Darnell is the owner of Deep Astronomy website and a host for the same hangout channel in Youtube. He has worked in the field of astronomy all my life, his first job was at a school district planetarium in Boulder, Colorado. With the exception of a stint in the Army in the 1980’s he has worked in many aspects of astronomical research.
Most of his time has been spent writing software to retrieve, process and analyze data taken from telescopes. He has worked with data from some of the world’s largest ground-based and space-based telescopes: from the four meter Blanco telescope in Chile to the Hubble Space Telescope.
Astronomy education has always been his passion and he has written articles for DeepAstronomy.space website and produce astronomy videos for YouTube on the DeepAstronomy channel.
