6:45pm - 7:00pm The New Era of Space Travel - Astronaut Training on Your Mobile
Monday Jun 4
How does the public have a new role in space exploration - and why should they even care? Mazdak Nassir is the cofounder of Space Nation, a Finnish startup is making space available to everyone. They have already started by offering astronaut training through a mobile app designed in partnership with real NASA astronaut trainers and will be sending the first trainee to space already next year. But Space Nation is also bringing space back to Earth, making the development of space and the mindset of space travel relevant to people everywhere on the planet. Mazdak will tell you why people have a renewed interest in space exploration, and why space is important also to people that will never leave the planet.
