To Get to Mars, We Need Project Management

Oct 06
A glance at the possible problems and solutions being created in space


Space technology is undergoing a rapid expansion. Space lasers, holidays in space, and space mining may sound like science-fiction but they are closer to reality than you may think. Yet, project over runs, accidents, and even health problems in humans will all become real risks that more and more companies and government agencies will have to deal with. We'll talk about where space is headed, and what issues will soon potentially be facing some of you.


  • How we are polluting space and how it could be cleaned up?
  • The seamless interface between science, technology, engineering, mathematics and project management. 
  • The growing space section and its need for good business practices
