International Space Station Research and Development Conference / Space Policy Outlook panel, hosted by ISS National Laboratory, NASA, American Astronautical Society
For more than 20 years, the nation’s space policies have enabled humans to live and work continuously onboard the ISS. Research leveraging this powerful platform is advancing scientific knowledge and demonstrating new technologies that facilitate long-duration exploration into deep space and benefit life here on our planet. Building on this experience, the next decade provides the opportunity to further accelerate U.S. leadership in space. This panel will discuss how current U.S. space policy will influence the next decade of space-based research, the role of public and private partnerships, and the development of a thriving economy in low Earth orbit. Panelists include Pam Whitney, Staff Director, House Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics, Committee on Science, Space, and Technology; Joel Graham, Professional Staff Member, Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation; Mary Guenther, Director of Space Policy, Commercial Spaceflight Federation; and Michael Gold, Executive Vice President for Civil Space and External Affairs, Redwire.
