Description

NASA’s Kennedy Space Center has undergone a significant transformation since the conclusion of the shuttle program in 2011. In less than five years’ time, the Center is now home to four manned space flight programs and a fifth program is expected to follow. KSC has firmly re-established itself as the place to launch humans into space. However, this transformation did not happen in a vacuum. Fifty years of cultural, political, policy and bureaucracy had to be systematically addressed –and are still being addressed- to allow this transformation to benefit all the users of the Kennedy Spaceport.

Join this diverse panel for a vibrant discussion on how today’s KSC balances both the government and commercial sector’s interest while preparing for the future of the spaceport.

Top Three Takeaways

  1. Changing a spaceport takes a village: culture change is everyone’s responsibility as KSC matures into a multi-use spaceport.
  2. How does the Center protect for the government interest while ensuring that the private sector can operate successfully? Every partnership – every agreement- builds on the goodwill of past performance.
  3. What is the future vision of the spaceport? As the market and launch rate continue to mature, what do multiple federal and state agencies and the commercial space sector need to be cognizant of?
