Pictures of Technical Presentations and Banquet




During June 10 and 11, six technical sessions were conducted with 20 presentations in all aspects of space resources science and technology. In addition, Bob Richards from Moon Express, Chris Lewicki from Planetary Resources, and Jim Keravala from Shackleton Energy participated remotely and provided an update on their individual company plans. At the end of both days, roundtable discussions allowed all participants to discuss current projects and suggest future opportunities for technology development and flight missions.
