Entrepreneurship

Space is rapidly growing into an exciting ecosystem for business. In this podcast we hear from entrepreneurs, executives, investors and others about the many opportunities that exist. This podcast is produced in partnership with the International Space University.

Episodes

My guests this week are from Exo-Space, a company offering a platform for on-orbit data processing, so basically edge computing in space. That is becoming quite a popular topic for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that we are generating an ever increasing amount of data in space. Let’s hear all about it!
