Dan Faber
Man has mined a variety of resources over the years, including diamonds, gold, iron, copper and coal. But nothing quite as daunting as mining asteroids in space no less! Deep Space Industries is taking on the enormous challenge of prospecting, harvesting, processing, manufacturing and marketing in-space resources. DSI's Dan Faber will present.
Jim Cockrell
Cube Quest Challenge is a NASA Centennial Challenge competition. The mission is to develop small satellites able to orbit the moon and travel to deep space. This is NASA's first ever in-space challenge and has a $5.5 million prize.
