The 5th International Workshop on LunarCubes

Where The Experts In Lunar Science & Exploration Meet

Are you a Scientist? Engineer? New Space Entrepreneur or Investor?

A new era of entrepreneurship and rapid technology advancement is sweeping the space industry, transforming science fiction into science fact. The commercialization of space travel and exploration offers tremendous opportunities in building the superhighway and supporting infrastructure that will host future generations of space explorers.

Join us for the 5th International Workshop on LunarCubes where we bring together the best space scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and investors from around the world to discuss, explore, and redefine the technology, collaboration and commercial strategies required to make the most of this unprecedented opportunity.

No other conference allows you to network and brainstorm with industry experts and thought leaders in the same way you will be able to do at Cubes 5, where you will have a supportive platform for sharing your innovations and ideas directly with the developers and decision makers who are leading the way in CubeSat technology.

Imagine working on a design challenge alongside a group of scientists, engineers and technologists and coming up with a revolutionary solution that changes the face of space exploration. You will also have the opportunity to speak directly with space investors and entrepreneurs about the benefits of your technology and services.
