“All these things that may seem big and impossible … We can do this. Peace on Earth — No problem. It gives people that type of energy … that type of power, and I have experienced that.” – Anousheh Ansari, one of the earliest space tourists in history.
 
Seeing the earth from space is one of the most transformative experiences a human being can have, but to-date, fewer than 600 people have been to space. You’re currently more likely win a Nobel prize than to go to space.
But change is upon us – truly, this time. And it has implications.
Join Rachel Lyons, the Executive Director of Space for Humanity, as she leads a discussion on the rapidly evolving world of space travel, the impact that it’s had thus far, and what the future could mean for us as individuals, as well as society as a whole. What would it be like if you saw our planet from space? How would it change you? And how would you make an impact using your spaceflight?
