Description

As private space companies like SpaceX and Blue Origin have blasted into public consciousness, entrepreneurs and scientists are identifying new industries and business opportunities that could emerge as we get further in space than ever before. Companies are forming around fields like asteroid mining, satellite technology, space tourism and more--and venture capitalists are investing. During this conversation with The Verge’s Science Editor Elizabeth Lopatto, Planetary Resources CEO Chris Lewicki discusses asteroid mining and how it could enable future space exploration initiatives.

The event was recorded at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco for their weekly NightLife program.
