Delving into the realms of space business has been my enduring passion – from orchestrating the launch of objects into space to navigating the intricacies of dispute resolution when inevitable challenges arise. If you’re keen on exploring the fascinating intersection of space, business, and technology, I highly recommend checking out The New York Times Magazine’s “The Space Issue” from November 12th.
Within the issue, you’ll encounter engaging discussions on diverse topics such as space junk, the ever-watchful “eyes in the sky,” and the prospect of mining precious minerals beyond our planet. One particularly noteworthy section features interviews with Air Force personnel at the Space Systems Command in Los Angeles, a crucial division within the Space Force dedicated to planning and acquiring cutting-edge technology. This holds a special place in my heart, as it harkens back to my early legal career when I served as an Air Force captain at Space Systems.
To give you a heads up on this read, turn to page 52 of The Times, where it provocatively states, “Have you ever looked up at the night sky with curiosity, wondering what’s out there? Here’s an answer that might surprise you: Business opportunities.” The cosmic landscape is rife with possibilities, and this insightful read sheds light on the intriguing intersection of the celestial and the commercial.
