AstroCafé: The Privatization of Space

Hear talks by innovative entrepreneurs while enjoying drinks aboard the ship. This speaker series highlights cutting-edge tech start-ups that are paving new paths to space—from mega-scale 3D printing and affordable planetary access to new health monitoring solutions for long-term missions to Mars. Select evenings will conclude with stargazing on the flight deck. 

Next up… Friday, November 3

Anup Singh is the co-founder and chief science officer of InnaMed, a Y Combinator–backed startup that is developing a connected, portable blood-testing device for chronically ill patients. InnaMed was one of the three winners of the 2016 NASA iTech Cycle I competition. Its device is designed to monitor the health of astronauts on multiyear missions, such as expeditions to Mars. Anup has co-authored multiple peer-reviewed publications in the fields of microfluidics and point-of-care diagnostics and is passionate about developing and commercializing novel healthcare technologies. Hear more from Anup about his innovative work creating devices for the future of human space travel.

Then meet Joseph D. Fargnoli, co-founder of the New York Space Alliance, and learn about the space start-ups and service providers making New York the center of space entrepreneurship.
