Space Marketing Podcast with Steve Wolfe from Beyond Earth Institute PART 2

Join Izzy as she delves into PART 2 of the future of space exploration with Steve Wolfe, President and Co-founder of the Beyond Earth Institute. 

The Beyond Earth Institute is a non-profit think tank focused on preparing for the future of humanity beyond our home planet. They conduct research, provide analysis, and offer recommendations on space policy proposals with implications spanning from the near-term to the next hundred years.

Policy plays a pivotal role in shaping the trajectory of space development, and understanding its dynamics is crucial for what awaits us in the cosmos. In this interview, we explore what the Beyond Earth Institute is doing to pave the way for human habitation and work beyond Earth.

In Part 1, we got to know Steve Wolfe and his journey to space policy. Let’s head into part 2 of our interview with Steve and begin with the question that will be at the heart of our space future and the Beyond Earth Symposium in Nov 1-2.
