On the Launchpad:
Return to Deep Space

May 16, 2017
Washington, DC

Nothing excites the mind and sparks our curiosity like space. As programs like New Horizons push to the edge of our solar system, private companies have reignited the next generation space race. And as the red planet has grabbed our attention, what combination of players and technologies will have to come together to make a successful mission to Mars?

The Atlantic will survey a shifting landscape of new technologies, exploring the cosmos by gathering experts on the growing space industry and the future of space and extraterrestrial travel. Where will the next space race take us, what are the challenges facing the mission and what do we need to know, build and create to get there?
