Emerging Technology – Super-Heavy Space Lift: Implications and Applications

24 May
Share this page

The latest in our series of webinars, looking into areas such as propulsion, mission analysis, environment control and life support systems.

The development of families of super-heavy launch vehicles can enable exciting new ways of using space both for space science and for commercial applications. These include in-space manufacturing, energy from space, and ultra-large aperture telescopes.

This webinar will feature a series of short talks highlighting some of the key enabling applications of super-heavy launch vehicles, followed by open discussion and debate with participants. Aside from science and technology, there are other considerations for this new capability, for example; how do we avoid monopolies on access to space?; how do we ensure resilience in case a single launch provider fails?

Agenda to follow.
