At the Florida Chamber Foundation’s Future of Florida Forum, Frank DiBello, President & CEO of Space Florida and Mark Wiese, Gateway Logistics Element Manager from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, gave more information on the Artemis program, NASA’s plan to put the first woman on the moon by 2024.
The Artemis program will also seek to put the first human on Mars and develop support systems for both endeavors.
The economic impact to Florida’s Space Coast has enormous potential as NASA will team with the private sector and international partners to develop the material support needed for these missions.
“In the next decade, we expect over 10,000 satellites to be launched to support our insatiable demand for bandwidth globally and to connect all of the people in the world who are now unconnected to the internet,” said Frank DiBello, President and CEO of Space Florida. “More importantly there will be companies going up into lower earth orbit to create research and manufacture value in space. Our vision is for Florida to be the economic center of that activity.”
