The Future of Space with Winston A. Beauchamp

On Wednesday afternoon, November 2nd, The Explorers Club will proudly host Mr. Winston Beauchamp, Deputy Undersecretary of the Air Force for Space, and Director, Principal DoD Space Advisor (PDSA) Staff. He oversees our entire space portfolio, including GPS, launches, and satellites.

There are some very interesting things going on in Space right now. With the industry in flux, Beauchamp’s team is conducting an entire "holistic review" of the entire space platform, and where we are going in the future. He will share stories on the ongoing ‘space renaissance,’ plus the importance of international collaboration, and inter-agency collaboration efforts.
