For Season 4 we're renaming the podcast to The Space Economy. With the space economy generating close to a third of a trillion dollars globally each year and headed to being a trillion dollar economy, it's clear more focus needs to be put on what's driving the economy. We'll explore all aspects of the space economy including the trends, opportunities and challenges. Each week we'll examine some aspect of the space economy by relaying to you the stories that matter.

Canadians Asked to Guide Future Space Exploration Activities
On this weeks episode of the Space Economy podcast we have a special presentation for you.
The Canadian Space Agency is currently consulting with the public on its future space exploration activities. For those 'in the business', this is yet another consultation process, one of many they've experienced. For students and the younger workforce, this could be a generational opportunity to effect policy, and they shouldn't miss the opportunity.
Mike Gold Update on the Artemis Accords and Space Resources
On this weeks episode of the Space Economy podcast we have a Future In-Space Operations presentation by Mike Gold with an update on the Artemis Accords and some insights the future of space resources.
Most people interested in commercial space and the development of space resources should be familiar with Mike Gold. Gold became a special advisor in late 2019 to then NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. And just over a month ago he was named as a NASA associate administrator for Space Policy and Partnerships.
Kymeta ‘Magical’ Metamaterial Technology
On this weeks episode of the Space Economy podcast our guests are Lilac Muller, VP Product Management and Jon Maron, VP Marketing of Kymeta.
The company provides mobile internet solutions with their terminals connected to satellites and cellular networks. Today we'll be talking about the innovations the company has made in metamaterial made antenna's, the comms services they are now bundling with their terminals and what adding low Earth orbit constellations will mean for everyone wanting "comms on the move."
New Canadian Space Agency President Lisa Campbell
On this weeks episode of the Space Economy my special guest is Lisa Campbell, the new president of the Canadian Space Agency. Ms. Campbell joined the Canadian Space Agency just months into the pandemic and started at the beginning of last September. We talk about some of the challenges the pandemics created, but also some of the opportunities it's presented. As well, a discussion of the CSA wouldn't be complete without at least one budget question.
Please note we did have one very short sound issue during a portion of her answer to my first question, but otherwise there were no issues.
The Artemis Program and the future of lunar surface manufacturing
On today's episode of the Space Economy podcast we have final episode of our annual Winter Series.
So far our Winter Series, focussed on NASA's return to the Moon with the Artemis program, has discussed the NASA VIPER robotic precursor mission to Moon's South Pole, the Lunar Gateway's first habitable element, the Habitation and Logistics Outpost, originally known as HALO but which has been combined with Maxar's Power and Propulsion Element to create what is now being called the Comanifest Flight, and in our last episode, a look back to help us with the way forward where we heard about Increasing Science-Operations-Engineering Synergism in the Apollo Lunar Exploration Program: Perspectives for the Artemis program.
Today, we're going to look forward in time. We're going to learn about one company's ideas of using lunar materials for manufacturing. The ideas presented here are going to take some time to develop. Hence, why this episode is a look forward to when the Artemis program has progressed much further than what we've discussed so far.
The presenters are Ron Polidan and Alex Ignatiev from Lunar Resources a startup formed three years ago. Their presentation is titled Lunar Surface Manufacturing. You can download the presentation from our website.
The Past is Prologue – From Apollo to Artemis
What are the lessons that can be learned from the Apollo program as we forward to the Artemis program from a science and engineering operations perspective?
On this weeks Space Economy podcast we have another Future in Space Operation episode continuing our Winter Series related to NASA’s return to the Moon with the Artemis program.
In our first episode we focused on NASA’s VIPER robotic precursor mission to Moon’s South Pole. In the second episode last week, we focused on the Lunar Gateway’s first habitable element, the Habitation and Logistics Outpost, originally known as HALO but which has been combined with Maxar’s Power and Propulsion Element to create what is now being called the Comanifest Flight.
Today our focus is a look back to help us with the way forward. James Head of Brown University discusses Increasing Science-Operations-Engineering Synergism in the Apollo Lunar Exploration Program: Perspectives for the Artemis program.
Most of the people who listen to this podcast weren’t born when the Apollo missions took place. And now some are working on the Artemis program. This episode provides insights from the Apollo program for Artemis participants as they prepare for humanities return to the Moon.
