Better Satellite World Podcast: Summer Fun - School's Out - Meditation and Other Things I Didn't Learn in School About the Space Industry

In this third year of our Summer Fun podcast series, we again talk with industry leaders and some of space and satellite’s most interesting people to find out something about them you may not know. This year’s question is: “What did you learn about the commercial space & satellite industry that you didn’t learn in school?” The final episode of this series is based on the July edition of the New York Space Business Roundtable. In this episode, we bring together industry heavyweights who share a common exercise, or practice. Each meditates and has discovered great lessons through the insights it brings. As we expand our space-faring capacity and venture further and longer into space, the concept of time, our longing for home, and whatever else we create or find created already will surely require new adaptive tools. And the only place that adapts in the human species, as each wisdom tradition has taught us for centuries, is the mind.

One of the primary truths of learning and ESPECIALLY learning in the commercial space and satellite industry, is that it is an endless endeavor. No narcotic expands the mind like learning about space, satellites and the power of the individual to find their strengths not “out there,” but “in here.” We are in a moment in time when we must shift spiritual orbits. Take giant leaps that will help us adapt to the transformations to civilization, both at home and beyond.
