Space is expensive. It will require enormous investments, total adaptability, innovation and experimentation - not to mention behavioral changes - the likes of which the engineering community and human ingenuity have never seen.

How is it going to get done? What will be the financial structures and technology partnerships that get us there? In this podcast series, we plan to explore these questions and more.

We would also like to hear your thoughts and suggestions on the subject for future episodes in the coming months. Please take a moment to submit your suggestions via this survey.

In the first episode of this series, SSPI Director of Development and Innovation Lou Zacharilla speaks with Brittany Zimmerman, CEO and Chief of Innovation at Yummet. Brittany helps us start figuring out what the economics of creating some space for space looks like.

Brittany Zimmerman is the CEO and Chief of Innovation at Yummet. Before Yummet, she served as Principal Investigator and Aerospace Engineer at Paragon Space Development. Brittany has spent 30 years working on expanding her breadth of skills to build a synergy of competencies to achieve her lifetime goal: organizational success through bettering the conditions of humanity.  She takes the old philosophy of leaving the world a better place than you found it to the next level. In her most recent of many ventures, Brittany is implementing her multidisciplinary expertise of space systems to simplify complexities and make life support technologies easily accessible and affordable for terrestrial humanity. For this and other projects, she is seeking partners and investors.

To continually diversify her activities and skills, she has opened a new location to a 501(c)(3) where she acts as Board Member and Director of Operations for a nonprofit which ensures safety and education to cross-cultural youth in California and Arizona. Brittany is a member of the 20 Under 35 cohort of 2020 and received a Promise Award in that same year, signifying her place as one of 3 leaders of the 2020 cohort. Read more about Brittany.
