(April 30, 2020 – New York City) – Space & Satellite Professionals International (SSPI) today released Mission to the Future, its newest Better Satellite World video. It describes how the space and satellite industry of today is laying the foundations for the space economy of the future and beginning to extend the vast value that its technologies bring to Earth far beyond its air and warmth.

“Most Better Satellite World videos tell the story of space and satellite technology benefiting our lives on Earth today,” said executive director Robert Bell. “Mission to the Future puts that story into a larger context: how we will preserve and extend human life beyond this fragile planet and tap opportunities for growth we are just beginning to imagine.”

Space and satellite companies are working every day to find cheaper and more reliable ways to go to space and return, to deliver valuable services to Earth, and to explore for resources beyond our atmosphere. Today, someone starting a career can help make that happen, and someone starting school tomorrow could wind up working in a new space economy.

You can watch Mission to the Future on SSPI’s website and on Youtube.
