Or services and products essentially unknown just 30 years ago. Many of those recent advances came about, believe it or not, because of the space and satellite industries. They are indispensable to daily life. Go back even further and think of the century before airplanes, cars, TV, electric lighting and many of the things from the Industrial Age that totally transformed the human economy. This is where we are NOW. But don't worry. Space-age innovators are creating a "New Space" economy right here. Dr. Joseph N. Pelton, former Dean of the International Space University, Founding President of the Society of Satellite Professionals International and Pulitzer Prize nominated author, will discuss how this new global economy will change the world and recast humans as masters of time and space. And give us things as unimaginable as an airplane trip in the year 1820! The evening will also include an opportunity to meet recipients of the first-ever Astropreneurship Awards, presented on November 1st by the New York Space Alliance and Space & Satellite Professionals International. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=335541 Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
