Keynote Speakers

Bob Cabana

Associate Administrator, NASA HQ

I do know that we are not going to be successful unless we work together as a team and I think we have the best partnership we've ever had between NASA, industry and our commercial partners as we set our path forward. I can't tell you how excited I am about our future. The future is now. This is it.

Bill Nelson

Administrator, NASA

At NASA we always look up, and push further out into the cosmos. But central to our mission, is protecting this planet. So last year, we announced several new earth science missions – missions off-planet, for the planet. To achieve our goals our in the cosmos, and here on the surface on the earth, we must continue to innovate. We must dream big. We must develop solutions to problems once thought unsolvable.

Janet Petro

Director, Kennedy Space Center, NASA

Kennedy is ready to meet the demands of America's future in space. 2022 is going to be a year of celebration and a time to reflect on the decades of our many contributions to science, technology and exploration. Today at Kennedy we are more committed than ever to building on the legacy of the work that has gone before in order to meet the demands of the future, both on this planet and off.
