There are a few topics set to be discussed at the forum including public-private partnerships to increase access to space and cross-cultural initiatives to develop enabling technologies that can lead to the creation of a truly international space agency.

The Impact of Blockchain Technology on Future Space Missions’ is expected to bring a substantial interest among space industry leaders, as the applications and need for blockchain technology is becoming realized. This is already the case for NASA, who are developing blockchain applications for space.
