The Future of Space with Joseph Pelton

April 4, 4:00 pm-6:00 pm

What will be the future of space exploration? Join The University of Tulsa’s College of Engineering & Computer Science for a lecture on the future of space with renowned space expert Joseph Pelton (BS ’65).

This talk will cover NASA’s new approach to space and explain the use of cooperative agreements under NASA Space Act Agreements that help private companies plan, design, and even operate private Space Stations as early as 2027. It will also cover the Artemis Moon exploration program and the international Gateway lunar space station going up with the first two modules to be launched in late 2025. NASA and aerospace innovation is entering a new era led by new space companies such as Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin, Elon Musk’s Space X, and Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic.
