The future of space navigation
Lots of kids look to the stars and think to themselves that someday they’d like to be among them. When asked about their dream career, many enthusiastically offer up, “I want to be an astronaut.” But few actually pursue this path and even less get close to achieving it.
Then for those that nearly reach that goal as adults but don’t end up as astronauts, it’s more rare for those few to take that passion and find another way to channel it toward working in the space industry. At five years old, Luca Rossettini began pursuing his passion and he’s never stopped.
Today, he is CEO and Founder of D-Orbit, and his company provides space logistics and orbital transportation. On this episode of Future of Tech, Luca shares how his childhood passion has led to his current career and offers encouragement to the next generation. He discusses why the conditions are right for a rapid increase in the amount of space satellites, and he reveals that the future involves building logistical infrastructure in space.
