Hot Topics in Public Policy: The Second Space Age

  • 1717 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20006 United States (map)

Last June, the revival of the National Space Council signaled the U.S. Government’s renewed focus on space. From protecting U.S. national security assets, to paving the way for commercial space companies to return humans to the moon and beyond, policymakers are paying more attention to space today than at any time since the end of the Cold War. The politics, policies, and players defining the Second Space Age distinguish it significantly from the First Space Age. How has increased interest in space impacted U.S. Government policy and the commercial space industry? What are the major differences between the First and Second Space Ages, and how will these differences impact the future of space?

The Government Affairs Industry Network (GAIN) is pleased to invite you to our upcoming panel on the Evolution of the Second Space Age to address these questions and other topics surrounding the evolution of the Second Space Age. GAIN’s “Hot Topics in Public Policy” series focuses on issues currently — or soon-to-be — moving through the 115th Congress and the Administration. These panels bring together thought leaders in the industry to discuss the current state-of-play, providing insights and intel to help attendees stay ahead of the game in the policy discussions heating up DC.

These panels bring together thought leaders in the industry to discuss the current state-of-play, providing insights and intel to help attendees stay ahead of the game in the policy discussions heating up DC.

We have designed this event to fully comply with US Senate Rule 35.1(d)(1), US House Ethics Manual pp. 41-47, and the U.S. Executive Branch Gift Rules regarding the “widely attended event” exception to the gift rules.

US Executive Branch employees are advised to consult with their agency counsel.
