April 10, 2017
Janie M. Gonzalez, Webhead CEO’s takeaway’s from my trip to Colorado Springs to attend the 33rd Space Technology Symposium:
- Commercial Space Travel Race Begins: SpaceX’s Falcon 9 Rocket – The first privately-owned space vessel to help a craft (the Dragon) rendezvous with the International Space Station, this product of Elon Musk’s entrepreneurial dreams has stepped into the place that NASA’s Space Shuttles.
- Robots in Space: NASA, along with General Motors, has begun building dexterous, humanoid robots called Robonauts. The current phase of the Robonaut allows the robot to be attached to a rover, and comes complete with “space legs”.
- Augmented/Virtual Reality to Visit Space: You can train to be an astronaut or visit in space using augmented/virtual reality technology. NASA has an open-source library of 3D models and plans to use. Rewind, a creative agency and digital production studio based in London uses virtual reality and the creative production for unforgettable experiences like the latest project for the release of Rupert Sanders’ ‘Ghost in the Shell’.
- Machine Learning (Artificial Intelligence): The race into an artificial intelligence powered by the Internet, and the huge increase in the amount of digital information being generated, stored, and made available for analysis.
- Met Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO and enjoyed his presentation about the Golden age for tech and space tourism.
