Maneuvering Towards Better In-space Propulsion — What goes up must come down, but we can delay that second part a bit with better propulsion on our satellites and spacecraft. Accion Systems, Phase Four and Morpheus Space are pushing the boundaries of in-space propulsion. Join the leaders of these companies as they discuss the challenges and opportunities in changing how in-space assets move about.

Space Tourism Takes Off — Blue Origin’s 2021 included its first trips to space for paying passengers, including company founder Jeff Bezos and TV starship captain William Shatner. Ariane Cornell, the company’s director of Astronaut and Orbital Sales will tell us what it’s like to retail those rides.

The Full-service Space Company — Rocket Lab’s 2021 saw it enter the public markets, announce brand new spacecraft, acquire companies and more. We’ll talk to Peter Beck about what the one-time dedicated launch company is turning into through all this growth and change.

Taking Earth Observation to Enterprise Scale — We’re not short of eyes in the sky, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to collect and use the data that Earth observation networks create. Find out how mapping veteran Esri and startups SkyWatch and Wyvern are building out data infrastructure that makes orbital imagery accessible and profitable.

Time-shifting bonus: No need to worry about schedule conflicts. Your pass includes access to video-on-demand once the conference ends — it’s part of your free, one-month subscription to TechCrunch+. Go back and catch anything you missed.

TC Sessions: Space 2021 takes flight on December 14-15. You’ll pay more at the virtual door, so take advantage of the late-registration price. Buy your pass before December 13 at 11:59 pm (PT).
