LA Space Salon Video: Lee Valentine on Space Settlement

February LA Space Salon

VCAPTION: Lost in space? Don’t worry, Dr. Lee Valentine has the map. A champion of commercial space exploration for over three decades and director of the Space Studies Institute, Lee has helped shape policy and programs advancing the cause of permanent manned settlement.

Lee will be speaking with us about his unique and powerful perspective, about a future in space not tethered to any planet, about drinking deeply of the sun and devouring whole asteroids. He will help us plot a course forward, onward and upward. The vision, as he puts it, is to “Mine the Sky, Defend the Earth, Settle the Universe”. And to further inspire – Lee manages to do all of this while saving lives every day as an emergency room doctor.
