Washington, 17 September 2020. – The space exploration company Voyager Space Holdings has appointed Eric Stallmer as Executive Vice President of Government Affairs and Public Policy, the Denver-based company announced last week.

Stallmer will lead Voyager’s Washington D.C. office and be responsible for representing Voyager to key government institutions including Congress, the White House and the many relevant federal agencies, Voyager said.

Stallmer was President of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation (CSF) and served as a co-chair of the Airspace Integration Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC), which is part of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). He is member of the National Space Council’s User Advisory Group (UAG) and the FAA’s Commercial Space Transportation Advisory Committee (COMSTAC).

Voyager Space Holdings is a privately held holding company acquiring and operating companies in the space exploration industry. It describes its mission as seeking to vertically integrate space exploration businesses into a publicly traded new space company.

Washington D.C. has become a critical area of growth for many space start-ups and ventures, Voyager said. “As our organization continues its rapid growth, it’s important that we help provide leadership in the commercial sector and provide our perspective from a regulatory standpoint,” said Dylan Taylor, CEO and Chairman of Voyager.

Diversity is difficult to measure and quantify, given all the aspects and shapes it takes, yet it is easy to witness and observe the lack of it in many fields including the space sector. If the space sector and all its disciplines should be used to help improve life on earth and observe it (amongst other purposes), shouldn't it be represented by all terrestrial individuals equally? In an ideal world, yes! But history and social biases have prevented our progress towards this perfect world, and we find ourselves today with a space sector still dominated by cis white-male individuals.
