A conversation on space business.

He lectures on space entrepreneurship and finance at several universities including the International Space University (ISU) and the Swiss Institute of Technology at Lausanne (EPFL), hosts the popular Space Business Podcast, and is the author of “Hoch Hinaus”, an introductory book on the space economy, currently available in German and forthcoming in English and Portuguese.

This episode will address Raphael’s introductory book on space business, “Para cima: a nova economia espacial”, which will be published in Brazil very soon. Over seventeen chapters and 190 pages, the book explains key trends and activities in space, as well as what humanity’s future in space may look like.
We will talk about The Space Business Podcast produced by him, which aims to bring space entrepreneurship and other space themes to a broad audience. Every one or two weeks, Raphael talks to a member of the space family, always in non-technical language.
