This Space Café Israel will feature Alice Miller – VP Space in Helios – in conversation with Meidad Pariente, correspondent of SpaceWatch.Global for Israel.
From Earth to the Moon and back: spin-ups and spin-downs of beyond earth habitat
Alice, like many, wanted to become an astronaut. Becoming a pilot was the first step. Once she realized women could not become pilots in the Israeli Air Force, she petitioned the high court and won the case (1995). She did not become a pilot but opened the doors for hundreds and thousands of women.
After spending a decade as an Aerospace Engineer in the Israeli Air Force, Alice turned to the private sector in various areas. She founded a natural swim pond company, she founded a reusable energy startup, she constructed a resort in the Indian Himalayas, she initiated an Israeli – Palestinian municipal waste project, and she even founded a company taking people star gazing…
And now, Alice is VP Space in Helios, an Israeli startup, turning lab scale technology into full blown lunar industry.
