SINC 2023 – Day 2 – Review with Alexandra Sokolowski

Good evening from the end of day two of the Space for Island Nations Conference 2023! Today we heard about the opportunities of space from two ministers, both emphasising the untapped chances that space offers for defence and tourism in the Maldives.

We listened to two expert panels about capacity building in emerging space nations, as well as special opportunities in equatorial countries, like Maldives.

After the break, we went deeper into space, with Dr. Pete Worden of the @Breakthrough Initiatives and the equally inspiring Dr. Harold White of the @Limitless Space Institute under the applicable theme ‘from Sand to Stars’.

Special thanks to my co-host @Alexandra Sokolowski of the event organising committee for sharing our views on the day from this amazing location!
