Theme for the evening is

NASA’s Technology Transfer Program

The NASA Technology Transfer program ensures that innovations developed for exploration and discovery are broadly available to the public, maximizing the benefit to the Nation. We will have representatives from NASA and Space Foundation to talk about what it is, how to use it and its benefits. We also have two companies that have been successful recipients of transfer technologies from space.

ActivePure used NASA tech to help fight the pandemic and provide cleaner air. Zibrio is nominated for NASA invention of the year for its fall prevention innovation.


Space For Kentucky Roundtable is an opportunity for companies and individuals to come together to bring a slice of the space economy to Kentucky. Enjoy speakers, networking, and other events.  

The space industry is exploding at an unprecedented rate. It is estimated to be close to a trillion-dollar industry by the end of the decade. As cost-for-entry continues to decline, more opportunities are opened for companies to venture beyond the atmosphere!

The Space for Kentucky Roundtable is a monthly meeting about bringing the space industry to Kentucky. It is about networking, education, and social support for those that are reaching for the stars. 

ONLINE ONLY this month on Zoom. Click HERE to go to the Eventbrite for Zoom RSVP.

There is no cost.

Joe Urso, CEO and chairman

One of the many recipients of the Transfer Technology program. ActivePure used NASA tech to help fight the pandemic.

“Advancing the fight against pathogens in the air and on surfaces since 1924. Using technology developed for use in space exploration, ActivePure has changed indoor air quality and surface standards.”


Katey Forth, CEO and Co-Founder of Zibrio

Nominated for NASA invention of the year

“ZIBRIO had its genesis in the US Space Program and uses machine learning to establish patterns of stability and instability via a one-minute standing test with eyes open. It is simple enough to be self-administered by the user, and streamlined to also fit into a doctor’s checkup visit. The scale also measures weight. The balance score is a number between 1-10. 1-3 indicate an increased risk of falling. 7 or above means good balance.”
