Space for Kentucky

First Roundtable held on Sept 17, 2022

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!

A spaceport can provide a hub for horizontal aircraft, education, manufacturing, and research. In addition, it can draw tourism opportunities as stratospheric rides become available.
