I would like to extend my thanks to Cheryl Nickerson, Michael Lopez-Alegria, Tom Jones, and Will Pomerantz for being on our panel; to SpaceTech Expo 2014 for hosting our event; and to Arizona State University and the ASU/NewSpace Initiative office for sponsoring our panel. Our hour-long conversation revealed interesting and diverse ideas and perspectives on the potential of the academic- commercial relationship in the future of space science, engineering, and exploration. It's an exciting and evolving conversation that is only just beginning within many sectors of the NewSpace industry. I welcome comments and feedback from others out there who are also exploring and innovating within this realm. The full video from our panel discussion by expert scientists, astronauts, and space business leaders can be found on the ASU/NewSpace website.
