Humanity is heading back to the moon, this time not just for the pursuit of scientific knowledge, but also to exploit the commercial possibilities.

This week we have another special recording from the recent Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute ASTRO 2019 conference in Laval, Quebec.

In this weeks SpaceQ podcast, the topic is Commercial Lunar Exploration. The panel was divided into two sections, presentations by each panelist followed by a moderated question and answer session. We will post the video of the presentations when it’s available, but the focus for this podcast is the excellent Q&A discussion.

The panel was moderated by Jan Clarence Dee a Space a Consultant at Euroconsult. The panelists were Erick Dupuis, Director, Space Exploration Development, Canadian Space Agency; Michele Faragali, CTO, Mission Control Space Services; and John Walker, VP Lunar Surface Operations, ispace Inc.

Note that subsequent to this talk, and later in the conference, Erick Dupuis announced that the Treasury Board of Canada had approved the requested $150 million over five years for the Canadian Lunar Exploration Accelerator Program.
