Today’s SpaceQ podcast is a space industry power panel discussion from the recent Canadian Global Affairs Institute Ready for Launch, Preparing Canada for a Future in Space conference held in Ottawa.

Officially the panel was called the Canadian Space Industry Leaders, but I’m calling it the Power Panel, as it featured David O’Connor of Magellan Aerospace, Mike Greenley of MDA, Marina Mississian of Honeywell and Dan Goldberg of Telesat. Indeed, a power panel representative of Canada’s largest space companies.

Moderated by Charity Weeden, the panelists discussed the current state of the Canadian Space Program, what they think should be included in the next Space Strategy, and what they think of governments support. Magellan’s David O’Connor went as far as saying “our government has failed the country with the way its handled the space program.”
