LA Space Salon presents: Dr. Lee Valentine
Lost in space? Don't worry, Dr. Lee Valentine has the map. A champion of commercial space exploration for over three decades and director of the Space Studies Institute, Lee has helped shape policy and programs advancing the cause of permanent manned settlement, [SpaceVidCast].
Lee will be speaking with us about his unique and powerful perspective, about a future in space not tethered to any planet, about drinking deeply of the sun and devouring whole asteroids. He will help us plot a course forward, onward and upward. The vision, as he puts it, is to "Mine the Sky, Defend the Earth, Settle the Universe". And to further inspire - Lee manages to do all of this while saving lives every day as an emergency room doctor.
