A native New Yorker & lifelong space advocate, Steve Wolfe will share his story from his growing up in the New York boroughs to his space advocacy efforts to his space policy work on Capitol Hill. Most importantly, Steve will share his current work as President & Co-Founder of the Beyond Earth Institute (BE), a policy think tank whose mission is to create & sustain a legal & policy framework that enables economically vibrant communities beyond Earth.
