On Tuesday, July 23, we were joined the Space Management and Business (MGB) and Space Policy, Economics, and Law (PEL) Departments for a professional visit to SES Luxembourg.
We were honoured to be joined by Dr Joe Pelton, Emeritus Director of the Space and Advanced Communications Research Institute (SACRI) at George Washington University and author of several publications and editor of this year’s textbook, The Farthest Shore.
We were given an introduction and background to the company, a tour of its facilities, as well as an opportunity to meet with several ISU Alumni at SES. The company is a global player in satellite communications and is constantly expanding his markets. It is attracting a number of space professionals such as those from ISU.
