Keynote Speaker

Michael Trela, Head of Satellite Engineering,
Google + Skybox Imaging

Often engineers working in the space industry look at the 1950s and 60s as the pinnacle of space exploration whether it is Yuri Gagarin’s first orbit around the Earth to Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon. However, if we look at the incredible set of accomplishments and investments in space activity over the last 10 years, one can clearly see we have entered a new Golden Era of spaceflight. The future of space exploration is not only bright but is much more sustainable than it has been in the past.

Bio for Michael Trela.

Skybox Imaging is a Google subsidiary providing commercial high-resolution Earth observation satellite imagery, high-definition video and analytics services.
