On Friday, Chad Hasty talked with author Scott Jucha about the 1st annual SpaceCom event in Houston.

SpaceCom is a three-day event engineered to fuel business innovation across the aerospace, medical, energy, transportation, maritime, communications and advanced manufacturing industries. ScaceCom is designed to bring innovators from both the government and the private sector together, for the advancement of the space industry on a global scale.

During the interview Jucha said,

I think it's going to be a huge economic engine. It's got to be started. So that means capital in, in the beginning, but it's going to be a huge economic globally, and I would hope that the U.S. is a primary leader in it.

More information about SpaceCom is available on it's website.
