Hosting IAC2015, where over 2000 space stakeholders from 58 countries gather to celebrate: Space – The Gateway to Mankind’s Future

For a few moments on Monday morning, in Jerusalem, before all hell broke loose, over 2000 global leaders from 58 countries got together at the opening ceremony of IAC2015, to celebrate space — the gateway to mankind’s future.

I had the honor of hosting the gathering, to meet the president of the International Astronautical Federation – the very charming Kiyoshi Higuchi, moon walkers like Buzz Aldrin, leaders at Lockheed Martin and so many young space enthusiasts from all over the world.
