Voyage Chicago recently interviewed NewSpace Chicago founder and CEO of Orbital Transports, David Hurst. From the article:
Today we’d like to introduce you to David Hurst.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’ve dreamt of going to space since I was a boy. Watching the Apollo astronauts land on the Moon in 1969 captivated my imagination. I grew up on predictions of Moon bases, space colonies orbiting the Earth, and giant solar power satellites beaming power down to the ground and ending our dependence on oil. I knew that our destiny lay in the stars and that Space is our future.
