SSI Space Manufacturing 14: Jeff Greason

XCOR CEO Jeff Greason

Jeff Greason – XCOR

— space is an endeavor and enterprise I have believed in for as long as I remember
— now finds himself in the space business– believed in the early space shuttle projections — flying every week
— no point in going any place just to go…need something to do with it…
— if you are going to explore and you have no idea about what to do with what you find…
— People aren’t as into space because there was no ultimate point to exploration…
— we don’t seem to be proud of what we’ve done, almost cowering from the technology that we can wield.
— we sit on the shore of an ocean that has vast resources of materials, energy and space
— the moon is not sterile and dry…it will support a great culture and be the transportation hub of the Solar System
–  Our work is a result of the work that Gerard K. O’Neill did….looked at colonies that would be sustainable, profitable, self-sustaining
