Innovation Talk by Adriana Marais

When asked why she wants to go to Mars, Adriana answers that the allure of the unknown is far more powerful than the comfort of the known. According to Dr Adriana Marais, Director at the Foundation for Space Development, we are at a turning point in history, with humanity ready to go extra-terrestrial. "After all, the Chinese made cotton plants grow on the dark side of the moon and every month, spaceships are launched to explore space. As humans and entrepreneurs, we need to fully realize that we are entering a new era." In her keynote speech, Adriana will give her view on why space changes everything for us here on earth.
