Description

Welcome to the new space economy... Space is open for business!
The dawn of a new space race led by private sector entrepreneurs is upon us thanks to the USA Space Act 2015 and technology advances like SpaceX rockets, which have greatly reduced the cost of space flight. For the first time in history, the advances in both technical and legal infrastructure have opened up exciting opportunities that are already driving the commercial exploration of deep space commodities, Space tourism with Virgin Galactic, and the serious planning for the colonisation of our Moon and Mars.
Tom James, a leading commodity and energy market practitioner and author, has brought together top professionals in academia, astropolitics, space engineering, and space law to explore the exciting opportunities and challenges businesses face in the new off-planet economy.
With quadrillions of dollars of mineral wealth and frozen water within our reach, the stakes may be high, but so are the rewards.
So pack your bags, fasten your oxygen mask and let's get ready to boldly take business where business has not gone before...


Features guidance on commercial strategies for off planet natural resource developments
Includes contributions from leading scientists and space law developers
Explores the regulatory framework as well as technology developments
Will appeal to people with both a general interest in the topic and also business executives starting to think about their own corporate space strategy


Auteur

Professor Tom James is a leading expert and published author in the Energy and Commodity sector with over 28 years of global commercial experience. He is regularly called upon by governments and corporations for advice and insight on market developments, and has served as a Senior Energy Advisor to the United States Department of Defense in its Task Force for Business and Stability Operations (TFBSO).
For several years now Tom has employed data from space-based satellites to support his work in the trading, tracking, and monitoring of energy and natural resource supply and consumption across planet Earth. This has allowed him to keep close to the technical and commercial developments in the space sector.
In 2009 Professor James founded the international commodity and energy consulting group, Navitas Resources. In 2016 he co-founded NR Capital, an alternative commodity trade finance platform, and in 2018 he co-founded Deep Space Technologies, a firm focused on the development of a Space Economy Ecosystem.
Alongside his commercial career, Professor James has held a variety of academic positions, including the Petronet LNG Chair Professor at UPES in Asia; Executive Tutor for the MBA Oil and Gas programme at Middlesex University, UK; visiting executive faculty at the Singapore Management University (SMU); and Adjunct Professor at UNIST, South Korea.
He lives and works in Singapore and is a professional member of the Singapore Space and Technology Association (SSTA).
