If Taiwan Goes, Does Commercial Space Go With It?
May 18 UTC-5
The bombs falling in Ukraine have raised major geopolitical issues in Asia. One in particular will seriously impact the future of the commercial space industry. Taiwan’s significance to the world’s supply chain, high-value technology base, microprocessors and the civil life and laws upon which democracy depends are not always considered when we casually ask, “If Taiwan Goes, What Else Goes With It?” Could the industry be a casualty of a Chinese invasion? In this important discussion of the Roundtable, our guests will discuss what is REALLY at stake.
Moderated by SSPI’s Lou Zacharilla and NY Space Alliance Founder Joseph Fargnoli, with special reports by SpaceNews reporters Jason Rainbow and Debra Werner, our guests include: Dr. Ting-Jung (TJ) Liang, Principal Engineer, Long Range Communications Technology, Industrial Technology Research Institute, Taiwan; N. Darius Sankey, PhD., Managing Director, Innovation Acceleration Capital; Dr. Robert Spaulding, Co-CEO, Q-Networks, author, STEALTH WAR: HOW CHINA TOOK OVER WHILE AMERICA’S ELITE SLEPT (Portfolio; 2019); and Thomas Yen, CEO & Co-Founder, Tensor Tech.
