YP: The Crossroads between Two Exploration Programs: How Space Exploration Missions and Aerospace intersect Oil and Gas

  ABSTRACT of Presentation

Curiosity, innovation and a drive to optimize has powered and revolutionized the oil and gas industry since the first oil well in 1859. The comparatively more nascent space industry is driven by similar principles of unending curiosity, overcoming challenges and pushing beyond what is considered possible.  Whether it is drilling in HPHT environments or overcoming the physiological challenges of microgravity in a 6-month long spaceflight to mars, the technologies and people powering these two industries are remarkably similar.

The purpose of this talk is to discuss the similarities between these two seemingly disparate industries and how your skills in oil and gas could be possibly used to make the human mission to mars a reality.
