The space industry is blowing wide open, and not just for billionaires. Once an arena only for NASA, Russia and the richest aerospace companies, space is our next frontier for innovation. To transform the way we all live - from car-guiding satellites to space tourism, from solving the climate crisis to internet access for all. And much more than we can presently imagine. Canada — the third nation to go to space — can take centre stage once again. Our tech, academic, engineering, and public sectors, if they work together, have the potential to not only fight climate change. They can also propel us towards huge economic and social advances, including building life-supporting infrastructure on other planets. We led the satellite revolution, are a leader in sensor technologies and created the Canadarm, which built the International space station and soon will be used to build the next space station near the moon. The possibilities are endless. But to reach them we need to invest in a national mission to make this new space age ours. That’s why CityAge is launching a new, multi-year program: OurSpaceAge - launching with a digital event coming soon. The countdown has begun.

SpaceAge tourism — from Tom Cruise making his next movie to multi-billion-dollar private space fleets putting tourists into orbit
Spaceports meet airports: Will hypersonic travel bring us together, transforming the airline industry after 50 years of near stasis in speed and design
Space Data: With sensors and satellites becoming ubiquitous, will we get new kinds of data? Who gets it? Who uses it? And for what?
AI in Space: Astronauts can’t do it all. It will take AI to build the lunar space station and make decisions in space, where communication delays can be deadly. MDA, Boeing, Canadarm AI future are all part of this.
