Elements of a shared space movement | Luisa Buinhas | TEDxUniBw


We tend to think of space as a means to an end, as a resource that allows us to improve life and knowledge here on Earth. But what if instead of asking ‘what can satellites do for us here on Earth?’, we ask ‘what can satellite do for other satellites?’. With this new mindset, collaboration between satellites in orbit will enable simply co-working in space. Luisa is a Space Systems Engineer and co-founder of Vyoma, a NewSpace company based in Munich and Darmstadt. Having completed her PhD in the field of formation flying and maneuver optimization, she has spent the last years involved in DLR-led mission studies for satellite constellations both for deep-space and planetary applications. Luisa completed her Master’s degree at TU Delft, in the Netherlands in 2012, and spent six months at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a research intern. She holds an Amelia Earhart Fellowship from 2016 and is an active member of the International Astronautical Federation and Space Generation Advisory Council. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
