Deputy Administrator Garver has long been a supporter of partnership between the governmental and commercial space sectors. Her speech at NewSpace 2012 will surely bring to light new aspects of partnering with NASA and the future of the space industry.

“I think you know that the whole basis and underpinning for what we are trying to do in this administration is to return NASA to that more traditional role of our 1958 Space Act of investing in technologies that will then help create the new markets so that the private sector can come in, benefit from this technology investment, scientific understandings, and then we move on to do the next hard thing,” said Garver at NewSpace 2011. “It is what we should be doing in the government, to open new markets, and this is a role we take very seriously.”
