SpaceX Founder and Chief Engineer Elon Musk will appear as a keynote speaker at the SATELLITE 2020 Conference and Exhibition on Monday, March 9 at 4:00 p.m. EST at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington D.C.

In addition to SpaceX, Musk also leads electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla as its CEO and product architect. He has also founded or co-founded SolarCity, OpenAI, Neuralink, and The Boring Company, which is constructing mass transit tunnels in California.

He last appeared at SATELLITE in 2009, just after SpaceX was awarded the multibillion-dollar NASA Commercial Resupply Services program contract to send supplies to the International Space Station (ISS) on its Dragon capsule. SpaceX has set industry records with its Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy rockets, and unveiled a massive new rocket called Starship, a large, long-duration spacecraft capable of carrying passengers or cargo to Earth orbit, planetary destinations, and between destinations on Earth.

More details pertaining to the keynote will be revealed soon. SATELLITE 2020 registration is open and the event’s early bird pricing deadline is Thursday, Dec. 12 at midnight. Visit the SATELLITE 2020 registration to attend this year’s event.
