Together, we can go further.
NASA iTech searches for and identifies advancements in technologies, NOT already funded by NASA, that are solving problems on Earth and have the potential to address existing challenges to enable NASA missions.
"Although public space agencies like NASA and major aerospace companies worldwide continue to be the driving forces behind humanity’s journey to Mars, an increasing number of startups…are jumping in to provide critical supporting technologies.
When we do finally put a person on Mars, don’t be surprised if many of the machines and devices that make it possible are stamped with company names and logos you’ve never heard of. Just as it takes hundreds of companies of all sizes to create and maintain our physical infrastructure here on Earth, so too will it take many ideas and many voices to build infrastructure on Mars that supports exploration and, ultimately, habitation."
