We are proud to announce the winners in the Future-scaping Our Skies Challenge on behalf of NASA’s Convergent Aeronautics Solutions. With the thoughtful insights generated by this crowdsourced think tank effort, NASA might better anticipate the many forces of change that will shape our society and aviation in the 20-30 years.
The Future-Scaping Our Skies Challenge explored the ways that societal, technological, environmental, economic, regulatory, and political changes over the next 30 years could impact aviation.
We’ll sit down with the NASA Convergent Aeronautics Solutions Project team on August 5th at 10:00 am ET for a webinar to meet the winners and hear about their visions for the future of aviation… please join us!
