Space Infrastructure 太空的基礎建設

By all projections, the Space economy will reach between 1.5 and 2 trillion US dollars by 2040.  Space is no longer a novel industry and government-driven mission.  Nowadays, the private sector plays a critical role and has continued to change the industrial landscape.  Small nations can have their mini space programs sending tiny satellites to space.

This talk looks at the current development in Space from the perspective of Infrastructure.  Per World Bank, “infrastructure affects growth through several supply and demand-side channels. Investments in energy, telecommunications, and transport networks directly impact growth, as all types of infrastructure represent an essential input in any production of goods and services.  In addition, infrastructure can also reduce the cost of delivered goods, facilitate the physical mobility of people and products, remove productivity constraints, and increase competitiveness.”  So what does space infrastructure entail?

We examine the infrastructure being constructed for Space to be an integral part of the 21st century.


Background of Dr. Stephen W. Cheung

Stephen is currently adjunct professor of physics at the University of Hong Kong where he teaches a course in the MSc program in Space Science.  He began his career as a research scientist at a NASA funded satellite program at Stanford University. He later joined Varian Medical Systems, a major supplier of radiation therapy systems—use of X-rays to treat cancers.  He was head of microwave systems at Accuray Inc., a Silicon Valley company using robots to deliver precision radiation therapy. He was principal investigator of special projects funded by the government that earned Accuray a national award in 2013. He holds several US patents related to X-rays and is author of two books on microwave technology.

Dr. Cheung worked in Hong Kong for 10 years. He was general manager of the Electronics Division at the Hong Kong Productivity Council and later Exec VP of a consumer electronics company.
