Talks were followed by three panels of lightning talks dedicated to Harvard and MIT's exciting new space curriculum and space student groups, as well as a panel on career paths in the private space sector. Each panelist had 180 seconds to convey the core of their role, followed by a 10-minute Q&A panel. An hour meet-and-greet followed, allowing the public and speakers to interact and celebrate Harvard’s first Space Night.
