In this episode we talk about MIT's Lunar Knowledge Graph called Lunar Open Architecture and MIT’s intriguing research on a crowd-sourced, sharing-economy-like, tokenized satellite constellation. A sat-constellation-as-public-utility.

The MIT’s Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative has the goal “to invent, create, and deploy ideas that seem exotic and impossible today, but could be commonplace in ten years.”

Our guest today is the research lead of MIT’s Lunar Open Architecture project, Mehak Sarang. Mehak is a trained physicist and a Research Associate both at Harvard Business School and MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative, and an active member of the Open Lunar Foundation, Moon Dialogs, and the SGAC EAGLE Team.
