Jeremy Hansen: Wow, humanity going back to the moon. I’m so humbled to be a part of this. But what does it really mean to me? For me it is very clearly about opportunity.

We’ve seen time and time again throughout history, where visionary leadership to take big risks has brought unimaginable rewards back to humanity, and that’s exactly what these Artemis missions are about to me.

I believe that it will create opportunities that we haven’t even imagined yet, and we’ve already imagined some incredible ones.

Evolving our space robotics to a third generation to be able to tackle the challenges of deep space, or leveraging the challenges we face on the earth with respect to remote healthcare and food security in isolated parts of northern Canada.

Leveraging those challenges, but leveraging also the expertise here on the planet and then taking those solutions with our international partners into deep space.

Amazing opportunities ahead for Canada and all of humanity.
