No BS: Bringing Humanities Degrees to Space

Tech and innovation companies are eager for talent without STEM degrees and backgrounds. Notably, aerospace companies want people to reimagine our conceptions of rocket scientists and astronauts. Learn what skills help enable flight or launch a satellite into orbit. Join experts from the biggest aerospace groups as they highlight the value of bringing the humanities to space and the critical role the thousands of non-engineers hold in fulfilling their missions to go higher, faster, and farther.
