Peter Diamandis – along with the likes of Elon Musk, Richard Branson, Dennis Tito, and Jeff Bezos – is one of a handful of entrepreneurs who can rightfully claim to have jump-started the young but growing private space exploration industry.
The co-founder of the X Prize Foundation, Zero-Gravity Corporation, Space Adventures, Planetary Resources, and the International Space University, Diamandis is a tireless advocate for investment in cutting-edge technology and space education.
