Former Astronaut Ron Garan: Space Program Builds A Foundation Of Collaboration
Retired NASA astronaut and author Ron Garan told HuffPost Live that countries working together globally on space exploration could end up collaborating more on other, more complicated challenges.
“If we can find things that we agree on, like space exploration, and work on those things… that builds a foundation to then build things that we don’t agree on,” Garan said Friday at Davos.
Garan said there are millions of organizations on earth working on improving things globally but there’s often no collaboration, leading to a less effective effort.
“There’s a couple of things that we get from the space program, and one of them is this example of collaboration,” Garan said.
