Chrishma Singh-Derewa

Chrishma has been a space visionary for over 30 years. Together with his mentor Gerard O'Neil at the Princeton Advanced Institute of Physics,  Chrishma drempt of America's first settlement in outer space. Over the next two decades this vision would become reality as Chrishma worked at the Kennedy Space Center testing and launching what would finally be called the international space station. However, the tragedy of the Columbia accident proved painful and Chrishma changed course in 2004 to pursue the unmanned exploration of deep Space. Launching systems out of most of the world's launch complexs and with most of the world's spacecraft manufacturers and launch vehicles gave him a unique perspective on the industry. Now with JPL, Chrishma has worked on Mars 2020, the asteroid robotic retrieval mission, insight, MarCO (first interplanetary cubesat), Sentinel 6, SWOT, and is most excited about the Europa orbiter and lander where he serves as a lead systems engineer.   Chrishma was the CEO of Starhunter Corporation and Secondary Launch Services and has worked for Space Systems Loral MDA and Lockheed Martin.  Chrishma is passionate about finding life, establishing a solar system level infrastructure for human expansion and utilization of near earth resources.
