Space Symposium

In Oklahoma you’ll find an impressive list of astronauts, companies that are supplying critical components for space flight, as well as infrastructure and sites suited to support companies with space and aerospace operations. When you add in the Oklahoma Air & Space Port (approved for both horizontal and vertical launches into space and the only FAA-approved space flight corridor not in restricted or military airspace); it’s clear the state is a premier location for space operations, research and development.
