Co-founder of Relativity Space company, Jordan Noone, will visit Morocco to share his expertise on innovation, and technological advances in the aerospace industry.
Rabat – Chief technology officer of Relativity Space company, Jordan Noone, will pay Morocco a six-day visit on the occasion of the series of events called “Moonshot Morocco:#7ta_7aja_Mab3ida (Nothing is out of reach!).”
Ranked among the “Forbes 30 Under 30” list of most promising young entrepreneurs, 26-year-old Noone is the co-founder of the Relativity Space company, a California-based start-up. Relativity Space is the only company specializing in manufacturing cost-effective 3D-printed rockets.
Launched by the US Mission in Morocco, Moonshot Morocco is a year-round event in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong setting foot on the moon, the first man to ever do so.
The US embassy wrote that the event will commemorate the “spirit of risk-taking, innovation, and achieving the seemingly impossible.”
During his visit, which will run from June 12-16 at Technopark Auditorium in Tangier and Dar America in Casablanca, Noone will meet with students to exchange expertise in business start-ups, innovation, and technological advances in the aerospace industry.
Noone’s discussion will particularly revolve around 3D printing industry, such as the future of manufacturing and how 3D printing will shape the industry. He will also give broader advice on how to achieve one’s goal.
The Moonshot annual campaign started in mid-February 2019, and has already organized a series of events, drawing over 300 Moroccan youth.
On February 18-21, retired American astronaut Daniel Tani, who flew to space for 153 days on two missions and performed two spacewalks, honored the event with a presentation and talks, followed by an interview with Moroccan Science-oriented YouTuber Najib Mokhtari.
