Dylan Taylor Looks to Democratize the Future of Space Exploration

While many of us look on in amazement at the innovations coming out of the NewSpace sector, space industry pioneer Dylan Taylor is determined to one day make these advancements, and ultimately space exploration, more accessible to people all over the world. 

As the sector’s innovations evolve, major space companies like Virgin Galactic sell tickets for zero gravity space flights and prepare to make space tourism a reality for uber-wealthy clients. The potential for everyday citizens to one day experience outer space continues to become increasingly possible.

As the world’s most active private space investor with over 50 companies, Taylor remains an advocate for technologies that will advance space exploration and help everyday citizens experience our galaxy. His dedication is heavily evidenced by his role as Chairman and CEO of Voyager Space Holdings, a multi-national space holding firm. Since its founding in 2019, the company has acquired firms like The Launch Company, which develops standardized hardware and supports launches through automation, and Nanoracks, the first company in the world to have its own commercial airlock in space. 

Along with his company’s mission, Taylor is particularly interested in space manufacturing and the utilization of in-space resources, fostering the potential of deep space settlement that humans will one day be a part of in their quest to return to the Moon and reach Mars. 

Taylor’s quest to make space exploration accessible extends far beyond his business ventures. He also holds a philanthropic presence within the space industry, promoting this vision. As the founder of the nonprofit and social movement, Space for Humanity, he both seeks to provide solutions that democratize space exploration and develop solutions to global issues through the lens of human awareness, helping to solve the world’s most intractable problems.

He has long been a leading advocate for how society can leverage these technologies, citing how innovations like X-rays and broadband were made possible by space technologies.

“We’ve already seen innovations that were originally invented for space research and used to radically improve life here on Earth. But now the possibility of ordinary citizens using these technologies in space could have the potential to change how we learn about and interact with our final frontier.”

Indeed, today’s emerging innovations in the fields of biotech and engineering are shaping the vision of how space exploration has the potential to find its way into mainstream applications with the promise of a better tomorrow. He’s also keenly aware of how the wealth gap could impact and delay the sector’s progress.

“Space exploration shouldn’t just be limited to those with the financial means. In the future, my hope is everyone will be able to make the journey,” says Taylor.

His approach differs from that of other industry titans like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos in that his activity in commercial investments also intersects with a full-rounded humanistic approach. Taylor’s commitment to humanitarian ideals will only further advance the burgeoning NewSpace sector. His investments will ultimately enable the industry to build and maintain a sustainable society in space, while also improving life on Earth through the vast amount of tech research and development.

“As the private space sector evolves, it will become more ingrained with Earth’s citizens. These companies will have to expand to provide accessibility to everyone, while also commanding a democratic mindset so they can cater to consumers and maintain a model that helps NewSpace development, tourism and settlement thrive.”
