“We have crossed continents; we have crossed oceans; we have mastered the skies, now, we can cross into space,” said Chris Lewicki, President and Chief Executive Officer of Planetary Resources, Inc.
Mr Lewicki was speaking in an interview with Austmine 2017 in preparation for their upcoming conference and exhibition, due to be held in Perth on 22-24 May at the Perth Conference and Exhibition Centre.
