Aerus LLC, the Healthy Home leader providing cutting-edge technologies to create the healthiest homes around the world, proudly sent CEO Joe Urso and President Kevin Hickey to represent the company, highlight its award-winning ActivePure Technology and host several events at the 34th Space Symposium, held April 16 – 19, 2018 at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Thousands of space professionals and space leaders from more than 40 countries participated as speakers, panelists, attendees and exhibitors in the largest Space Symposium to date. Vice President Mike Pence was a keynote speaker in a special presentation preceding the Symposium’s opening ceremony and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross was also a featured speaker this year.
In 2017, Aerus saw its proprietary ActivePure Technology inducted into the Space Technology Hall of Fame, a Space Foundation program aiming to increase public awareness of the benefits of space exploration and encouraging further innovation of NASA-adapted technologies. Aerus joined a select group of fewer than 80 other innovative companies around the globe who have been honored by the Space Foundation for successfully transforming technology originally developed for space exploration into products that help improve the quality of life here on Earth.
This year, Urso and Hickey hosted several senior NASA executives at the Space Technology Hall of Fame Dinner and at a luncheon event. In addition, Urso and Hickey had their photos taken and attached to a payload that will be delivered to the International Space Station, where the photos will permanently reside.
“We were honored to attend and host the Space Technology Hall of Fame Dinner this year and join friends, colleagues, aerospace, military and government leaders, industry entrepreneurs, like SpaceX and others to discuss the future of space and technology,” said Aerus CEO Joe Urso, “we are very proud of our ActivePure Technology and we see every day the positive impact space technology has on people’s health and lives.”
