Peter Platzer is a high-energy physicist, and co-founder and CEO of NanoSatisfi, a crowdfunded space exploration and education company. NanoSatisfi democratizes access to space exploration, images and data, making them accessible to everyday people. Peter passionately believes in the power of inspiring, hands-on education, especially in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). NanoSatisfi’s first satellites, ArduSat-1 and -X, will launch this summer and provide hundreds of students with real access to a satellite to program, control, and use for their educational purposes. Together with many other important STEM initiatives across the country, Peter believes that the key to continued economic growth is innovation, driven by a young generation educated in the crucial fields of STEM, and inspired to move our country and the world forward.
