Welcome to Hub Culture's first listing of 100 people leading the space conversation across science, business, government and academia.

These individuals from around the world are at the forefront of global private space initiatives and hold a bedrock of knowledge relative to humanity's efforts to expand activity off planet Earth.

Many of the people in this conversation can be reached via their Twitter handle, included here for an easy follow, and handy for those planning events related to space solutions.
