We Made Aliens… in Space? (ft. Mark Kugel, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of yuri)

Our hosts Sven & Daniel discuss rising technologies, economic opportunities and social dreams centered around the topics of Innovation & NewSpace with executives, founders and other exciting people from the startup & NewSpace ecosystem.

The podcast’s purpose is to build awareness for this revolutionary era and, from Berlin, Germany, promote Europe’s potential in participating in this next big step.


In this episode, Mark Kugel, Co-founder and Co-CEO of microgravity research company Yuri (yes, it’s as fascinating as it sounds), explains how his startup enables researchers to conduct experiments in low gravity – while in orbit around the Earth – and why this has such special benefits. Yuri enables research but also wants to conduct it itself – perhaps even growing organs in space unaffected by the constraints of gravity on Earth. 

You’ll also hear about the challenges Yuri faced, why small companies hold the power to disrupt the market, and what’s in store for the future of space innovation.
