Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Anderson:

“The major technological changes are not only happening on earth; the transformation is extending into space as well.  With a record $15B in private investment in space last year, there are new satellite constellations and technologies that can further empower the federal government.

Microsoft recognized this strategic shift and made a significant investment in establishing Azure Space to bring cloud computing and space technologies together with a partner ecosystem to better serve Federal customers. Our approach enables ubiquitous and resilient connectivity tied to compute and analytics that facilitate new insights and rapid decision-making.”
