Entrepreneurs will hear from a real-life astronaut at this year’s TEDCO-organized expo.

Along with all the space mission stuff he had to take care of, Virts sent back some beguiling tweets and mystifying GoPro footage of a spacewalk. Along with his astronaut duties, Virts will talk about how NASA needs to expand its relationship with entrepreneurs. (Consider the Startup NASA initiative a step in that direction.)
Rent the Runway cofounder Jennifer Fleiss is also speaking at the Expo, which will be held at BWI Marriott in Linthicum Heights.
