2nd: Tinashe Jambo “ABCD electricity uses solar irradiance data to estimate new PV installations and assess the efficiency of an existing PV installation . ABCD Electricity wants to enable customers to easily understand their existing or planned solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, in the areas where they live and work. We use solar irradiance data to estimate the electricity production capabilities of new PV installations, and to assess the efficiency of existing PV installations. Our use of local information, satellite data, and analysis techniques, give our customers a unique and clear insight into the potential of their solar PV system. This is why we call our service the ABC and D of electricity.” 

3rd: Mori Ono “Expanding beyond astronaut ice cream and offering more foods similar to those eaten by astronauts in terms of preparation. This would be marketed towards children with the purpose of increasing awareness and interest in space exploration through packaging that includes interesting facts and photos related to space.”
