Mr. Faranetta helped forge early joint US/Russian commercial space efforts while serving as International Liaison to the Space Studies Institute (SSI) in Princeton, NJ. Following his work at SSI, Mr. Faranetta founded and co-managed the Americas office of Rocket Space Corporation Energia (RSC Energia) to support the development of new US/Russian space ventures.

While working for RSC Energia, Russia's prime contractor for manned spacecraft technology, Mr. Faranetta gained valuable exposure to flight operations during the Shuttle/Mir program. Following his position with RSC Energia, Mr. Faranetta worked with emerging companies to formulate and identify new markets for advanced manned space technologies. His love for the development of orbital and sub-orbital private space exploration drew him to Space Adventures, Ltd. where he now serves as vice president for the company's orbital program.
