Save the Date: NewSpace 2010 Conference

by Space Frontier Foundation on February 3, 2010

The NewSpace 2010 Conference is set for July 23-25 at the Domain Hotel in Silicon Valley, California. The Space Frontier Foundation’s annual conference is an opportunity for NewSpace industry leaders to celebrate the rapid progress made in this field, while exchanging knowledge and preparing for the obstacles ahead.

“For twenty-one years, the Space Frontier Foundation has been the vanguard of the NewSpace movement, working to change the economics of space,” says Foundation Director Berin Szoka. “Our annual NewSpace conference will once again bring together a unique mix of revolutionary space entrepreneurs, investors, scientists, engineers, and space policy leaders to explore the opportunities and challenges of opening the space frontier to human settlement.”

Coverage and interest in the entrepreneurial space industry has skyrocketed recently and, as a nod to this momentum, the auspicious theme of this year’s conference is ‘Ready for Take-Off.’ The event will highlight the emergence of a variety of NewSpace markets as companies shift from theoretical concepts to functional realities. Programming and networking receptions will cover pressing topics, including the utilization of suborbital vehicles, development of fuel depots, optimization of space prizes, technology pathways to profitable space solar power, and the financial benefits of a thriving presence in space.

Friday’s panels will expound upon ‘The Thrill of Victory and the Agony of Defeat: The Business of NewSpace,’ while Saturday’s discussion will be about ‘Pushing the Limit: The Challenges Facing NewSpace Today.’ Sunday will close the conference with a look ‘Beyond the Horizon: NewSpace and New Worlds of Tomorrow.’ All panels will be lead by pioneers in the space industry, with emphasis on encouraging frank discussions.

Discounted early-bird registration for the conference will soon be available at the NewSpace 2010 Registration Page, which will also provide information about the group rate at the Domain Hotel.

$500 bucks to register, youch! A far cry from the days of yore when the SFF held its first events back in the 1990s. Guess it keeps the hoi poloi out.

I was not able to attend this one. I do hope you post in the details for the 200 conference as I am waiting for that information. For NFL details check out nfl expert picks and nfl predictions.
