Los Angeles, CA, September 4, 1998 – Nearly thirty years ago, man first set foot on the Moon. Conventional wisdom says it’ll be at least another thirty years before private citizens will routinely live, work, and play in space.

If you want to get the inside story, then join the space pioneers who are leading the way at Space Frontier Conference 7. This will be held over Columbus Day weekend, October 9-11, 1998, at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel, Los Angeles International Airport, CA.

“This conference is THE EVENT for anyone who wants to understand or become a part of the human breakout into space,” says conference chair Kerinia Cusick. “We’re assembling key leaders – from CEOs to congressmen, NASA managers to national reporters, financiers to film makers, scientists to science fiction writers – all of whom are passionate about making the routine use of space a reality.”

Entitled “Space: The Revolution Is Now!” and presented by the Space Frontier Foundation, the conference is co-sponsored by: FINDS, the Foundation for the Non-Governmental Development of Space; ProSpace, the citizen’s space lobby; and Rotary Rocket Company.

“This is the only conference where you will find such an eclectic mix of visionaries sharing ideas and taking steps to turn exciting visions of space into reality,” continued Cusick. “Whether you are an entrepreneur with a dream, an investor with a desire to capitalize on this exploding industry, a job seeker looking to work for an innovative company, or a citizen who is tired of the gloom and doom scenarios painted for tomorrow and simply wants to know what the next century will really look like – you need to be there!”
