Registration for the Space Frontier Foundation’s NewSpace 2009 Conference Extended

June 22, 2009 Press Releases

Honor the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing by spending 4 days discussing the latest developments in the NewSpace industry at the NewSpace 2009 Conference. The Space Frontier Foundation has extended online registration until July 1st, 2009 for space professionals and enthusiasts everywhere.

Attendees at the conference will not only listen to giants in the industry speak, but will also have access to intriguing exhibits ranging from NewSpace media and entertainment to the latest technologies. Network with fellow enthusiasts at the
Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS), Teachers in Space, and the National Space Society (NSS) booths or pick up gear at the Space Frontier Storefront. You will also learn about the launch of the International Space University’s new MBA program at the ISU exhibit.

Another of the exciting exhibits is VirtuePlay’s premier of the Lunar Racing Championship game. Attendees will have the opportunity to play “LRC” game on D-Box motion gaming seats, creating the feeling of off-roading on the moon and flying around craters in one-sixth gravity.

““Lunar Racing Championship” (LRC) was developed using NASA’s lunar topography from the 1994 Clementine mission, to provide immersion racing on the moon in 3D. The software realistically simulates the moon’s low gravity, and lack of atmosphere. Racing vehicles off-road is pedestrian compared to piloting advanced rocket cars off-world in no atmosphere. “LRC” puts you in the cockpit of a futuristic racing machine that is part rally car, part spaceship for high speed competition set within the “magnificent desolation” of Earth’s moon.”
