The Space Frontier Foundation is proud to announce the list of speakers presenting at the NewSpace 2009 Conference. Industry leaders and visionaries will cover topics focusing on future space ventures on Saturday, incorporating the corporate side of the Newspace industry on Sunday, and envisioning our next giant leaps on Monday. The speakers will culminate the weekend with a look forward to future of mankind’s presence in space and by paying tribute to the past with the Apollo Anniversary Gala.
The conference is a unique chance to assess the thoughts and plans coming from the leaders of the Newspace movement. Discover the entrepreneurial plans behind recent interest in returning to the moon from such pioneers as Dr. Robert Richards of Odyssey Moon Limited. Is space solar power truly viable and are the suborbital flights fueled by hope or hype? Eric Anderson of Space Adventures, Taylor Dinerman of the Wall Street Journal, and others can help you find the answers to such questions during the conference programs and Q & A sessions. Dr. S. Pete Worden, Director of NASA Ames Research Center, is tentatively scheduled for a keynote and panel discussion Monday night entitled, Where Do We Go From Here? Be a part of the discussion interpreting why successful and non-successful NewSpace companies turned out the way they did with Rex Ridenoure and help guide the future of the high frontier.
