ISDC on the Space Show

The Space Show Aired on May 3rd, 2009

Guests: Mark Hopkins and Tim Bailey. Topics: ISDC 2009, NSS, space solar power, continuing education credits. Mark and Tim were our guests today to discuss the upcoming ISDC 2009 in Champions Gate near Orlando, Florida. ISDC 2009 is scheduled for May 28-31, 2009. We discussed much of the programming for the conference, even some unique programming with an Estes rocket competition, continuing education credit, tours of the Kennedy Space Center and much more. Mark also told about the keynote and main speakers which are a representation of Who’s Who in space. You do not want to miss hearing what these people have to say. Space Solar Power (SSP) was mentioned as it is given extensive coverage at the conference. Mark also talked about the famous ATWG debate from Dec. 2008 where Pete Worden argued there was no business case for SSP. Mark provided some additional insights on this issue and suggested a better debate focus than the one used at the ATWG event. Tim and Mark pointed out some other interesting programming dealing with human factors, congressional advocacy training, and the gala evening, hotel and meal registration, etc. ISDC 2009 appears to be a great conference in the making and I believe it will be one of those events you will not want to miss.
