NSS Executive Director Addresses Media at Next-Generation Suborbital Researchers Conference

National Space Society Executive Director Paul E. Damphousse addresses the media at the 3rd annual Next-Generation Suborbital Researchers Conference (NSRC) today in Palo Alto, CA.

“The NSRC has quickly become the premier event for the advancement of research activity within the burgeoning suborbital community,” Damphousse said. “We at NSS feel this compelling new sector, while opening up new research opportunities, will have an even greater impact on advancing low-cost access to space through routine and repeatable missions. These missions will advance the technologies and techniques needed in our ultimate quest to become a spacefaring civilization – NSS is proud to support these efforts.”

About NSRC: A new generation of space vehicles capable of economically delivering payloads and researchers is coming on line in 2012 and 2013. These vehicles will revolutionize space access by providing frequent, low-cost access to space, and the capability to carry research and education crew members, thereby simplifying and further reducing the cost of experimentation in space. They will also carry automated experiments for technology and TRL (Technology Readiness Level) demonstrations, and for atmospheric science, solar physics, microgravity science, planetary science, space life science, space physics, and education and public outreach (EPO).

NSRC-2012 brings together researchers from government, industry, and academia and provides a forum for researchers, educators, and other users to learn about the research and EPO capabilities of these new systems, their experiments, and EPO integration processes. NSRC-2012 will also provide the user community for these vehicles a key opportunity to make inputs on vehicle design and operational requirements. For more information go to nsrc.swri.org.
