The International Space Development
Conference is the annual meeting of the National
Space Society and is usually co-sponsored with
several other organizations.
The NSS is one of the largest space enthusiast organizations
and is one that makes advocacy of human spaceflight
and space settlement its primary goals. The organization's
big tent welcomes a broad membership that includes
everyone from youngsters to seniors, from engineers
and scientists to students and artists. So the panels
and presentation topics at the conferences range
from the technical to the educational to the political
to the artistic.
This year the ISDC was held in Washington
D. C. from May 29th to June 1st. It was also preceded
by the companion meeting Space Investment Summit
4 on May 28th. I attended the Summit and three
of the four days of the ISDC. Over 900 people came
to the ISDC. About 100 people attended the SIS.
I live-blogged many of the panels
and presentations. The content of these postings
consisted primarily of fairly rough notes and occasional
links to relevant resources.
Below I list my postings along with
as many of the postings from other bloggers at the
meetings that I could find. I also include misc.
resources such as links to various articles about
