Space Transport News Special Edition:
ISDC 2008
International Space Development Conference
May 29-June 1, 2008
+
Space Investment Summit, May 28, 2008
Washington D.C.

ISDC 2008


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 the meeting.
