Space Transport News Special Edition:
NewSpace 2008
Space Frontier Foundation Conference
July 17-July 19, 2008

NewSpace 2008


The Space Frontier Foundation's annual meeting NewSpace 2008 took place on July 17-19, 2008 in Washington, D.C.

The conference format consisted primarily of a series of panel sessions in which short presentations were given by each panelist, followed by a discussion among the panelists and moderator. The session would conclude with a Q&A between the panel and audience.

I live-blogged many of the panels and presentations. The content of these postings consisted mostly of rough notes and occasional links to relevant resources.

Below I provide a list of links to these postings on the Space Transport News blog. I also include some miscellaneous other resources related to the meeting.
