Space Transport News Special Edition:
NewSpace 2009
Space Frontier Foundation Conference
July 17-July 20, 2009


Dennis Wingo discusses commercial lunar possibilities.




The Space Frontier Foundation's latest annual meeting NewSpace 2009 took place on July 17-20, 2009 in at NASA Ames Research Center, Mountain View, California

The conference format consisted of both individual presentations and 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.

The attendence was as much or more than in previous years, which is an accomplishment considering the state of the economy.

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.

Daily Notes

NewSpace Policy


Michael Potter and Joe Carroll discuss the Orphans of Apollo film and the plan mentioned
in the film about using an electrodynamic tether to boost Mir to higher orbit.

Evening

  • Welcome remarks
  • Showing of the film Orphans of Apollo.
  • I was without my laptop for this initial event and just wrote some notes down.
    • Bob Richards began with an introduction to the Michael Potter who in turn introduced the film.
    • After the film, there were some comments and a Q&A by film maker Michael Potter, space investor Tom Olson, space tether expert Joe Carroll.
    • Tom Olson read a statement from Walt Anderson.
    • Joe Carroll talked about the plans discussed in the film to use an electrodynamic tether to boost Mir to a higher orbit. Tough the tether did not get through the ITAR process until the day that it was announced that Mir would be deorbited, but Carroll thought it was a coincidence rather than a conspiracy.
    • One of the conclusions Potter came away from making the film was that 'politics always wins".
