Commercial spaceflight meeting in NM this week

The [_International Symposium on Personal and Commercial Spaceflight_][1] (ISPCS 2010) is getting underway today in Las Cruces, NM. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it this year but I expect there will be several people posting Tweeter and blog reports during the event.

The [program][2] looks great, e.g. I sure would like to have heard the discussion panel titled, “The path forward from DC-X/XA”.

Robert Bigelow will be on a couple of panels including “Crew transportation systems: The game changer in human spaceflight”. Maybe he will announce this week the names of the [six countries that have signed up][3] to use his orbital habitats.

On Friday, Richard Branson will arrive for the Spaceport America Runway Dedication.
