First Report From Orlando

The Next-generation Suborbital Researchers Conference kicked off tonight with a reception at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. There was muchnetworking accomplished and alcohol and food consumed, although not necessarily in that order.

It looks like it will be an interesting couple of days. It seems that the Southwest Research Institute’s decision to purchase six flights on XCOR’s Lynx is only part of the story. The full scope of the work will be revealed tomorrow. Not clear what that exactly means, but stay tuned here and at @spacecom.  There is a press conference on Monday afternoon that may answer those questions.
