We welcomed Dr. Pat Hynes to the program to discuss the ISPCS 2012 Symposium from Oct. 17-18, 2012 in Las Cruces, New Mexico. I suggest you open the Symposium website and follow along with our discussion. Also, as we talked about the Symposium, the agenda, goals and objectives, specific speakers, events, meals, etc, during both segments, this archive review will not be in segments as our topics were overlapping. Dr. Hynes started us out talking about commercial markets and customers for the evolving and developing commercial space industry, a theme throughout our program and the Symposium. In fact, the official conference theme is "The Demand. The Direction." Dr. Hynes took us through the agenda, day by day, but added details about the speakers not readily available by looking at the website. Do follow along with our discussion. We also talked conference logistics, hotels, travel, registration, and of course meals from breakfast through to dinner. Dr. Hynes stressed the business approach of this conference and in fact, I highlighted this near the end of our discussion given Pat's academic credentials are the PhD in Business Administration which affords her a unique commercial, financial, market, and business perspective for addressing space industry growth, development and issues. Please post your comments/questions on our blog. If you want more information on the Symposium, use www.ispcs.com/contact_us.php or firstname.lastname@example.org. Dr. Hynes provided her email address on air should you want to contact her. Finally, I plan on attending the Symposium this year. If you go, make sure you fine me and let's talk, visit, etc.
