Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Guest: Dr. Pat Hynes, Director of the New Mexico Space Grant Consortium and the brains, energy, and beauty behind the Fourth International Symposium on Personal and Commercial Spaceflight, was the guest for this program. You can learn more about the Symposium by visiting www.ispcs.com. Dr. Hynes took us through the program and we discussed the speakers, the format of the symposium, student rates, many related topics, and networking opportunities. You will want to hear about this Symposium, check out the website, and make your plans to attend. As you will hear, the Symposium format is different this year and the focus is on making profits in space. One listener asked if there would be Halloween candy as there had been in past years. Never fear, the candy will be there along with a new dessert recipe. We digressed from the Symposium for important updates about the New Mexico Spaceport and we even learned that we will soon be able to fly a payload at an upcoming symposium and recover it right away. Listen to what Pat has to tell us about the future development for this program. Dr. Hynes reminded us of the early bird registration fee, which ends on September 1, 2008. You can register online and make hotel arrangements as well. In response to a listener comment, Pat recommended flying to El Paso, Texas and then driving 45 minutes to Las Cruces as this is easier than driving over four hours from Albuquerque .You can contact Dr. Pat Hynes with more Symposium questions, comments or just seeking additional information about this important event.
