We welcomed Dr. Sean Casey back to the program to discuss updates with the Silicon Valley Space Center and their new project, the Moffett Federal Airfield (MFA) project for establishing NewSpace related office and lab facilities at Moffett Field. During the first segment of this 90 minute program, we talked about the upcoming NewSpace Business Plan Competition, the Silicon Valley Space Center projects and workshops, and the benefits of membership in the organization. For more information, please visit www.svsc.org. During both segments of the program, Dr. Casey provided several email addresses for listeners to obtain additional information about the various projects. Sean Casey's address is sean.casey@siliconvalleyspacecenter.org. He also summarized all the addresses at the end of the discussion. In this segment, Dr. Casey also discussed space entrepreneurism, cited several examples of it, and we talked about innovation. Toward the end of the segment, he brought us current with many of their planned events and then he introduced us to the "Moffett Field Problem" which he said was being solved by the MFA project which we talked more about in the second segment. In our next segment, Sean did go into detail explaining the MFA Project, the bid that GSA will decide on within a year and the email address to use for more information, mfa@siliconvalleyspacecenter.org. Our guest talked about plans for Hanger One and the other hangers, and that they were looking for this project to create a center for innovation, business support and much more. Sean also talked about offering business support, mentoring programs, support of existing programs such as the BNASA Flight Opportunities Program and getting technology to the ISS and more. Information on these topics can be obtained by emailing newspace@siliconvalleyspacecenter.org. Another project Sean spoke about was the upcoming PongSat Workshop plus events that will be held at the Hacker DoJo in Mountain View, CA. Please post your comments/questions on The Space Show blog.
