Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Dr. Pat Hynes was the guest for this Space Show program to discuss the upcoming Personal Spaceflight Symposium in Las Cruces, NM from Oct. 24-25, 2007 ( We began our discussion with an overview of the Symposium as well as X-Prize Cup. Dr. Hynes and I then discussed the speakers, topics, and agenda in detail. This is a power packed program with great speakers and topics so not only will you want to hear about it on this program, you will want to attend this program. Listeners asked Dr. Hynes many questions ranging from registration, logistic, and hotel questions to issues relating to the topics and speakers that will comprise the Personal Spaceflight Symposium program. Pat had much to say about the background of many of the speakers, information which is not posted on the website or may not be known by everyone so you will definitely want to hear what she has to say about this conference. You can call the New Mexico Space Grant office for information about the Symposium at (505) 646-6414. You can send Pat your comments and questions through me at but if your questions pertain to the symposium, its best to use There is still sufficient time to register for this program but hotel space becomes very tight as we get closer to the event. I urge you to select your hotel early from the list on their website, mention the conference code as shown there, and book early. If you attend this program and I strongly urge you to do so, please find me to say hello. As I have been saying all year since the 2006 Personal Spaceflight Symposium, this is an outstanding conference, one of the very best I attend each year and given the program discussed on today's show, 2007 will be even better.
