John Batchelor and I welcomed discussed the Covid-19 virus and the impact on space conferences and events plus the market and economic issues and how that might impact private sector space investment activity. I mentioned several space conferences and told how they were dealing with the virus from cancellation to be on watch for a later go or no go decision. Also discussed was the event at NASA Ames and the NASA Administrator virus statement for all of the NASA centers. We touched upon the economic issues the uncertainty resulting in the private investment side of commercial space.
