Space Future has been on something of a hiatus of late. With the concept of Space Tourism steadily increasing in acceptance, and the advances of commercial space, much of our purpose could be said to be achieved. But this industry is still nascent, and there's much to do. So...watch this space.
Attending any of the several space conferences is like standing atop an apex of time. Face this way, and you can look back at where we were, and what has happened since the last time we looked. Take a quarter turn, see and hear where we are now and the people making news. Take another quarter turn, and you are facing the future—what is yet to be done, who is going to do it, and how.
Creating the future, or living in the past? That is the theme of NewSpace2008, the conference being produced by Space Frontier Foundation (SFF) on July 17-19, 2008 in Crystal City, Virginia (just outside Washington, D.C.), at The Doubletree Hotel.
