Space Frontier Conference 10
"In Search of: '2001'"
by Carol Pinchefsky
Los Angeles, California
18-21 October 2001

Space Frontier Conference 10 will bring scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs working on real life space odysseys to Los Angeles this October to share their progress with the public.

The Space Frontier Foundation, an organization of people dedicated to opening the space frontier to human settlement as rapidly as possible, goes "In Search of '2001'" Thursday, October 18, through Sunday, October 21, at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel near the L.A. International Airport (6101 West Century Blvd; Los Angeles, CA 90045; Phone: 310-642-1111; Fax: 310-410-1267). It's an opportunity to meet and talk with the people making things happen in space, hear their latest papers and progress reports, and sit in as they discuss and debate their different approaches.

Space Frontier Conference 10 presentations and workshops will cover not only developments toward private space travel and tourism, but timely issues such as getting solar energy from space. Space solar sails, nearby asteroid tracking, space education, space colonies, a return to the Moon, women in space and Mars are among the other topics. There will also be exhibits, receptions, an art show and parties-a chance to hang with the people opening the space frontier and see what they're like after hours.  

For additional registration info, go to the Space Frontier website or call the Foundation at 800-78-SPACE (800-787-7223).
