Next-Generation Suborbital Researchers Conference (NSRC2010)

Category:

Date: 18-20 Feb 2010

Location: Boulder, COlorado US,

A new generation of space vehicles capable of economically delivering payloads and researchers is coming on line beginning in 2010. These vehicles will revolutionize space access by providing frequent, low-cost access to space.

Fields that will potentially benefit include atmospheric science, solar physics, microgravity science, planetary science, space life science, space physics, and education and public outreach (EPO).

NSRC2010 will provide a forum to learn about the research and EPO capabilities of these new systems, along with their experiment and EPO integration processes, and to provide input on vehicle design requirements for science and education.

The meeting will be held from 18-20 February 2010 in Boulder, Colorado.

The abstract deadline for the conference will be November 12, 2009.

To subscribe to a mailing list to receive e-mail updates about the conference, please submit the Indication of Intent form by October 14, 2009.

Astronauts, researchers, educators, senior government officials including the director of NASA's Ames Research Center, Dr. Pete Worden, and the head of the FAA's Office of Commercial Space Transportation, Dr. George Nield, and representatives from commercial space companies and the Commercial Spaceflight Federation, will be among the speakers at the Next-Generation Suborbital Researchers Conference on February 18-20, 2010. The agenda and speaker list for the conference, which will take place in Boulder, Colorado, was publicly released today and is available for download at http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meetings/nsrc2010/pdf/program.pdf .

The 2010 Next-Generation Suborbital Researchers Conference, which is being convened by the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), the Universities Space Research Association (USRA), the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI), and the Commercial Spaceflight Federation (CSF), is intended to allow scientists, engineers, and educators to learn about the research and education capabilities of commercial suborbital spacecraft, and to hear from this broad community on potential research and education applications and user requirements.
