Ok, for those of you with entrepreneurial space aspirations, who think that your plan isn’t just another flavor of kool-aid, it’s time to step up and represent (so to speak).

The third in a series of Space Investment Summits, otherwise known as SIS-3 (clever, no?) is being held this December in Silicon Valley, offering would be future space titans of industry the opportunity to present to well-heeled investor types (angels and VCs). You must, of course, prequalify – the application process is on the event website:

SIS-3 Registration

So now’s your chance… let’s see who can make the cut, and potentially get some megabucks to get their venture on the path to stardom (sorry, couldn’t resist).

And yes, yours truly will be kicking off the event with an overview presentation of the Space Industry for the attendees, so you can’t say you weren’t warned.


It Was Safer Flying Against the Nazis… March 7, 2007

Jeff Bell’s scorching editorial on Space Daily skewers the suborbital tourism market six ways from sunday, through a thorough disection of the risks and safety record of rocket-powered suborbital flight to date.

It doesn’t matter if your favourite beast is a rocketplane, DC-X lookalike, or spaceship one – he does an admirable job of ripping them apart.

I’ll be interested to see the reaction from the kool-aid crowd to this one.

Kudos, Jeff.
