We welcomed Dr. Pat Patterson back to the program to discuss the upcoming 2015 SmallSat Conference to be held in Logan, UT from August 8-13. During our one segment 60 minute discussion, Dr. Patterson not only provided us with the history of the SmallSat conference over nearly three decades, but we focused on many of the highlights for this year’s event. You can follow along with us at the conference website, www.smallsat.org. In addition to talking about the keynote speaker, the CubeSat workshop, student completion, ride sharing, exhibitors, and more, we also talked conference logistics for registration and hotels in and near Logan. Dr. Patterson talked about the social events, networking, and the side programs offered this year. Highlights of the social events take place Tuesday evening with the parties by Orbital ATK and then by SpaceX & Space Services. Toward the end of the discussion, Pat reviewed smallsat industry stats over the past four years documenting the growth and changes within the industry, plus future smallsat plans which if they actually happened, the launch capacity for small satellites would have to significantly improve and expand. Still, the growth stats are reflective of the exciting progress in this segment of the space industry. If you are able to attend SmallSat this year, let me know and please give us reports about it on future Space Show programs.
