We welcomed back Dr. Pat Hynes to tell us about this year’s International Symposium For Personal and Commercial Spaceflight (ISPCS) from Oct. 15-16, Las Cruces, NM.  During out 68 minute program, Dr. Hynes noted that this is the 10th Anniversary of this important symposium event (check it out at http://www.ispcs.com).  The theme for this year’s program is “The Power of Ten” which our guest explained in the context of many of the speakers, panels and talks.  For example, she noted the entry on the agenda for Bill Gerstenmaier, Associate Administrator, Human Exploration and Operations, NASA, which said “One to the power of ten is one. Two the power of ten is…more. Never before have the titles of ‘new space’ and ‘old space’ been as trivial as they are today. Bill Gerstenmaier discusses how to leverage both the strengths and vulnerabilities of the aerospace industry to foster greater collaboration as we reach new powers of ten together.”  Also noted was George Sowers of ULA who “will discuss the concept of power as presented in his book The Philosophy for the Future. In this conception, power is defined as power-to or capability and is optimistic and affirming. A formal definition of power will be given and the various kinds of power will be discussed including economic, political and scientific. Sowers will argue that that the overarching goal of humanity should be to maximize the power of humankind in the long run. Human expansion beyond earth in general and commercial development of space in particular are seen to be perfectly aligned with that overarching goal.”  Pat also said that ULA, SpaceX and the Air Force would be there for questions about their plans, disagreements, etc.  Along these lines, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Space Policy for the DOD, Doug Loverro, is a keynote speaker on the topic of “A Collision in Space: The Interaction of Commercial Space Desires and Defense Space Needs.”  Pat went into some detail to explain just how different this event is from typical space conferences.  Having attended many of the ISPCS events, I can attest to the fact that they are very unique and highly valuable for those attending, participating and speaking.  Go to the Agenda on the website to see all the keynote, panels, and Spotlight Talk speakers and subject descriptions.  Toward the end of our discussion, we talked about conference logistics, shuttles, and the special Friday tour to Spaceport America.  We also learned that there would be a 5:30 AM Boeing Run.  Check out what Pat said about this event.  Looking ahead for those of you doing advance planning, the ISPCS will be Oct. 14-15 in 2015.  The theme for the 2015 event will be “Making A Difference” which Pat explained prior to the end of the discussion.

Please post your comments/questions on TSS blog. If you have event questions use the contact information on the ISPCS website.  You can reach Dr. Hynes through the ISPCS website, Space Grant New Mexico, or me.

We welcomed Dr. Pat Hynes back to the program to discuss this year’s ISPCS.  During the first segment of our 1 hour 58 minute program, Dr. Hynes introduced us to this year’s symposium which is in Las Cruces from Oct. 16-17.  For detailed symposium information, registration, and more, please visit http://www.ispcs.com.  Pat started by telling us about attending a Virgin Galactic event in Mojave last week, including aspects of space medicine applicable to Virgin and human spaceflight.  Next, Doug called on his way back from Vandenberg and he told us about seeing the Falcon 9 launch and his impressions, then he asked Pat about the suborbitals ramping up for orbital spaceflight and if that was in their plans.  Pat said yes, talked about Point to Point Travel, some of the challenges, and orbital HSF in general.  I also added some information to the discussion.  During the balance of the first segment, Pat went through the first day of panels at the symposium offering highlights and insights not listed on the website.  Later, she talked about speaker John Gertner and his book, “The Idea Factory,” which addresses Bell Labs and innovation.  Pat referred to this book, Bell Labs and Innovation several more times during our discussion.

In the second segment, we picked up with the Wednesday afternoon program featuring Sandy Magnus, Executive Director, AIAA.  The importance of Innovation remained a key thread in our discussion and it is a major theme of the symposium.  During the balance of the second segment, Pat guided us through the agenda, again providing us with insights not listed on the website.  We also talked about the social and networking aspects of the conference which are outstanding!  IP was also discussed and the subject, including patents, is part of the symposium agenda.  We also talked a lot about NASA Flight Opportunities.  Near the end of our discussion, Pat talked about the tour of Spaceport America for Friday, Oct. 18.

Please post your comments and questions on The Space Show blog URL above.  You can contact Pat’s office for more information by calling (575) 646-6414.

Guest:  Dr. Pat Hynes.  Topics:  International symposium for Personal & Commercial Spaceflight (www.ispcs.com).  You are invited to comment, ask questions, and discuss the Space Show program/guest(s) on the Space Show blog, https://thespaceshow.wordpress.com. Comments, questions, and any discussion must be relevant and applicable to Space Show programming. Transcripts of Space Show programs are not permitted without prior written consent from The Space Show (even if for personal use) & are a violation of the Space Show copyright.  We welcomed Dr. Pat Hynes to the program to discuss the ISPCS 2012 Symposium from Oct. 17-18, 2012 in Las Cruces, New Mexico.  I suggest you open the Symposium website and follow along with our discussion.  Also, as we talked about the Symposium, the agenda, goals and objectives, specific speakers, events, meals, etc, during both segments, this archive review will not be in segments as our topics were overlapping.  Dr. Hynes started us out talking about commercial markets and customers for the evolving and developing commercial space industry, a theme throughout our program and the Symposium. In fact, the official conference theme is “The Demand. The Direction.”  Dr. Hynes took us through the agenda, day by day, but added details about the speakers not readily available by looking at the website.  Do follow along with our discussion.  We also talked conference logistics, hotels, travel, registration, and of course meals from breakfast through to dinner.  Dr. Hynes stressed the business approach of this conference and in fact, I highlighted this near the end of our discussion given Pat’s academic credentials are the PhD in Business Administration which affords her a unique commercial, financial, market, and business perspective for addressing space industry growth, development and issues.

Please post your comments/questions on our blog. If you want more information on the Symposium, use www.ispcs.com/contact_us.php or nmsgc@nmsu.edu.  Dr. Hynes provided her email address on air should you want to contact her.  Finally, I plan on attending the Symposium this year.  If you go, make sure you fine me and let’s talk, visit, etc.
