ULA SPACE 2008 Papers

There were a few interesting papers being presented at the Space 2008 conference that some of my friends at ULA sent me.  I’m going to wait until after the conference is over, so I don’t steal their thunder, but they are worth a quick review when I have the time.  One of the regards the work Frank Zegler and Bernard Kutter have done on Propellant Depots (continuing the work Frank talked about on my Propellant Depots panel at Space Access 2008), and the other regards a clever way of introducing some reusability into the Atlas V launch vehicle.  I’ll update this later this week with the details.

The following two tabs change content below.
