I’m just about to head out from the NewSpace 2009 conference.Â Honestly, I ditched out of all of today, and parts of the other days, between my propellant depot panel, and the white paper I was working on.Â The panel went pretty well, though I’d only give myself a B+ overall.Â One of these days I’m going to learn a tactful way of reining people back in when they decide to “ask a statement” instead of a asking a question.Â Most of the questions were excellent, but I didn’t get the time to ask the two questions I really wanted to go into — how should depots be funded? and what advice would they give to Administrator Bolden regarding depots?
It was a fun conference, but at this point all I care about is getting up to Oregon to see my wife and kids again.Â They’re what makes all of this worth it.
