Comercial Space News from NM Conference

The International Symposium on Personal and Commercial Spaceflight (ISPCS) 2010 is underway in New Mexico and a steady stream of reports are coming out. Clarke Lindsey was unable to make it there this year but is doing a tremendous job of capturing reports from those who are there.

Most interesting are the reports coming out about Bigelow Aerospace and its plans for commercial space habitats. They have now booked six countries as first customers and are addressing a whole range of issues including launch sites for getting customers to the space stations. Wallops Island, VA is one of the sites Bigelow is considering.

Doug Messier has posted a number of pics of Bigelow's exhibit at the conference.
