Everyone here at Schipul loves hi-tech, geeky things like robots, iphones, and rockets. Â That’s why we are super excited and honored to be helping SpaceUp Houston with tonight’s Commercial Spaceflight Panel where I will be helping as a volunteer in my usual tasmanian devil fashion, (imagine the whirling dust devil everywhere at once).
SpaceUp HoustonÂ provides an engagement platform to nuture new and radical concepts, help develop partnerships, and wants to help you create a future worth living in.
Their next event is tonight, August 18th and features a Commercial Spaceflight Panel with representatives from several aerospace companies including Virgin Galactic, XCOR, Armadillo Aerospace, Boeing, Sierra Nevada Corporation, and United Launce Alliance. Â These companies will be talking about their company’s objectives and where they currently stand timeline-wise for spaceflight projects, research and employment opportunities, commercial crew and their barriers to success, and other related topics.
The panel will be held from 7PM to 9PM tonight at the Lunar Planetary Institute in Clear Lake, TX near Johnson Space Center. Â Tickets for the commercial spaceflight panel are sold out and luckily, SpaceUp Houston has arranged to live stream the evening’s discussion.
After the panel, the audience will be invited to meet the panel members and mingle in the main lobby until 9:45pm.
Come join us tonight on SpaceUp Houston’s uStreamÂ and I’ll be the one behind the uStream chat so say Hi and let me know what questions to ask our panelists!
