Henry Vanderbilt will be on the show on Friday with a “mystery guest.” Hope this is good news about a resurrection of the conference.
I’ll miss it because I’ll be attending this event in DC. Flying up from Orlando this afternoon.
[Afternoon update, from MCO]
Welp, missed my flight from MCO to DCA by ten minutes. Now on standby for a 5:55 that gets into DC a little after 8

Here’s the official press release:
We are very pleased to announce that there will be a Space Access Conference next spring, April 18th-21st 2019, in California’s Bay Area at the Fremont Marriott Silicon Valley.
Space Access 2019 will be run by a team from the Experimental Rocket Propulsion Society with advice & support from us. The SA2019 Conference Chair will be ERPS’ Michael Wallis, with much relevant experience with both space and conference running. Proceeds (if any) will benefit both ERPS and SAS.
We expect the conference style will evolve – that’s one of the benefits of bringing in a new crew with fresh perspectives. But the essence of Space Access will remain the same: Three intensive days focusing on the technology, business, and politics of radically cheaper space transportation, discussed in depth by a cross-section of the people making it happen.
We will post occasional pointers to updated conference information on the space-access.org website, but the primary web page for SA2019 information will be https://sa2019.erps.org/. Check it out for conference hotel and registration information, and for the conference program as it evolves.
See you all there in six months!
About the same in terms of distance from LA, maybe a little further. But I look forward to it.
