Astronauts report that seeing the Earth from space creates
a powerful experience called the “Overview Effect”
"The Overview Effect is the experience of seeing the Earth from a distance, especially from orbit or the Moon, and realizing the inherent unity and oneness of everything on the planet. The Effect represents a shift in perception wherein the viewer moves from identification with parts of the Earth to identification with the whole system.” – Frank White, author of The Overview Effect: Space Exploration and Human Evolution.

Overview Effect Conference Goals – Examining how the impact of mass spaceflight and The Overview Effect will change our world:
Astronauts will describe the reality of The Overview Effect on their own lives.
Brain/mind scientists will examine the cognitive nature of The Effect and suggest how The Overview Effect is hidden from us by the inherent limitations of human perception.
Artists and simulation media experts will give powerful demonstrations of how New Media technologies and arts can communicate the Overview Effect to Earth-bound millions.
Cultural leaders and futurists will explore how the coming of mass space travel and the Overview Effect will soon affect every aspect of world culture.
The Entire Team will begin the creation of an Overview Organization that will continue these initiatives in research, public education and space media development.
Special Video Addresses and Interviews with:
Rusty Schweickart – The Apollo 9 astronaut, co-founder of the Association of Space Explorers, chairman and founder of the B612 Foundation, an international leader in the effort to develop systems to protect the Earth from asteroid impacts.
“Doc Searls” – Senior editor of Linux Journal, co-author of the Cluetrain Manifesto: The End of business as Usual. One of the world's most quoted bloggers and a fellow at the Harvard Berkman Center for the Internet and Society.

Carter Emmart, Director of Astro-visualization at the Hayden Planetarium, will navigate and narrate a trip into space and a taste of the Overview Effect using the Hayden Planetarium's Uni-View Earth and Space Visualization Software shown here in Elumenati Incorporated's Dome Projection System.

1:30 pm Surviving a Bad Day in Space: Risk Management Architecture
A personal spaceflight company will be exposed to the risk of a catastrophic and highly public disaster that could mark the onset of troubles ranging from the short-term (business interruption, loss of equipment and crew, acute regulatory scrutiny) to the long-term (defending lawsuits and restoring consumer confidence). Whether the company emerges from the process stronger or as a forgotten footnote in the early history of commercial human spaceflight will be determined largely by the risk management plan laid by the company before the accident. This discussion will delve into the various components of sound risk management architecture for entrants into the personal spaceflight industry, including safety-oriented “best practices,” legal standards of care, liability-shifting tools, public relations and insurance.
Doug Griffith (chair) – Air Disaster Litigation Attorney
Bretton Alexander – Executive Director, Space Prizes and Wirefly X PRIZE Cup

3:30 pm Coffee Break
3:45 pm NewSpace for a New President?
2008 will see a U.S. Presidential election just five weeks after NASA’s 50th anniversary. Can any space issues break through the background noise of the campaign? What “space status quo” will a new occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania inherit on January 20, 2009? Will the “Vision” still be relevant? Will a new President grant a reprieve to the Shuttle’s death sentence? In a world of threats to military space assets, global environmental concerns, and Virgin Galactic, will anyone care about NASA’s human spaceflight? Will NewSpace see new opportunities for policy innovation and political support? Answering this and other questions will be a panel of people who have worked in space policy positions for the last four U.S. Presidents.
James A. M. Muncy (chair) – President, PoliSpace
Lori Garver – Capital Space
Alan Ladwig – Whitney, Bradley & Brown, Inc.
Courtney Stadd – Capitol Solutions
4:45 pm Beyond COTS: Future Commercial Opportunities and the Vision for Space Exploration
Due to ongoing COTS efforts and the potential of space tourism, much of the attention in potential commercial opportunities is focused on orbital and suborbital space transportation efforts. But there are other opportunities, both near- and far-term, that may develop in support of NASA’s Global Exploration Strategy and future Lunar Architecture. Although NASA has been explicitly directed to “encourage commercial space capabilities,” the specific roles of commercial development efforts in the Vision are as yet undefined. This discussion will focus on potential supply and demand opportunities from both the private and NASA perspectives, effective actions that the latter can take to benefit the former, and a frank exchange of views from multiple perspectives.

9:15 am Keynote Address
Alex Tai – COO, Virgin Galactic and Chairman, Personal Spacelight Federation
9:45 am Commercial Orbital Transport – Cheap Access is Still The Key
With so much attention focused on Sub-orbital space flight, the real goal of reaching orbital space is often overlooked. How much harder is it to get to orbit? Who is building the real spacecraft that will open orbital space? How do we leverage today’s private space industry into an orbital economy? Can today’s problematic government space transportation system be turned into something useful? Can Space Shuttle be replaced by a fleet of varied commercial space vehicles?
Michael Belfiore (chair) – Author, Rocketeers: How a Visionary Band of Business Leaders, Engineers, and Pilots Is Boldly Privatizing Space
George French – CEO, RocketPlane Kistler
Gary C. Hudson – CEO, AirLaunch, LLC
Dennis A. Stone – Assistant Manager for Commercial Space Development, NASA’s Commercial Crew and Cargo Program
Lee Valentine – EVP, Space Studies Institute
10:45 am Coffee Break
11:00 am New Moon Race – Will NewSpace Get There First?
The broad space community clearly supports the core goals of the Vision for Space Exploration, but debate continues concerning specific technical and programmatic choices as defined in NASA’s Exploration Systems Architecture. Most important to discuss and address are serious concerns about the program’s overall affordability and sustainability, echoing many of the past problems raised about the original Space Exploration Initiative and the Space Station program. How can American government and industry work together to establish an expanding and evolving sustainable economy on the Moon?
Charles J. Lauer (chair) – Vice President of Business Development, RocketPlane Kistler
Steve Durst – Founder, International Lunar Observatory Association
Hideki Kanayama – Director of Aerospace Policy and Industry, CSP Japan, Inc.
John N. Kohut – Senior Program Manager, Commercial Space Exploration, Raytheon

12:00 pm Lunch
Eric Anderson – CEO, Space Adventures
1:30 pm LoST & SPACE – Two (Space)ships Passing In the Night?
Although the U.S. refused to sign the Law of the Sea Treaty (LoST) in 1982, it has generally accepted all of the Treaty's provisions—except for the command-economy controls and taxation on deep seabed mining, which strongly resembled the Moon Treaty and shared the same "common heritage of mankind" principle. The U.S. finally signed LoST in 1994 after revisions to these provisions. Although the treaty has been stalled in the Senate ever since, the Bush Administration has recently pushed for ratification citing national security concerns.

This panel will discuss the consequences of accepting the "common heritage of mankind" principle and the revised resource appropriation provisions for the future use of space resources.
James E. Dunstan (chair) – Partner, Garvey Schubert Barer
David Gump – President, Transformational Space Corporation (t/Space)
Ron Kohl – R. J. Kohl & Associates, Space Frontier Foundation Space Settlement Project Manager
Mark Simonoff – Attorney Advisor, Office of Legal Advisor
2:15 pm Space-Based Solar Power Development in Today’s Political Environment
Space-Based Solar Power has been proposed as an environmentally friendly solution to meet our growing demands for energy. However, support for exploring the development of this technology has waxed and waned. During this session, we are providing a forum for public input to the National Security Space Office Study on Space-Based Solar Power (SBSP). We will discuss such topics as how do we create a sustainable SBSP program, what are the next reasonable and viable steps in SBSP development, and what technologies are ready to advance to the demonstration stage.
Margo Deckard (chair) – Space Solar Power Project Manager, Space Frontier Foundation

John Mankins – President, ARTEMIS Innovation Management Solutions, LLC; President, Space Power Association
Col. Michael Coyote Smith – Space-Based Solar Power Architecture Study, National Security Space Office
Dr. Paul Werbos – Program Director, National Science Foundation
3:00 pm Coffee Break
3:15 pm Born After Apollo
Is the Vision for Space Exploration (VSE) inspirational to a generation that cannot remember the exhilarating achievements of the Space Race? More importantly, is NASA’s implementation of the VSE encouraging students and young professionals to pursue a career in aerospace? Do NewSpace entrepreneurial ventures have more influence on a youth accustomed to the internet revolution? How can government space programs change to satisfy a new era of leadership? What is the post-Apollo generation’s view of a future in space, and what changes will these young leaders make in government and industry?
