Space Frontier Conference 9: Odyssey's Horizon
Los Angeles, California October 19-22, 2000
THE place to be for anyone interested in space is Space Frontier Conference 9! This year's conference will feature the latest news about MirCorp and the world's FIRST commercial space station, the latest on the New Moon Race, a special session on space enrepreneurism, and Extreme Space, where $15,000 in grant money will be awarded to young space innovators.

Among our speakers and presenters will be Dennis Tito, scheduled to be MirCorp's first Citizen Explorer; CNN's Miles O'Brian; Mars experts Pascal Lee and Chris McKay, and a host of new launch vehicle developers, lunar explorers, businesspeople and visionaries working to open the Space Frontier.

New sessions at this year's conference include:

Entrepreneurial Space – a panel of investment professionals will discuss what it takes to put together a viable business plan - and then will offer feedback on selected business plans! After incorporating this feedback, the companies will then have a chance to present their plans to a wider audience of technology investors. Visit the Entrepreneurial Space page for additional info - including how to submit your business plan for consideration!

Extreme Space – The Call For Papers is out, and $15,000 in grant money from FINDS is waiting to be awarded! Extreme Space is looking for new, creative approaches to the obstacles to opening the space frontier and establishing permanent human settlemets in space from a new generation of visionaries. The Space Studies Institute is teaming with FINDS and the Space Frontier Foundation to host this event. Visit the Extreme Space page for rules and information on how to enter!
