Los Angeles, CA, October 10, 2000 – Actor and congressional candidate Jerry Doyle, who starred as “Michael Garibaldi” on the hit television series, Babylon 5, will address attendees of the Space Frontier Foundation's ninth annual conference on Saturday, October 21, at the Marriott/Manhattan Beach in Los Angeles, CA.

Doyle, Republican candidate for representative from California's 24th congressional district, has issued a position paper on space exploration, and believes in the Foundation's basic tenet of promoting free enterprise in space.

“We share Mr. Doyle's interest in looking beyond our small planet when considering the future of mankind,” said Michael Heney, Foundation conference chairman. “As the exploration and opening of the space frontier shifts from the public to the private sector, we believe that space policy must be a part of the public dialog.”

“Our spirit for exploration and scientific understanding must be fulfilled,” remarked Doyle, whose previous career in business and finance includes a ten-year stint on Wall Street in investment banking. “We must lay the foundation in order to inch costs down for the free market to help move humanity along,” he continued.

Space Frontier Foundation's conference will include speakers and panel discussions on space transportation, legal and policy challenges, solar power, doing business on space stations, extreme space, space habitats and resources, and citizen exploration and space tourism. For more information or to register for the conference, to be held October 19-22, see http://www.space-frontier.org/Events/SFC9/, or call 1-800-787-7223.

Space transportation will be the focus of several panels at Space Frontier Conference 9. The conference will be held October 19-22, 2000, at the Manhattan Beach Marriott, located near LA's International Airport (LAX).

The Space Frontier Foundation is an organization of people dedicated to opening the Space Frontier to human settlement as rapidly as possible. Our goals include protecting the Earth's fragile biosphere and creating a freer and more prosperous life for each generation by using the unlimited energy and material resources of space. Our purpose is to unleash the power of free enterprise and lead a united humanity permanently into the Solar System.

The Frontier Enabling Test
Our definition of a "frontier enabling" technology or policy is one which has as its effect the acceleration of the creation of low cost access to the space frontier for private citizens and companies, enables or accelerates our use of space resources, and/or accelerates the rate at which wealth can be generated in space. In other words, is the project or policy going to provide a return on the national investment, if we define "return" to be the economically sustainable human habitation of space?
