Does anyone know if ISPCS will be posting videos like they did for last year's conference?  I don't see much coverage of the conference last week.

A shame :( I would expect videos, but expect to wait quite awhile. Last year's conference was at the same time in October and videos were eventually uploaded to YouTube starting in early November and not finishing until late December.

Suggest you ask about the effectiveness of the ERP software in doing cost recovery models for vehicles. (They got it from Tesla, and its allowed them to exceed federal standards/cost models.

I wish, I sadly am not the subject of the email, was posted on Instagram. I'm tempted to ask if it could be recorded, but I highly doubt it.

EE Distinguished Lecture: Lars Blackmore, SpaceX Friday, January 12, 2018 - 3:30pm

Quote
Abstract / Description:
SpaceX's reusable rocket program aims to reduce the cost of space travel by making rockets that can land, refuel and refly, instead of being thrown away after every flight. Autonomous precision landing of a rocket is a unique problem, which has been likened to balancing a rubber broomstick on your hand in a windstorm. Rockets do not have wings (unlike airplanes) and they cannot rely on a high ballistic coefficient to fly in a straight line (unlike missiles). In the past two years, SpaceX has successfully landed nineteen rockets, some of which were on dry land at Cape Canaveral, and some of which were on floating platforms in the ocean. This talk will discuss the challenges involved, how these challenges were overcome, and next steps towards rapid reusability.
Bio:
Lars Blackmore is responsible for Entry, Descent and Landing of SpaceX's Falcon 9 Reusable (F9R) rocket. His team developed the precision landing algorithms and operations required to bring F9R back to the launch site. Previously, Lars was with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where he was co-inventor of the G-FOLD algorithm for precision landing on Mars, and was a member of the control team for the SMAP climate change observatory. Lars was named one of MIT Tech Review's "35 under 35" innovators and has a PhD in Guidance, Navigation and Control from the MIT Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

You want to be inspired by things. You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great. That's what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It's about believing in the future and believing the future will be better than the past. And I can't think of anything more exciting than being out there among the stars.

I will attend this talk today at Stanford and can post notes afterwords. If the opportunity arises, I'll ask one or two questions. Feel free to message me with suggested questions.

Great! Yes please, post here all notes you can capture.
Please ask him about BFS precision landing in unknown weather conditions during Earth to Earth suborbital transport flights. Would it be easy or difficult for EDL team to prepare robust enough flight SW for all possible conditions and scenarios?   
Thanks!

Got it. FYI, We just received an email stating that the talk is only open to Stanford students, faculty, and staff. Also the venue has been changed.

-- text below --
Due to space limitations, this talk is only open to Stanford faculty, students and staff.
 
Please note that the venue has been changed to: 420-040, Jordan Hall Basement (next to the old Thai Café)

Hi - The talk just got out. I'm sorry to disappoint, but they were very strict about no press, no recording, and Lars asked specifically about if anyone had attended from Reddit at the end. The obvious vibe was that this talk wasn't intended to be distributed publicly. I'll say that most of the content drew from his 2016 publication here: https://www.nae.edu/Publications/Bridge/164237/164334.aspx

The Q&A he deliberately avoided discussing any future specific plans, but it was very interesting and impressive nonetheless.

I have about 7-8 pages of notes from the talk. I'll clean them up a bit then post them in L2 soon.

For those of us who aren't L2, does that mean it's not kosher to post our notes?

Subcommittee on Space Hearing - An Update on NASA Commercial Crew Systems Development

Hans Koenigsmann will be witness for SpaceX

N.B.: The term witness makes this sound like a trial...

kinda disappointing watching that.  Id expect our elected representatives and their staff to be a little more educated and a little less reliant on sensational news
Tried to tell you, we did.  Listen, you did not.  Now, screwed we all are.

This is NOT the Space Policy thread so let's not go there please. Thank you.

Yes please. In fact, slagging reps straight out probably isn't on for Space Policy either.

Re: Congressional representatives and collective staff

Do we have any such as members--not asking anyone to name names, of course.

(I know we have one highly-informed and informative FORMER Senatorial staffer in our number here, Jeff Bingham a.k.a. 51D Mascot.)
