I personally am most interested in SpaceX, so I am willing to spend a little time to periodically update the list in the top post of this thread.  If someone is willing to do that for a broader range of companies feel free to create a thread in the appropriate section.  We could also just create a thread where people can post notices for such events if no one wants to curate a list for it.

Speaking of others, Virgin Galactic will be talking at the Spaceport America Cup next week. I can record it or post any major highlights from the event.

Where is the list for Orbital, Boeing, Lockheed Martin and others?

You know, I started a thread for one of these events once:
http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=42898.0

It was attended primarily by Boeing, LM, Orbital, etc. Unfortunately, it was not worth it. They work under completely unrealistic premises.

ULA for instance would be much, much, much, ...., much more interesting if they could keep the revenue they make and invest it in R&D, new rockets, reusability, IVF, etc., I come back to that at the end of my post. SpaceX landed and relaunched a first stage of a EELV class rocket within 15 years of its existence. I guess they started with 200M or thereabouts and got one funding round of about 1B. Look what they have done with that investment. Fuck launch price, its not important. What is important is technological development and advancement in rocket technology. In the same time, Boeing, LM, ULA made what? A new launch vehicle, not much different from what we had in the 70s. A bit more effective, but basically nothing in terms of advancement of technology. Taking this past experience, think of what SpaceX might be able to do in the next 15 years. And what ULA might achieve in the next 15 years. ULA might have the Vulcan, which is just an other iteration of the 70s technology, a bit more efficient, a bit cheaper. They might have IVF which is quite a substantial advancement. But thats it. By the same optimism, SpaceX on the other hand might do what Shuttle promised but never delivered: full and rapid reusability. Compare ITS with Orion and tell me whats more interesting.

Not everything is sunny on the SpaceX side for sure. But when looking at Boeing, LM, Orbital, ULA.. its like looking someone developing more efficient means to stand still. I am not surprised that SpaceX gets such an audience and old space doesnt. Imagine what ULA could be now if they were allowed to keep the revenue they made. Imagine, we would probably have IVF by now. Vulcan would probably be redesigned to be fully reusable or would be on a track to achieve it. ULA would be a stunning company to look at, hear talks from their engineers and get excited by the future they want to achieve.

And before you mention it, thats not bashing ULA. Its an observation and an answer to your question: Why does nobody cares about ULA? Basically, it boils down to: Driving technology to new heights or be a cash cow. Pick one.

I find the pair of meetings on June 21 and 22 interesting for the main reason of the topic for the June 21 meeting and that the June 22 appearance is likely to be a SpaceX sided take away about the Senate Hearing and how that will affect SpaceX Exploration and Settlement goals.

So there's these tweets:

Erik Cleven‏ @VoltzCoreAudio  Jul 11: I know some of us sound like a broken record by now, but can we get a real estimate on when the big Mars update will be?

Elon Musk @elonmusk Replying to @VoltzCoreAudio @DJSnM
Maybe the upcoming IAC in Adelaide
2:44 PM - 11 Jul 2017

Adelaide is the capital of the state of South Australia. Also don't forget that Tesla has recently won a contract to build the world's biggest battery storage facility in South Australia, in the next few months before Australian summer starts in December.
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-40527784

A happy confluence of events for Elon Musk.  If I had to bet money on it, I'd say the next ITS announcement will almost certainly be at IAC 2017.  He can come to present, then get an update on the battery plant rollout while he's here.

I was thinking about going to IAC anyway, maybe I can report for NSF the way Helodriver did last year..? :D

The committee hearing was held- https://www.commerce.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/2017/7/reopening-the-american-frontier-promoting-partnerships-between-commercial-space-and-the-u-s-government-to-advance-exploration-and-settlement, but there are no video or transcripts of the session.  Does anyone have links to them?

Additionally, Ars Technica https://arstechnica.com/science/2017/07/spacex-urges-lawmakers-to-commercialize-deep-space-exploration/ put up an article on the hearing discussing Tim Hughes' prepared remarks.

Ars seemed to think that SpaceX was agitating for the establishment by NASA of a Super Heavy Lift equivalent of Commercial Crew program, in recognition of the Falcon Heavy, New Glenn and other commercial space developments of large lifters.

The most SpaceX relevant part of the NGA talk today was about COTS and government contracting. I don't think there is any news here about Elon being against cost-plus and for milestone based contracting.

Another somewhat relevant bit was a discussion of regulations. Elon is for the right amount of regulation (my paraphrase) and thinks regulations should be reviewed a regular intervals to keep them relevant and at the right amount.

Most of the rest of the talk was about Tesla, sustainable energy, and artificial intelligence. Interesting (particularly the AI piece), but not directly relevant to SpaceX.

There was another thread on the NGA talk that's disappeared, I suspect as too far off topic. Anyway here's just the main space bit of Elon's Q&A (only other space bit was brief mention of making life multi-planetary):

Perhaps I'm blind, but isn't this thread in the SpaceX general forum?

actually, I'm kind of with Jim on this.

     It would be nice if we had both a monthly Launch List on the main page as well as a list of upcoming conferences and who would be at them.  (This could also give some of us advance enough notification to arrange to attend these meetings as well).

Perhaps so, but not here. Did you notice the heading? [SpaceX Vehicles and Missions/SpaceX General Section] This thread is located specifically in the SpaceX-only area. Lists of such events for companies other than SpaceX would be off topic.

Gwynne  Shotwell spoke at MIT today, some interesting tweets start at: https://twitter.com/charlottelowey/status/913136268954996736

(Exciting news about S2 'soft' water landing already captured here.)

I was also particularly struck by:

From what I understand, Musk's talk is literally the only thing at IAC 2017 that will be livestreamed.

Pretty subpar for such a large group, but IAC 2017 rationalized it on Twitter by arguing that people wouldn't buy tickets to come if plenaries were streamed. Rather discounts the benefits of networking and technical sessions, if you ask me, but c'est la vie.

Elon Musk is doing a Reddit Q&A this weekend - anybody going to show up for it?

https://www.geekwire.com/2017/elon-musk-will-chat-big-rocket-plans-spacex-fans-reddit/


If others do show up, then would anyone mind asking about SpaceX and the USAF RFP for its new launch vehicle? I'm really interested in knowing whether SpaceX will propose BFR for that.

Also, I wanted to hear further from Musk on Gwynne Shotwell's comments that The Boring Company could help in the establishment of off-world infrastructure on the Moon and Mars.

Can anybody else think of useful questions to ask?

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.
