Tweet from Eric Berger:  Thank you to @CSIS for livestreaming this excellent lineup of civil space speakers next Thursday.



En Route to the Moon: Creating a More Resilient Civil Space Architecture
Thursday, January 18, 2018 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
CSIS Headquarters

This event will be webcast live from this page.

The Trump Administration has emphasized civil and commercial space as one of its top priorities with the reinstatement of the National Space Council, the signing of Space Policy Directive 1, and the recent National Security Strategy, which prioritized the improvement of our U.S. space architecture resiliency.

The Administration’s renewed focus on civil space requires a broader public discussion on America’s current civil space systems and how best to improve their resilience.

En Route to the Moon will focus on how NASA and others can promptly adapt civil space architectures in pursuit of the Administration’s mission objectives.

About the European Space Agency

The European Space Agency (ESA) provides Europe’s gateway to space.

ESA is an intergovernmental organisation, created in 1975, with the mission to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space delivers benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world.

ESA has 22 Member States: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Slovenia is an Associate Member.

ESA has established formal cooperation with six Member States of the EU. Canada takes part in some ESA programmes under a Cooperation Agreement.

By coordinating the financial and intellectual resources of its members, ESA can undertake programmes and activities far beyond the scope of any single European country. It is working in particular with the EU on implementing the Galileo and Copernicus programmes as well as with Eumetsat for the development of meteorological missions.

ESA develops the launchers, spacecraft and ground facilities needed to keep Europe at the forefront of global space activities.

Today, it develops and launches satellites for Earth observation, navigation, telecommunications and astronomy, sends probes to the far reaches of the Solar System and cooperates in the human exploration of space. ESA also has a strong applications programme developing services in Earth observation, navigation and telecommunications.

This launcher session at the CSIS conference is pretty good (has Virgin Orbit, ULA, and SpaceX representatives).  This is what Jeff Foust is currently tweeting about.

Pretty solid lineup for the FAA's imminent Commercial Space Transportation Conference, Feb 7-8 :) Gestenmaier, Lightfoot, Pace, and Fred Kennedy of DARPA, as well as speakers/panelists from Sierra Nevada, Blue Origin, Vector, Virgin Orbit, SpaceX, Boeing, and a bunch more.

Fingers crossed that it doesn't just end up being a rehashing of things said at CSIS '18.

Just as the 45th Conf ends, Satellite 2018 begins soon after (March 12-15). It's a relatively well known spaceflight conference and a lot of cool speakers will be attending. Gwynne Shotwell and Josh Brost (SpaceX), Tory Bruno (ULA), Matt Desch (Iridium), Tim Farrar (cool comms guy who runs a great blog), Stéphane Israël (Arianespace), Thomas Markusic (Firefly), and so many others.

More broadly there will be folks from Inmarsat, Intelsat, ORBCOMM, Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic/Orbit, Planet, Digital Globe, SES, DFJ, and more. Faster to list who wont be in attendance, tbh.

Schedule overview can be found here (https://satellite18.mapyourshow.com/7_0/sessions/session-grid.cfm?grid-eventsby=Day&grid-eventdate=2018-03-12&grid-groupby=Track&CFID=22531240&CFTOKEN=197e24b68de67197-B8BA7A3F-EDE5-CD67-C0B589E188BDB5A1).

The White House National Space Council, chaired by Vice President Mike Pence, will conduct its second public meeting on February 21, 2018 at Kennedy Space Center, FL.  Details are TBD, but it will follow the same format at the first meeting in October 2017, open to the public, and webcast.  The topic will be regulatory reform.

Ahead of the second meeting of the White House’s National Space Council in Florida next week, a consortium of upstart entrepreneurial companies known as the Commercial Spaceflight Federation, which includes SpaceX, decided to host a reception for members of the council, who just happen to be some of the most powerful players in Washington. Headed by Vice President Pence, the policymaking council is made up of the secretaries of State, Commerce, Treasury, Transportation and Defense and other top government officials.

The annual CASBAA satellite industry forum is today (should be starting now).  Looks like Caleb Henry is there, and PBdeS is moderating a panel so he'll probably have some tweets throughout the day too.
