Re: TA/NASA Space Tourism Workshop study
Sam & Eric,
Speaking of the STA/NASA Space Tourism Workshop study, where is it?
Last I heard Tom Rogers' press conference was postponed for unspecified
reasons. Was it rescheduled? I haven't seen anything in the press
regarding it. Is STA distributing copies of the report? The results of
the "closed" AIAA workshop on space tourism held recently in Baniff,
Canada were supposed to be published as well, but no word has surfaced
after the conference.
Pat and other invitees to the AIAA workshop,
Are you at liberty to discuss what was discussed there? If not, why?
The conference chair, Ivan Bekey never did respond to inquiries about
the workshop. Any idea of why he would want to keep these proceedings

Gratuitous political statement, look here ->

versus finding the pulls that attract people and their money."
