A couple of space policy events this week

All the cool kids, it seems, are in San Jose this week for the AIAA Space 2006 conference. If you, like me, are not one of them and are spending the week in the DC area instead, there are a couple of potential consolation prizes:

On Wednesday at 6 pm John Logsdon will be speaking on “Outer Space: The Next Frontier for International Affairs?” at George Washington University. An an email announcing the talk describes, “This talk will cover the full range of international activities associated with humanity‚Äôs push into space, from today’s practical issues to the more speculative question of what lies ahead.”

On Thursday Ed Morris, director of the Office of Space Commercialization, will be speaking at a free luncheon at the US Chamber of Commerce organized by the Washington Space Business Roundtable. The topic, though, may not be the most titillating subject matter: “Continuity of Business: Planning to Survive Natural and Man-Made Disasters”.
