If you visit the ISEC Flickr Photostream, you can now see photos from last month’s Space Elevator Conference. The Collection is divided up into various sets and all pictures are labeled.
The Museum of Flight was a very interesting and enjoyable venue for the Conference. While the rooms weren’t as ‘fancy’ as the Microsoft Conference center was, they were quite nice and the Museum of Flight as a backdrop is nothing short of awesome. As part of being involved in this whole Space Elevator effort, I’ve been fortunate to visit some really cool places, chief among them the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center at the Edwards Air Force Base. But the Museum of Flight ranks right up there – it truly is an amazing collection of flight-related exhibits. And they continue to expand it – a new wing was under construction while we were there and, if we hold our Conference there next year, I very much look forward to visiting it.
We’re way behind on posting photos and we know it – we’ll have more up on this site soon…
