I didn't find the 3:30-4:30 sessions to be that interesting to me, so I took a break and headed to my motel to check in I can see the Columbia Space Center from my window, so it is quite convenient! There is also awesomely fast WiFi in the motel, so I took a minute to write this post.
The content has been fairly good. I've seen practical presentations in Pod 1 (complete analysis and plan for a rapid-return mission to Mars; CubeLab hacking), fun topics in a smaller pod led by a 5-year old (Frontiers of the Impossible), and a more open discussion about simulated gravity (its necessity for long duration space ventures, how much is enough, how to make it).
I have high hopes for the more formal T-5 presentations tonight.
So, should I still put up a topic for tomorrow? I'm still thinking about "What can we salvage for re-use from the ISS in 2020?" I'll want a white board... and I'm now thinking about a "How to get a job in the Space Industry (yes, I want one)"
I want to get back for the 5:00pm session, and that's also when dinner arrives! Gotta love a conference that provides meals to its attendees (good meals), and healthy/tasty snacks throughout the day.
