Space Access ‘07 - Friday evening - Andrew Tubbiolo, Misuzu Onuki, Kevin Sagis

The evening was almost over. Space Access packs a ton of information into just three days. It is now 9:30. The last three talks are all short.

Andrew Tubbiolo reported on some machining he is doing. He got some machinist tooling from WWI and Korean War time periods. He just got a job from the Navy. He is doing this work on his own time, hoping to transition to a full time job.

Misuzu Onuki wondered what kind of clothing people will wear in sub orbital flights. They showed a video of a fashion contest in Japan. They plan to build a catalog and offer to customers.

Kevin Sagis of Paragon Labs is a small company working on launching small payloads. They are a Lunar Landing Challenge entrant. Kevin showed some pictures of their engines. Via Google I found some launches Kevin had back in 2003 and 2004.

We wrapped up about 10:50 PM.

First: Introduction
Overview: the agenda
Previous: Jerry Pournelle on living with bureaucracy
Next: Teachers In Space, Sam Dinkin of SpaceShort and Jeff Greason of XCOR
