Commercial Space Conference Underway Despite Blizzard

Keith's note: The 13th Annual FAA Commercial Space Transportation Conference is underway despite the closure of the federal government. Kudos to FAA and the AIAA! Live tweeting of FAA AST conference is going on at #astconf and #FAAcstc.

Keith's update: Charlie Bolden was originally scheduled to speak. Lori Garver will speak instead - but will be speaking at noon (not 8:00 am EST). I am not certain if NASA TV will carry Garver's speech.

"A Healthy Future" Commercial Space Forum Speech by J. Randolph Babbitt, FAA

"Commercial space is page one above-the-fold and the President's budgetary plans are going to keep it there. You'll hear more from Administrator Bolden tomorrow, but commercial space just got a huge boost budget-wise. On another front, just yesterday there were 150 people gathered right here to learn about the FAA's center of excellence in commercial space transportation. Separately, those events are the kind of signals you look for in any business. Put them together, and you've got all the makings of a grand slam. Personally, I don't think it's going to stop there."
