Next-Generation Suborbital Researchers Conference

Keith's note: I am at the Next-Generation Suborbital Researchers Conference in Boulder. My plan is to stream several portions of today's event live via USTREAMTV. First, between 8:30 and 10:00 am MST, will be keynotes by Lori Garver, Pete Worden, Alan Stern, and George Nield. Then, at 12:00 pm MST, there will be a press conference with Alan Stern, Pete Worden, Jeff Greason and a representative from Virgin Galactic. The webcast will be available here.
