Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Guests: Robert Jacobson, Dr. Paul Eckert, Tom Olson, Bruce Pittman, and Rex Ridenoure were the guests on this Space Show program to discuss the upcoming Space Investment Summit 5 which will take place on Oct. 5, 2008 in Bel Aire (Los Angeles), CA. To find out more about the event and for online registration/hotel, please visit for more details. We discussed the organization of the Summit, the players, the investors that will be present, and the types of companies which will be presenting business plans though the specific companies were not announced on this show. We covered the selection process for the plan presenters, how due diligence is performed, especially for a vehicle company when the vehicle is still on the drawing board, and much more. Also note that as of the time of this program, the full Summit agenda was not on the website, but it should be available later this week. We also learned that India is extremely interested in the value added session that will take place. There is also a technology and commercialization session as well as the business plan presentation session. Furthermore, each session will have a panel of experts that critique the session for those in attendance. For more information, please use the contact link on The Space Investment Summit 5 website above or send your questions or comments to me and I will forward them to the guest of your choice.
