This page provides a review of the Space Frontier Foundation's New Space 2006 cconference held in Las Vegas, Nevada during July 19-23. This year they combined their annual SFF meeting with the Return to the Moon conference series (see the 2005 RTTM review).

I provide links to my blog entries from Space Transport News and also to other blogs, news reports, photos, and miscellaneous resources related to the meeting.

There was a press conference and tour at the Bigelow Aerospace manufacturing facility in Las Vegas on the afternoon of July 21st. I've included a report below and some pictures from this event.


Below for each day of the meeting I link to the blog entries at SpaceTransportNews.com that I posted plus I include links to entries at Transterrestrial Musings, where Rand Simberg live-blogged many of the sessions.

Entrance to Bigelow Aerospace manufacturing facility

On the afternoon of July 20th, I participated in a press conference and tour at the Bigelow Aerospace manufacturing facility in Las Vegas. (The business headquarters are also in the Las Vegas area but at a separate location.)
