Next Service Logistics

Regular Service Saturday March 10, 3pm ... new regular time (Brandon)
Rotation: Brandon, Jerry?, Shelley, Ben

Space Elevator Conference

Brandon talked about one way to motivate people in my talk. Ben would provide an overview of motivations for going to space and provide an introduction of where SolSeed is at on that spectrum. Would include the Lifeboat Foundation and the asteroid mining enthusiasts as other exemplars from other parts of the spectrum. Would also talk about the Millennial Project (just to point out that SolSeed is not the only one with this particular motivation).
