6.11.13- Is there a there, there? In the early 20th Century, research on electromagnetism eventually brought us the consumer electronics, wireless and satellite communications industries. Now, we are reaching another critical time in history. Commercial spaceflight is evolving in parallel with commercialization of the International Space Station (ISS). The ISPCS audience will hear from the leaders of our industry why understanding gravity, and its absence, is an evolving step yet to be taken in the commercialization of space. We will learn where synergy exists and where risk and reward coexist. At ISPCS 2013, Duane Ratliff, Chief Operating Officer for the Center for Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) will address a big question about conducting research in microgravity: "Is there a there, there?" He will discuss management of the ISS U.S. National Lab and examine the risks and rewards of conducting scientific research on this unparalleled platform for innovation.
