This was a truly incredible event, attended by approximately 230 titans of the space industry. Gwynne Shotwell, President and COO of SpaceX shared some incredible news and images including the refiring of the first stage of the last Falcon launch, with one unreleased image of the vertical stage firing just feet above the ocean before impact!

Got to meet and speak with Virgin Galactic President Steve Isakowitz, discuss Dream Chaser with folks from Sierra Nevada, including astronaut Lee Archambault, Director of Flight Ops and test pilot, talk to Wayne Hale, Flight Director for 40 shuttle missions, meet astronauts Sandy Magnus and Michael Lopez-Alegria, so many amazing people I can't describe it all and there were so many incredible panels... in short, a fantastic and intimate event.

I encourage anyone interested in the personal and commercial space industry to attend next year!

Yes Robert, I believe it is, Shotwell said it hadn't been released yet.

Thanks — SpaceX had posted it the day before the conference, but it wasn't clear if it was the same one shared in New Mexico.
