SV Gets All Spacy This Weekend

Silicon Valley will be hosting not one but two — you heard that right, TWO — space events this weekend that are overlapping with each other.

The Space Frontier Foundation kicks off its annual NewSpace Conference on Thursday at the Double Tree San Jose. If you like commercial space and lots of panel discussions, this is the conference for you. It’s got plenty of both. And remember, the most important part is not necessarily all the gabbing in the room but the space deals being done in the hallways.

On Friday evening, Startup Weekend: Space gets underway, also at the Double Tree. The event, which features pitches for space-related businesses, moves to the Plug & Play Center in Sunnyvale for Saturday and Sunday.

The startup weekend is being sponsored by the Space Frontier Foundation. There is a 50 percent discount on the NewSpace conference for those who sign up for both events.
