Spacefest 2009 update

From February 19 - 22, 2009, I'll be in San Diego attending Spacefest, a fantastic conference featuring scientists, astronauts, artists, and space afficiandos. I've written about it before, so you can get the details there.

Kim Poor, the organizer, just informed me that he has updated his guest list: it now includes Apollo 12 astronaut Dick Gordon, as well as Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood -- the stars of the movie "2001: A Space Odyssey"! That's very cool. Moreover, Apollo 9 astronaut Rusty Schweickart will give a talk about how to prevent asteroid impacts, a topic he is an expert in (as people who have read my book already know).

I had a fantastic time at the last Spacefest (check out my photos on Flickr!), and I'm really looking forward to this one. Plus, San Diego is a happening town, and I always enjoy visiting. I hope to see plenty of BABloggees there!
