  • More than 9,000 people – the largest number ever – participated
  • The agenda included representation for all space sectors and included industry, civil and military leaders, New Generation participants and the largest-ever contingent of international speakers
  • The new Cyber 1.0 event, which explored the impact cyberspace on military operations, civilian life, national security, commerce and communications, featured presentations by senior Air Force Space Command and industry leaders, interactive displays, a policy-focused luncheon and networking opportunities.
  • The SES WORLD SKIES, USG Exhibit Center filled two massive halls
  • Cyber 1.0, the New Generation Space Leaders program events and the SES WORLD SKIES, USG Exhibit Center all sold out before the Symposium began

Registration is already open for the 27th National Space Symposium, April 11-14, 2011, at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs. See details here.
