                      Space Access '03 Conference
               April 24-26, 2003, in Scottsdale Arizona

Book your flights and rooms now - it's just one week till Space Access 
Society's eleventh annual conference on the business, politics, and 
technology of radically cheaper access to space, Space Access '03, 
Thursday evening April 24th through Saturday night April 26th, 2003, 
at the Old Town Hotel & Conference Center in Scottsdale, Arizona. 

Our conference will once again be a cross-section of who's who in the 
emerging low-cost launch industry, presenting an informal snapshot of 
where things are this spring of 2003.  Be there or miss out - part of 
our relaxed atmosphere and up-to-the-second inside information is that 
we don't ask for formal papers and we don't do proceedings.
