radio show introducing Space Access '07

The Space Show has a recent interview of Henry Vanderbilt, organizer of the Space Access conferences, that was held shortly before the Space Access '07 conference. This interview gives a good background on the overall "mood" of the industry at the time of the conference. It also gives an idea of what to expect for future Space Access conferences. The interview did not focus on space prizes, but they were brought up incidentally. In one case, a caller asked what they could do as a space activist to help the space access entrepreneurs, given that they aren't working in one of the companies. One possibility Henry suggested is calling their Congresspeople in support of NASA's Centennial Challenges prize program and the COTS program.
