March Storm 2008

Space for All reminds us that, according to weather reports derived from data from our POES and GOES satellites, the 2008 ProSpace March Storm on Washington DC is approaching. I'm not sure if ProSpace will be including something like their Space Act of 2007 as part of the agenda they'll encourage Senators and Representatives to adopt, but it would be interesting if they do. Here's a summary of the Act:

This groundbreaking legislation will create THE NATIONAL SPACE PRIZE BOARD (NPSB).

This NPSB's purpose will be to use cash prizes as a means to accelerate the commercial expansion of economic, national security and scientific uses of space and spaceflight. The SPACE Act provides the board with an annual budget of $100 million and the authority to offer prizes up to $400 million.
