    ..You know what..I was feeling the love. I thought the presentations were varied covering a range of ideas going beyond just launches into space, and "beep technology",--delving into a bit more of the science and the relevance of space to earth. I thought that it was very motivating to see how people were progressing their own projects..and that space is definitely the place to be. PS. If I didn't get round to say hi to everyone. hi !

    I hope to be able to make it. I'll be at Harwell during the day, so I'm commute dependant.

    I know it's aimed at SMEs or startups but I'd have my son (11) with me would that be OK?
