Tweets from the National Space Symposium: Bolden, Kehler Speak; Space Industry Has Forgotten Past

How did we ever get along without Twitter? And Tweeters like Jeff Foust from, Miles O’Brien from This Week in Space, and NASA’s own Wayne Hale? Their tweets from the Space Foundation’s National Space Symposium in Colorado Springs makes it seem like being there yourself! Here are a few samples from today’s events featuring NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden, Commander of Air Force Space Command Gen. Robert Kehler, and a space investment industry panel. Check Twitter or these guys’ blogs for more of their news and views.

jeff_foust: Bolden: this is a big week for space. More people will be thinking about it than perhaps ever before

jeff_foust: Bolden: the new plan features incremental, measured progress based on heritage and building upon milestones

jeff_foust: Bolden: can’t express just how passionate Obama and I are about education, why it’s an impt part of the plan

jeff_foust: Bolden ends with call to work together to fully realize NASA’s goals. Leaves without taking any questions

jeff_foust: Gen. Kehler: in plans we used to put a big red circle around launch day. Now we put it around the day that capability enters service

jeff_foust: Kehler: we’re using the same strategy for milspace programs as we did in Cold War. Have to realize that 1 strategy doesn’t fit all.

jeff_foust: Next panel as #nss10 features Wall St analysts talking about space industry. Mass exodus from the room

jeff_foust: Good news for the space industry: investors have short memories and have forgotten the disasters of a decade ago

this_week_in_space: At the space syposium in CO – Charlie Bolden trying to sell skeptical/angry crowd on Obama space plan. Tough crowd

wayne_hale: At the NSS, Gen Kahler is giving a great, thoughtful, heartfelt speech that clearly explains goals and issues. We could learn from him.

wayne_hale: Listening to Charlie Bolden at the National Space Symposium. He’s doing his best to make the case.
