|In the pilot's seat at the Expo; Full Scale mock up of Lynx|
I left the mountain, which the locals call the "rim of the world" into the LA area. Traffic wasn't too bad but I forgot one of the highways and went a bit out of the way, story of my trips these days,and I arrived around Noon in Long Beach, the first day of the Space Expo at the Long Beach Conference and Entertainment center. The booths ranged from companies producing connectors to facilities in formation like The California Space Enterprise Center. The well known players XCorp, the X-Prize, The Planetary Society, SEDS, and Boeing had booths. The Commercial Space Flight Federation sponsored the coffee. There were manufactures, testing labs, test equipment rental companies, sensor manufacturers so very technical skiled people. I would ask them what they had that I would need to get to the moon. I left after 2 1/2 days
with a pile of data sheets and promotional materials.
The best contact came on day 2, I stopped by APV Manufacturing's booth to see what they did. They engineer and manufacture any part out of many material for development (vs production, i.e. 1-15 copies).
I spoke with Bruce Richardson, a Retired Army Col, was intersted in helping with OpenLuna and has become our Marketing Manager. He has a plan. More will come on this soon. I am very excited
that we could get things moving very fast.
