International Space Development Conference History Page

For those of you who have never been to the International Space Development Conference (ISDC), here is an excellent source to view past ISDCs:

The International Space Development Conference


In 1982 the L5 Society unexpectedly started a tradition that will reach its’ 20th anniversary in 2002. I have been very close to this yearly event from its’ inception to its’ current status under the National Space Society as the central yearly event of the space activist movement. I will from time to time add documents and images from past conferences to this page. Don’t expect things to show up instantly unless you personally have lots of interesting material you’d like to see placed here. Also, I will be looking on this as an archive repository, not as a quick look facility. So any page images and photos will be rather large and slow to download.
