For those that missed it, the IICA2005 Conference turned out to be quite an event.
Numbers were fewer than expected, but those who did attend thoroughly enjoyed it with Craig Rispin's talk being especially well-attended and jam-packed with information abouth the future trends in business and industry.
Story Mugrave gave two slide-shows from his time in space - one at the dinner on the Tuesday night, and another on Thursday on his work on the Hubble telescope. I spent quite a bit of time over the three days of the Conference talking to him about his experiences in NASA and was amazed at the things he was able to achieve during his 30 years there.
Of particular interest to me was his take on systems differences between Apollo and the Space Shuttle (being one of only two people alive to fly on both) and his description of the Shuttle as a "butterfly strapped to a bullet".
The Exhibition was first-class with Siemens, Yokogawa, ABB and Krohne having the largest displays and all speaking very highly of the event and looking forward to the next one in 2007.
