Astronauts for Hire at the 2013 Next-generation Suborbital Researchers Conference

Broomfield, Colorado – Astronauts for Hire (A4H) is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the 2013 Next-generation Suborbital Researchers Conference (NSRC) to be held at the Omni Interlocken Resort in Broomfield, Colorado from June 3-5, 2013. The annual NSRC event brings together researchers from government, industry, and academia in the largest forum of its kind focused on the research and education capabilities of next-generation suborbital vehicles.

"I am very happy that A4H is a sponsor of NSRC for the third year in a row," said A4H President and CEO Brian Shiro. "Our organization grew out of the need for trained research payload specialists that was conveyed at the first NSRC in 2010, so it is fitting that we give back to the suborbital research community that has given so much to us."

Several members and partners of A4H will attend the conference and present on a range of topics, including the following:
