To share the adventure and excitement of the development and flights of the Delta Clipper Experimental (DC-X) and to support and sustain the continuing quest it kindled for safe, routine access to, from and through space for all mankind.
To be a World Center of Excellence for the Past, Present, and Future Personal and Technical History of Reusable Space Vehicles
DC-X SpaceQuest Overview
The DC-X SpaceQuest focus is to collect present, past and future reusable space vehicles experiences and make them available to industry and the public in entertaining, inspiring educational and data rich formats.
Participants in this quest include museums, science centers, new and existing space companies and ventures, space agencies and commercial companies as well as individuals and the general public.
We provide participants with positive brand association with the excitement of space through integrated planning, marketing and operations, and comprehensive, reality based technical content with high standards of quality.
Licensed products created to help support and sustain this quest, will be marketed world-wide at museums, science centers, space shows, conferences and through the internet.
Sponsorships and Donations to the managing International Space Hall of Fame Foundation are tax deductible.

Another tribute to the DC-X
The DC-X Memorial Website site presents a brief look at the DC-X/XA history and a look at an alternate SSTO configuration that was developed by the DC-X engineers as part of their X-33 proposal. It uses the powered vertical landing pioneered by the DC-X to enable a simpler configuration that flies only at a high angle-of-attack. This makes possible a lighter SSTO candidate.

Space Access '13
April 11-13 in Phoenix, is Space Access Society's upcoming annual conference on the technology, business, and politics of radically cheaper space transportation. For twenty years now this event has been an incubator for the "newspace" entrepreneurial end of things. Companies have been started, investments made, ideas spread, and people hired. The three-day conference is intensive and informal, a snapshot of where things are and where they're headed next in this fast-moving new industry. Attendees range from students and amateur rocket enthusiasts through cheap-access political activists and startup rocket companies to government and established aerospace company people.
SA'13 is not only the best Newspace transportation conference around, it's the most affordable. For detailed SA'13 information, see
