Images from Spacefest V

Spacefest V was held over Memorial Day Weekend this year. For those who don't know, it is the event for the space enthusiast of any stripe - astronomy; manned exploration; robotic exploration; commercial space, space history, etc. One of the big draws of Spacefest are the astronaut autograph signings.

Thanks to Kim Poor of Novaspace and Mark and Tom Usciak for the photos.

Who wouldn't love to have a cocktail with a real hero?
Spacefest VI hasn't been officially announced yet, however I'm really going to try to make it next year. You should too.
