RTM VI "Reality Check" is shaping up to be one of the defining events in the public and private development of near earth space. Not only will the entrepreneurial space community be on hand to discuss advancements in the development of space, but NASA officials at the highest level will be unveiling the new direction that the agency will be taking under new NASA administrator Mike Griffin as it moves towards a triumphant Return to the Moon. The time for fantastical ideas is coming to a close. The time for tangible results has arrived. Though only in its infancy, the commercial human spaceflight industry is real. Normal, every day people will soon be making their way into space aboard privately financed spaceships. Some have suggested that the Moon represents an equally exciting opportunity for eventual commercial development. At the same time, NASA has a mandate to return to the Moon under the new Vision for Space Exploration (VSE). This mandate also includes a partnership with the private sector. Recognizing the critical nature of this discussion to the country's future, the Space Frontier Foundation presents Return to the Moon VI, "Reality Check." This conference will be the point where the entrepreneurial space development community and NASA's exploration agenda intersect. All discussions will be focused on what we are doing and what we can do in space within the next decade; leaving longer, idealized concepts behind, hence the, "Reality Check." Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the people in NASA, the private sector, and the space advocacy community who are actually making things happen. Topics to be discussed will include Earth to Orbit as well as in-space transportation, lunar habitation and infrastructure development and operations, perspective business models and opportunities related to lunar development, legal, policy, and regulatory issues, the key role of international players in enabling the development of the Moon, critical enabling technologies for lunar development, and an analysis of past attempts to spur space development and exploration that have proven unsuccessful.

Robert A. Heinlein's classic, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, is a must read for all Lunar enthusiasts.
