So there's not a lot happening right now in the Canadian space systems industry.
Even Canadian Space Agency (CSA) president Steve MacLean is out of the country as part of a larger Harper government initiative attempting (successfully, if the recent press releases from MacDonald Dettwiler and the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada are to be believed) to generate co-operative trade agreements between other nations.
But otherwise, its pretty quiet.
In acknowledgement of this situation, the Commercial Space blog is going to take the day off. We'll return next week with all new stories on the budget, news from the CSCA conference and with a report on British attempts to define their space industry (and what Canadians can learn from that).
