LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Logan is gearing up for the annual Small Satellite Conference this week.

The co-founder of Apple, astronauts and Air Force officials are among the top space experts scheduled to attend the conference at Utah State University which begins tomorrow and runs through Thursday.

It's the largest yearly conference that comes to the Cache Valley and all of the area's 876 hotel rooms are booked.

About 850 participants from 20 countries are signed up.

Conference organizer Pat Patterson says the conference also provides a unique opportunity for Utah State students. Patterson says many college seniors bring resumes and have onsite interviews with some of the 100 companies that send representatives.

He says several students have gotten job offers at the event in past years
