Dennis Wingo is the author of the recently published book, "Moonrush: Improving Life on Earth with the Moon's Resources." He was a founder of Orbital Recovery Corporation and CEO/President of Skycorp, Inc. He is a 22-year veteran of the computer, academic, and space communities and was an integral force in the use of commercial systems for use in space and flew the first MacIntosh on the Space Shuttle as experiment controller. Orbital Recovery Corporation is developing a way to extend the life of satellites by up to ten years or more and SkyCorp Inc. has developed a patented approach to the development of highly capable spacecraft manufactured on orbit on the Space Shuttle or International Space Station. SkyCorp has also qualified payloads for flight to the station via the Russian Soyuz vehicle, one of which was used in the filming of a commercial last year for the American retailer Radio Shack. Mr. Wingo received his degree in Engineering Physics at the University of Alabama in Huntsville where he won honors for his academic publications and for his unique approach to small satellite development.

Guest: Dennis Wingo. Topics: Private space capital, visionaries, and private spaceflight. We welcomed Dennis Wingo back to The Space Show. Rather than describe this program by its three segments, I want to talk about the overriding theme of the show which focused on the need to have space visionaries and to attract and invest private capital in private space ventures. In having this conversation, Dennis also talked about the risks for companies in taking public money.

Broadcast 947 (Special Edition)

Guest: Dennis Wingo was the guest for this Space Show program. We started out discussing energy which, as Dennis stated, is a very complex problem. This led to our discussion of the Moon as a microcosm of the Earth's macrocosm environment. Dennis also described the process for lunar construction for solar power hardware and then getting it to Geo from the Moon. As you will hear, listeners asked him if it would be humans on the Moon doing the hardware construction or robotics. You will want to hear what Dennis has to say about this.

This Golden Oldie Space Show programs features Leonard David from October 2001 and Dennis Wingo from November 2001. When you hear what they said back then, go back in time with them as they were both on just after 9/11. Do a comparison with then and now. How have things changed, where has the progress been, where are we stagnating based on these two interviews. Your feedback is always welcome. Remember, these older programs were one hour shows on the old Phoenix station and each show had commercial breaks at 15 minute intervals.
