Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Al Globus was the guest for this Space Show program. Al's special interest is space settlement and this program was largely devoted to stating the case for space settlement, how it can be done, why it should and in fact must be done, and how to make the case for space settlement with the general public and political leaders. We also talked about space resources, solar power, nanotechnology and its application in getting cheaper launch costs, space tourism including both suborbital and orbital, the U.S. leading the way to space settlement, what it would mean for political and military struggles here on Earth, and much more. Mr. Globus also explained why he was betting on Virgin Galactic to be the winner in the suborbital spaceship field of entries. Al Globus has two websites which are pertinent to this discussion. Visit http://alglobus.net and also http://space.alglobus.net. Listeners can also send questions and comments to Mr. Globus at AlGlobus@pacbell.net. Other topics discussed included in the best space location for implementing a space settlement and why Mars is not that place. Al also talked about why going to Mars is the wrong vision and why in his opinion the present SEV will be unsuccessful. This is a most interesting program you will not want to miss.
