Broadcast 919 (Special Edition)

Guest: General James B. Armor, USAF (Ret) was the guest for this program. General Armor discussed his policy recommendation that now is the time to create a special Space Corps within the Air Force. This position is explained in detail in Astropolitics, Volume 5, Issue 3, September 2007, pages 273-288, in his article entitled "It is Time to Create a United States Air Force Space Corps." I highly recommend that you read this article as it's excellent and Gen.

Broadcast 886 (Special Edition)

Guest: Mike Moore. Mike Moore was the guest for this Space Show program to discuss his new book, "Twilight War: The Folly of U.S. Space Dominance." We started our discussion by asking Mr. Moore to give us the premise of his book as well as a working definition for what might constitute a space weapon. This is a very interesting discussion. As you will hear, common sense and logic both play a fundamental role in how one defines a space weapon, since almost anything can qualify as a weapon just like here on Earth.
