Bruce Damer, CEO of DigitalSpace, was the guest for this Space Show program. Please visit his website while listening to this program as many of the 3D visuals and graphics we talk about are on the site, www.digitalspace.com. We talked about his work with NASA, the challenges in getting NASA to see value in this work and to begin working with Bruce and his company. We talked about using this media to attract new people to the space movement, especially younger members of society.
