Guest: Martin Schwab was the guest for this Space Show program which discussed space development and usage from a political science perspective. Topics included planetary defense, space in Hawaii, finding and cataloging NEOs and the statistical probability of one hitting the Earth. We discussed the NEO impact scenario from a policy and political science perspective, that is, public funding for something that has a low statistical chance of taking place anytime soon. This was an interesting discussion that you will want to hear.
