Mike Snead was the guest for this special Space Show program live from Grand Forks, ND as I am here teaching at UND Space Studies this week. Our topic was establishing space infrastructure and there is nobody more capable of discussing this topic than Mike Snead. As you will hear during this show, creating and putting into place space infrastructure is essential to becoming space faring. Mike received many listener questions about infrastructure ranging from costs, deployment, public versus private responsibility, technology, etc.
