Guest: Dr. Michael Brooks, author of "13 Things That Don't Make Sense: The Most Baffling Scientific Mysteries Of Our Time," was the guest for this Space Show program. We started our discussion with Dr. Brooks regarding the things he talks about in his book, focusing in on dark matter, the placebo effect, the WOW signal, cold fusion, Pioneer 1 & 2, Viking, homeopathy, and free will. Listeners asked many questions about these issues and we explored each of them in some detail.

Guest: Robert Zimmerman returned for this Space Show program. In addition to our discussion, we talked about Bob's new book about Hubble, "The Universe in a Mirror," and his terrific older book, "Leaving Earth." We started the interview by discussing a recent Washington Post article in which the author suggested the ISS be used as a spaceship for going someplace interesting rather than just hanging out in LEO. Mr. Zimmerman wrote about this idea years ago in his famous book, "Leaving Earth," so we talked about the feasibility of actually doing something like this with the station.
