Broadcast 1056 (Special Edition)

Guest: Ross Tierney was the guest for this in-person taped interview conducted here in Cocoa Beach on Thursday, Nov. 13, 2008. This was a very hard-hitting interview with Ross about Direct 2, its technology, its likelihood of being adopted by NASA as an alternative to Ares 1, and more. I asked Ross why we should have confidence in Direct 2 when it was basically a PowerPoint presentation given that it has not yet undergone any metal bending, any development or testing. I asked why there would not be design problems with it as there are with Ares and the NASA selected hardware.

Broadcast 675 (Special Edition)

Ky Michaelson was the guest for this special Space Show program. We began the discussion with Ky by asking him how he got involved and interested in rockets and then to the point, how he was able to launch the amateur rocket to space which his Civilian Space eXploration TEAM (CSXT) did in 2004. As you will hear from the discussion, fighting the government and regulatory environment proved every bit as challenging as building and flying the rocket but as Ky said, he paved the way for others and it should be easier for others to follow what his CSXT accomplished.
