Guest: Brian Hanley was our guest for this off-topic Space Show program, which addressed the issue of terrorism. We began the discussion by asking Mr. Hanley for a working definition of terrorism why it was defined as asymmetrical warfare and violence for political ends against non-government targets. We talked extensively about Russia, what is in its national interest with regards to supporting or not supporting terrorism. In fact, we discussed actions the U.S. has taken and takes in its own national interest that sometimes run afoul of our stated anti-terrorism policy.

Welsch's thesis at the US Air Force War College at Maxwell AFB, AL. As soon as her thesis is published, she will let me know and I will announce it on the show. During this program, we discussed some of the Colonel's findings and conclusions regarding intent, the scope of the Chinese ASAT program, plus many other factors.

Jane Reifert and Derek Webber were the two special guests for this program to discuss the "The Adventurers' Survey" regarding space tourism sponsored by Spaceport Associates and Incredible Adventures. We began the interview with the basics behind this space tourism survey, how it differed from the study Derek did for Futron several years ago and the significance of many of the findings in this survey. Listeners should listen to this program for the full details and scope of the survey, the conclusions and the relevant suggestions for tourists as well as space plane manufacturers.

Broadcast 632 (Special Edition)

Robert Zimmerman returned for this Space Show program. With some sarcastic humor and serious commentary, Bob Zimmerman spent much time during this program connecting the dots to a future successful space program to a resolution of many of the global political and economic threats facing the U.S. and the free world. No doubt many listeners will disagree with Mr. Zimmerman's political assessment of issues facing America and how they might impact space development but Mr. Zimmerman is clearly not the first to express these concerns nor he is the first to do so in the context of space policy.
