Broadcast 915 (Special Edition)

Guest: Steven Milloy, founder of JunkScience.com (www.junkscience.com), was the guest for this program. Steven started out telling us how and why he started JunkScience.com. This is an interesting story about agenda driven and controlled financing of science projects and experiments, so don't miss it. From this topic we went to the topic of aerial spraying, DDT, and real vs. imaginary science behind such government or NGO programs. Again, this is an important discussion.

Current trends in science literacy impact aerospace in general and New Space in particular. In Kansas and in Pennsylvania, fights are ongoing in the courts to define whether theories with a basis in faith can be taught in a science classroom; polls show that less than half of adults understand the issues of scientific method at the root of the controversy.
