Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Rusty Schweickart and Dr. Tom Jones were the guests for this Space Show program to discuss the Chabot Space & Science Center program with the Association of Space Explorers (ASE) to support eliminating the global NEO threat. ASE is working with the United Nations to address this threat and both Rusty and Tom are part of the effort and the Chabot benefit program. During this discussion, both Rusty and Tom went into detail about the NEO threat as well as the characteristics of different kinds of NEOs. They received many questions from listeners regarding the threat, the expenditure, the effort through the United Nations, as well as questions about the role of the American taxpayer in the effort and others around the world. You will want to hear this discussion and if possible, attend the Chabot Space and Science benefit program which is January 13, 2007 in Oakland, California. Many famous guests and astronauts will be at this benefit and the first West Coast showing of Cosmic Collisions, the new immersive full dome planetarium production from the American Museum of Natural History will be shown.
