John then switched the topic to a discussion about the Republican presidential candidates likely space policy. For this discussion, we referred to a Jan. 3, 2012 Space Review article on the subject by Dr. Jeff Foust. You can read his article at www.thespacereview.com/article/1999/1. Mr. Batchelor focused his discussion on Romney, Gingrich, Ron Paul and commercial space ongoing projects. If you want to send a note to Mr. Batchelor, send it to me and I will forward it for you.
