Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Guest: Dr. David Livingston hosted an Open Lines Space Show program for this election night special program. The first segment featured my personal thoughts, opinions, and analysis regarding space solar power (SSP). If you want to know what I really think about SSP, listen to what I have to say about it. As this was election night, we talked some with the listeners about the election, about how space might fair with the new administration and Congress, and what U.S. space policy might be like in coming years. Several callers shared their views with us regarding SSP as well as space elevator, NASA, civil space, humans to Mars, NewSpace, and more. One listener sent in an email about the next possible NASA administrator. Toward the end of the program, we discussed space policy, nuclear weapons, and a host of related subjects. These are discussions you will want to hear even if you want to question or challenge the caller or me. If you do have questions for any of the callers, send them to me and I will forward them to the caller you want to receive your input. Please use for all questions and comments for this show. On behalf of all listeners, we sincerely wish President-elect Obama and Vice President-elect Biden a good term in office for all of America. We have our share of problems and we will require skilled, competent, and wise leadership over the coming months and years, not just for space, but for all matters facing our nation.
