We welcomed our three guests, Dr. Bob Krone, Dr. Sherry Bell & Dr. Robert Frantz to this special webinar Space Show two hour program to discuss the Kepler Space University, the development of the Kepler Space Institute (KSI) and the upcoming KSI Convention to be held at Hilton Head, SC. from March 14-16, 2012. Please note that this program is archived as both a traditional Space Show audio only program and as a webinar video on The Space Show Vimeo Channel per the above URL. Both formats will be available simultaneously. Our discussion started with Dr. Krone providing us with the history for the Kepler Space Institute and University, followed by a Power Point presentation by Dr. Frantz sharing with us the KSI facilities and programming development plans. Our focus then turned to the upcoming KSI Convention. For more information, please visit the following Kepler websites: www.keplerspaceinstitute.info for convention information and registration and www.keplerspaceuniversity.com for Kepler University and general Kepler information. Our three guests shared the microphone to tell us about the topics, programming, and cutting edge focus not only for the convention, but for Kepler. In addition, during the first hour of our program we talked about art and culture issues related directly to space science, exploration and development. We also talked about the innovative concept of real-time data and information gathering and how it will be used at the KSI Convention. In the second hour of our webinar, we talked about the cutting edge research by Dr. Joel Isaacson regarding Recursive Distinctioning. Dr. Isaacson wrote Ch. 24 in the book "Beyond Earth: The Future of Humans In Space. " This chapter is available for reading/downloading on The Space Show Blog entry for this program per the above URL. As you will hear, the convention has a sharp focus on Kids in Space and developing programs to encourage younger students to get interested in the STEM programs along with space related fields of study/interest. The convention will have segments on space law and the quality of laws based on the respective work of frequent Space Show guests, Declan O'Donnell and Dr. David Schrunk. Space Solar Power has the attention of the convention along with other research, historical, cultural, and space themed topics. Please post your comments/questions on The Space Show blog URL above. If you want to get in touch with either of our three guests, you can do so through me or through the KSI website.
