Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Dr. Paul Spudis was the guest for this Space Show program. We began the discussion by asking Dr. Spudis about the importance and value for our returning to the Moon and if Congress and others key to getting us back to the Moon really understand all of what we were talking about. Listen in as you will find the discussing quite interesting. In addition to talking about returning to the Moon, we learned quite a bit about lunar geology, including the four theories as to how the Moon was created, lunar climatology and impacts on Earth, how the Moon can help us better steward Earth and much more. We had several listener questions about solar radiation and its impact on the Moon and Earth. We also talked about his new book written with his wife, Anne Spudis, "Moonwake: The Lunar Frontier." The book which is readily available including on Amazon is really for the younger population and is about a family adjusting to life on another planet with all its dangers, excitement, adventures, etc. I've read the book and certainly recommend it for all ages but especially if you have kids that like science fiction and are ready for high quality space adventure. In addition to listening to our discussion with Dr. Spudis, visit his website which is Many of Paul's papers, op-ed pieces and other items of interest are on his site.
