John Batchelor and I welcomed back Dr. Jeff Foust for a 1 segment 10minute discussion on a probable Biden space policy, what to do with the aging ISS, a possible ISS extension beyond 2024 to 2028-30 period, private space stations such as the one proposed by Axiom.  Also mentioned were ongoing  maintenance problems for the ISS as exampled by the cracks in the Russian Zvezda module.  Other topics briefly mentioned included the Space Force, possible delays with Artemis, and a question about continuing the ban of talking space with China known as the Wolf Amendment.
