Michael Paolucci was the guest for this special Space Show program. Michael began the interview by giving us the background to his having created Slooh.com, a commercial, membership telescope viewing program using an observatory in the Canary Islands. As he clearly states, the origins have a philosophical nature to them as Michael got the idea to create this venture after being in New York during 9/11 and losing his best friend. He realized the importance of space and the world without borders regarding the future of humanity. From this concept, he created Slooh which affords people around the world to sign up for and use observatory telescopes to see various celestial bodies and events. During this program and the listener questions, Michael explains how slooh.com works, what you can see and not see, the types of telescopes used, what membership plans exist and what each offers, and he announced a special Space Show rate plan for those that sign up now prior to the introduction of the new software and program in the next week or so. Slooh.com affords viewers the opportunity to see professionally selected celestial bodies and events, or you can choose your own item to observe from a list or if you know the coordinates of what you want to observe, you can control the telescope and see your own unique celestial item. Slooh.com is commercial and you will find Michael's reasoning for making this a commercial project most interesting. Also, he is involved in education outreach around the world as a well as a program to save the Hubble Telescope.
