Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Robert Zimmerman returned to The Space Show for this program. We began the discussion with Bob giving us his first hand report from the recent Frank Borman comments about Space Ship One being a stunt and the reaction to his comments, both from the audience (they applauded) and on www.spacepolitics.com. We then discussed the Lunar Robot Lander program scheduled as part of our Return to The Moon program for around 2010-2011. This took us into a rather detailed discussion about NASA, the vision, Dr. Griffin, space advocacy positions regarding the vision and the architecture being used to go back to the Moon and more. For sure you will want to hear what Bob has to say about these important subjects. We also talked about the ISS, the fact that the Russians are gearing their space program and their cheap access space vehicle, the Clipper, to supporting ISS and that they intend to use it for their space program and to sell on a commercial basis as they have been doing. Bob talked some about the Clipper vehicle being designed by the Russians and also about the Europeans intent to continue using ISS regardless of what the US does. We also talked about the militarization of space which Mr. Zimmerman downplayed to some degree. Mr. Zimmerman addressed many timely, important, and interesting subjects for this show. You will not want to miss it. If you have questions or comments for Bob, please forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will see to it that he receives them.
