Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Guest: Dr. Eligar Sadeh. Dr. Eligar Sadeh, of the Air Force Academy's Eisenhower Center for Space and Defense Studies, was the guest for this Space Show program. We started the program by asking Dr. Sadeh to tell us about the upcoming "National Space Forum 2008: Space Challenges Facing The New American Administration Of 2009," which will be held Feb. 7-8, 2008 in Washington DC. This Forum is sponsored by the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) and the Eisenhower Center for Space and Defense Studies. Eligar took us through the forum's agenda and main speakers. As you will hear, the Forum contains a power house of content and speakers and promises to be a worthwhile educational experience. While there is no conference registration fee, it is by invitation only. If this program interests you and you would like an invitation and more information about this forum, please send a request to Dr. Sadeh at firstname.lastname@example.org and reference The Space Show in your subject line. As the program developed, Dr. Sadeh was asked several questions about the space versus flying culture at the US Air Force Academy and we learned that space is not a priority item there, not even with the students. Another listener asked him about the space mission for the Air Force and its future. Here, we learned that their space mission is primarily in defense of the war fighter and defending space assets, government or private, is not the primary mission. This is an important discussion you will want to hear. In fact, as we learned, these are a few of the topics which will be discussed at the upcoming Forum. Dr. Sadeh was exceptionally informative with us regarding these issues and many more , so I rate this as a must-hear program. By the way, we also learned that Air Force cadets not only have the opportunity to attend conferences and Forums like the one discussed on air, but unless military or academic duty precludes it, they are required to attend their football games. For any follow up questions or comments you might have, use Dr. Sadeh's email address, email@example.com. If you want the piece by General Armor referred to in this broadcast, you can request it from Dr. Sadeh or you can send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward it to you.
