Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Dr. Madhu Thangavelu returned as guest for this Space Show program. We began our discussion with Dr. Thangavelu in-depth analysis of the proposal to send people back to the Moon and the ESAS Report. Our guest outline both the good and the bad, the most important and what has been omitted in the RTM discussion. He especially focused on what to do once we get back to the Moon. We also discussed his views on space tourism and you will find his comments on suborbital and orbital tourism to be illuminating and interesting. We discussed the architecture being planned for RTM and much more. In the last segment of the interview, Dr. Thangavelu talked about USC programs in space and space business. There are many opportunities as he pointed out so listeners interested in learning and participating in academic programs will find this portion of the interview to be very important. Listeners are urged to visit the following USC related websites: and for information on a coming USC commercial space forum. You can send your comments or questions to Dr. Thangavelu at
