We welcomed Howard Bloom back to the program to discuss his new book, "The God Problem: How a Godless Cosmos Creates." Remember, if you buy the book using this Amazon URL, Amazon will make a contribution to The Space Show/OGLF: Howard started the discussion by telling us about the five heresies he points out in his book. That is what we see is not actually correct. A large part of the first segment takes us through the five heresies in detail in the very interesting, informative, & captive way only Howard Bloom can master. Later in the first segment, we talked about the need for O'Neill Colonies, space art, and the caption factor. In the second segment, Howard discussed his Big Bagel Theory of the Universe. ( and also Note that the YouTube video addresses the five heresies talked about in the first segment. Later in this segment, Howard talked about visionary space leadership, SpaceX, Elon Musk, SLS, commercial space, and the initial Obama Space Program. He also mentioned space solar power as a viable option and how to make space happen sooner, not later. He also talked about how important space development was and is to the United States, but that we are not following through on making space a priority. He said that Asia seems to understand this more than we do in the States and is acting on this truism. His new book ties in very nicely to space development, exploration, and expansion here and on a global basis. Please post your comments/questions on The Space Show blog.
