Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Jeff Krukin, Executive Director of the Space Frontier Foundation (SFF) was with us today to talk about their important new White Paper. The White Paper, "Unaffordable and Unsustainable? Signs of Failure in NASA's Earth-to-orbit Transportation Strategy," is available for download at This paper puts fourth four recommendations by SFF to change current NASA policy regarding the VSE. Jeff received many listener questions that challenged some of the positions in the paper and you will want to hear Jeff's response as his responses go to the very heart of this paper and its need. Mr. Krukin also referenced the recent GAO report that came out after the White Paper and is also critical of the NASA VSE direction. The GAO report can be downloaded at Jeff Krukin welcomes your feedback, comments, and suggestions. You can contact him at For more information about SFF, visit the website,
