Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Dr. Bruno Stanek in Switzerland was the guest for this Space Show program. During this interview, we covered many important subjects including the way it was during the Apollo period of our space program to what is happening now with our space program. Dr. Stanek talked about media and press, a hate America point of view and why he thinks it exists, and why there is the spread of bogus science beliefs including how we never went to the Moon and later in the show, even some of the global warming arguments. Dr. Stanek was asked why he studied mathematics as a path to being involved in space and we learned that when he was in school in Switzerland, that was the only option he had. Dr. Stanek explained why space is so important to us all and why returning to the Moon is important. Too bad he is not here in the States talking to Congress and carrying the torch for NASA! Dr. Stanek has also published both the Space Encyclopedia and Planet Encyclopedia, plus various space DVDs. These are in German but you can find out more about that at his website, also, in German, at In our discussion with Dr. Stanek, we learned that the developing suborbital space tourism market is followed in Switzerland, and that space development is seen as important but like everywhere, due to educational problems and other aspects of the modern society, more of the "show me" or "prove it to me" actions are required. Our discussion with Bruno as he answers questions and shares with us his background, experiences, knowledge and perspectives, was far reaching and important. We see our space program and plans through different perspectives. We see our entrepreneurial efforts differently. I urge all of you to listen to this show, its mind expanding, its important, and it drives home again and again the importance and value of space for everyone, not just those of us here in the United States that follow it and consider ourselves to be space advocates.
