Guest: Robert Zimmerman was the guest for this program to discuss his new book about the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), "The Universe In A Mirror: The Saga of the Hubble Space Telescope and the Visionaries Who Built It." This is an excellent book, a must read for those of you who want to know more about the HST. Having read the book and after talking to Bob, it's easy to realise that there is still much to learn about HST's history, from CCD cameras to mirrors and NASA contracting. The information in the book about the mirror error and how it got so far through the system is fascinating.

Guests: Dr. Michio Kaku was the guest for this special Space Show program co-hosted by Dr. Bob Krone. We started the discussion by asking Dr. Kaku about his new best-selling book, "Physics of the Impossible." Dr. Kaku explained to us the three classes of impossibilities involving science, technology, and engineering. You will definitely want to hear this discussion since it relates to many potential space developments. As a result of listener questions and questions from co-host Dr.

Monte Davis was the guest for this almost two hour special Space Show program. Mr. Davis had as a focus for this show to discuss the Space Shuttle and lessons learned from it, if any. As such, this program looks at the question of cheap space access, the role of the shuttle, our expectations, RLVs and much more. Monte went into detail about the difficulty of accessing space and why the systems in place now and the programs we are now developing it work against cheap access. He also talked about the role of the private sector, what it can likely do and not do, space tourism, and much more.

Marlowe Cassetti was our special guest for this Space Show program. Mr. Cassetti, with is vast NASA experience on Mercury, Gemini, Skylab, and the Shuttle, shared with us information and stories that are not normally discussed on any program. For example, we learned that there was a serious effort to design, plan, and fly the Gemini spacecraft to the Moon. We learned about a government cover-up in the space program, not about ETs, but about keeping information classified and away from the former Soviet Union. Mr.

Jim McDade returned to The Space Show to provide us with space news updates and interesting perspective on the top space news stories of the day. We began the discussion with an extensive review of the Space Shuttle and how Jim sees the future for the return to flight program. He believes that Shuttle will need to fly for several more years as he thinks it will have to remain in service until a CEV is available or at least within 18 months of being ready for flight.

Art Hingerty was the guest for this Space Show program. We began the discussion talking about the current Space Shuttle foam problems as Mr. Hingerty worked on the Shuttle in Florida during the Shuttle's early history. This discussion took us into exploring plausible alternatives to rockets for getting off Earth. Mr. Hingerty began discussing mag lift from a very realistic point of view.
