Professor Madhu Thangavelu was our returning guest today for this Space Show program. We started our discussion with Dr. Thangavelu with a frank look at the need for a space vision, the VSE in particular, and many components of the need for a space vision. We talked about this across borders, different age groups and then we started discussing it among students and younger Americans. Madhu shared his perspective with us regarding both space oriented and non-space students he works with at USC.
