The Sound Of The Space Policy Debate: Space Show Guests Speak Out
From the Augustine Commission Report in the fall of 2009 through the recent signing into law of the NASA Authorization Act of 2010, The Space Show radio program has aired more than 100 hours of space policy discussion and debate representing all sides and stakeholders involved in U.S. civil space policy.
These specific Space Show guests have come from academia, the aerospace industry, NASA, space advocacy groups, NewSpace, and many other disciplines.
Some speak with great passion, some lack civility, some engage in extreme rhetoric, and some are calm and articulate, but the one thing they all have in common is that they all seem to know the absolute best space policy for our nation. They each have the answer! During this presentation, Dr. David Livingston, host of The Space Show, will play some of the comments and statements made by these guests during Space Show interviews addressing human space flight policy issues. Hear what the "experts" say is needed for NASA, commercial space, and NewSpace to be all that they can be and then some.
