INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING THIS SEARCH TOOL FOR FINDING GUESTS AND THEIR INTERVIEW DATES:

Below is a list of all the guests that have appeared on The Space Show, along with the date their show is archived.  The guests are grouped by years.  This is a listing of guests only; it is not a summary of programs or an index.  Eventually, there will be new Space Show website which will automatically incorporate index-like features, but this tool does not do so.

To use this list, simply do a global search for the guest last name, the date, or any other word/name you want to search for.  This global search would be the same as you do for any Word or .pdf document, using the “Find” feature.  With the information obtained from doing your search, you can easily find the exact archived show on the website by using the website search tool by date at the bottom of each website page.

If you have any questions, please drop me an email at drspace@thespaceshow.com.

Thank you,

Dr. David Livingston
