Broadcast 981 (Special Edition)

Guest: Robert Zimmerman returned for this Space Show program. In addition to our discussion, we talked about Bob's new book about Hubble, "The Universe in a Mirror," and his terrific older book, "Leaving Earth." We started the interview by discussing a recent Washington Post article in which the author suggested the ISS be used as a spaceship for going someplace interesting rather than just hanging out in LEO. Mr. Zimmerman wrote about this idea years ago in his famous book, "Leaving Earth," so we talked about the feasibility of actually doing something like this with the station.

Broadcast 632 (Special Edition)

Robert Zimmerman returned for this Space Show program. With some sarcastic humor and serious commentary, Bob Zimmerman spent much time during this program connecting the dots to a future successful space program to a resolution of many of the global political and economic threats facing the U.S. and the free world. No doubt many listeners will disagree with Mr. Zimmerman's political assessment of issues facing America and how they might impact space development but Mr. Zimmerman is clearly not the first to express these concerns nor he is the first to do so in the context of space policy.

Broadcast 472 (Special Edition)

Robert Zimmerman returned for this Space Show program. We began the interview with Robert updating us on the latest Falcon I launch plans with SpaceX. We then got into a management issue discussion with SpaceX compared to NASA and other companies. Robert talked about Hubble, mentioned his new book on Hubble, we talked about negative and positive journalism and fear, both with the Iraqi war as well as the space program. Robert updated us on what to watch for re the shuttle returning to flight, the vision program and more.

Broadcast 465 (Special Edition)

Father George Coyne was the special guest for this Space Show program. WE began the interview by finding out astronomy and the Catholic church, why their interest, its origins, and their observatory in Italy as well as in Tucson. I personally found the history and origins to be fascinating, going back to the need to make adjustments in the calendar. You will certainly want to hear this discussion. We then shifted focus and talked about telescopes, not just in Tucson, but worldwide.

Broadcast 309 (Special Edition)

Robert Zimmerman returned for this special Space Show broadcast to discuss with listeners the results of the recent AST Conference held in Washington, DC, the ISS, the NASA budget, Hubble, the situation with replacing the NASA Administrator and more. In updating us on the AST meeting, Bob told us about some of the recommended guidelines including the setting of medical standards for space tourists. This proved to be very controversial, sparking lots of questions and interaction with Bob regarding the direction the AST seems to be going which is toward heavy or significant regulation.
