This Week on The Space Show



For programs scheduled for the week of Sept. 11-17, please refer to the Upcoming Show Menu on our website for details.  This is a week of special suggested program for you given that I was planning on being at the AIAA Space 2017 meeting in Orlando plus touring KSC.  As a result of my cancelled plans due to Irma, I have set up suggested talks for you to see and hear from the recent Starship Congress event held in early August in Monterrey, CA.  The detailed suggestions for the week are listed by normal Space Show day and time on the Upcoming Show Menu.  Please email me if you have any questions at  Please remember all talks and videos are the property of Icarus Interstellar and I have suggested these talks with the permission of Starship Congress event organizers.

Archives and Weekly non-stop streaming on

Archive programming is provided at For those of you who listen to archived programs on Live365, please note that their service has become unreliable and while I am working with them to stabilize the system, at least for the benefit of listeners, there is no assurance that shows will be able to be uploaded and archived at Live365 anytime soon. It really depends on their customer service and problem resolution. I am aware of the problems and working to resolve them, but you can always hear the programs on our website:
