3. This Week on The Space Show
FOUR PROGRAMS THIS WEEK! SEE BELOW FOR DETAILS
Tony Milligan: Research Interests:
Applied Ethics, Animal Ethics, Philosophy of Love, Iris Murdoch, Space Ethics, Civil disobedience, and Dogen studies
I work primarily on normative and applied ethics with a special focus upon the relation between the human and the non-human: other creatures, other places, other ways of being.
An interest in the ethical dimensions of human activity in space falls into this territory. In January, McFarland released my short book on this subject, Nobody Owns the Moon (North Carolina: McFarland, 2015), looking at issues such as the off-world extension of property rights as well as the usual, more speculative problems (terraforming, our earthliness, our adaptability). Generally, I'm trying to engage with and help to give a bit more shape to discussions of what we can and ought-not to do on our travels. This is ongoing work so, for example, I'm collaborating on a co-edited volume on space ethics with Jim Schwartz over at Wichita State University and I also recently guest edited a special edition of the journal Space Policy on ethical dimension of space. The book on Civil Disobedience: Protest, Justification and the Law (London & New York: Bloomsbury, 2013) covers protest over animals and the environment as well as the civil disobedience tradition and recent dissent. It advances a central argument that we need a revised and more open account of civil disobedience, one which is not modelled restrictively upon the protests of decades ago but which can help us to understand contemporary dissent. More particularly, we need to understand various forms of protest over the environment (including, arguably, some ecosabotage or 'monkey-wrenching') as civil disobedience. Similarly with prostests over the treatment of animals (particularly animal rescue, including some instances of covert rescue as well as open rescue). Anyone who reads Beyond Animal Rights (London & New York: Continuum, 2010) will recognize that my sympathies are very much with animals. I'm not disputing the idea that animals have rights but I do hold that we need a rich moral vocabulary, one that doesn't reduce everything down to a single concept. (Such as 'rights', consequences' or 'virtue'.) We need lots of moral concepts to do lots of different jobs. Effectively, this is a form of normative pluralism. A further text, Animal Ethics: The Basics (London and New York: Routledge, 2015) will be out during the summer. There seems to be a good deal of interest in how I'm going to handle the final chapters on what has become known as the 'political turn'. Love (Durham: Acumen, 2011) argues that, as humans, we need to see ourselves not just as the bearers of rights, or as rational agents. We need to see ourselves as beings who can be recipients of a defensible love, i.e. as loveable. An appreciation of this is central to our grasp of our own worth. Openness to love turns out to be an important human virtue. So, again, the concern is with the human and the non-human. In the final chapter I return directly to the question of what is at stake in our love for the non-human, for other creatures, for places, and for nature. The other love book, Love and its Objects (Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2014) is a co-edited volume of essay put together with colleagues (Christian Maurer at Friburg and Kamila Pacovska at Pardubice). The volume was tied to a conference held at the University of Pardubice in 2013.

2. Tuesday, March 231 2015: 7-8:30 PM PDT (10-11:30 PM EDT; 9-10:30 PM-1 PM CDT): We welcome back DR. BRUCE DAMER to the program for updates on his work regarding new architecture for sustainable spaceflight and more.
Dr. Bruce Damer lead his team at DigitalSpace for a decade building 3D real time simulations under contract by NASA and several aerospace companies. His career led him into mission design with concept models for lunar ice core drillers, teleoperated lunar base construction and more recently, a space station experimental science bay aerogel collection concept to trap micrometeorites for mineral, volatiles and bio-reactive assays. By far his most extensive project with NASA was his design for a 2007 study for the then administrator Mike Griffin, on how to take constellation hardware, such as the Orion crew capsule, to targets beyond the moon, notably: asteroids, sometimes referred to as near earth objects or NEOs. Bruce worked with a team of civil servants drawn from several NASA centers and created one of the first plausible designs for a human crew to dock their spacecraft to a NEO, carry out surface EVA operations and return to the Earth. Other work Bruce is involved with includes work on origins of life with the Astrobiology community, curating one of the worlds largest historical computer collections in his DigiBarn Computer Museum, and running an artistic and organic farm with his wife Galen Brandt in the mountains of Northern California.
Listeners can talk with Dr. Bruce Damer or the host by using toll free 1 (866) 687-7223, by sending e-mail during the program using firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org.

3. Friday, April 3, 2015: 9:30-11 AM PDT, (12:30-2 PM EDT, 11:30 AM- 1:00 PM CDT): We welcome back JIM KERAVALA to update us on the Shackleton Energy lunar plans.
Jim Keravala is the COO of Shackleton Energy Company (www.shackletonenergy.com). In addition, Jim has been a leader of top-level international teams in the aerospace, finance, and technology sectors for almost 20 years. An expert in space systems and infrastructure, Jim combines a deep knowledge of international business and technology trends with practical expertise in building cross-cultural teams that cut across diverse sectors. In the early 1990s, he was responsible for establishing a commercial space development office in Moscow where he led a team of ten senior Russian engineers and staff members. He helped lead the effort to transform the Russian launch industry from centralized planning to free market economics. In 1998, Jim became Launch Manager at the Surrey Space Centre in England, handling launch operations for commercial and governmental clients worldwide — including NASA, ESA, and the United States Air Force. Jim worked with the Surrey team to assist emerging nations in establishing local space capabilities — including engineering facilities, spacecraft fabrication centers, and national space agencies. In 2004, he left Surrey to lead cross-cultural teams that focused on capital intensive projects in infrastructure finance and development. This executive experience gave Jim a unique perspective on the establishment of large scale programs. Moving to Silicon Valley, Jim successfully raised venture capital for one of his companies creating a 3D information architecture and he is on the board of space and software technology companies that he has cofounded. Jim is also a member of Faculty at Singularity University for Technology Synthesis and Mapping, Chairman of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics San Francisco Section, a member of the Economics, and Investment Committee of the International Astronautical Federation.
