Guest: Tom Olson. Topics: ISDC 2009, Space Investment Summit 6 (SIS 6), Space Solar Power, problem solving, NewSpace economics. Tom Olson was the guest today to summarize both the ISDC 2009 Conference and the SIS 6. We started our discussion by focusing on the last day of ISDC with the space solar panel discussions. Despite some poking fun and jabbing at what we called the Church of Space Solar Power, Tom summarized the sessions on both Saturday and Sunday with a focus on the need to close the business case for SSP.

Dr. Harvey Willenberg returned to The Space Show for this special program focusing on space for energy uses, HE3, fusion, nuclear power, fossil fuels, space solar power and more. Dr. Willenberg does a superb job discussing these topics from the perspectives of science (physics) breakeven analysis, engineering breakeven analysis, and the economic breakeven analysis, then blending them all together for a sane energy program. We had questions on fusion, HE3, alternative energy, energy from space, the politics of space energy and much more.
