Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Manny Pimenta returned to The Space Show for this program to discuss his newly created and released DVD, Lunar Explorer. Lunar Explorer is the world's first interactive global model of the Moon available for home PCs. It gives you a realistic visual experience of being on the surface of the Moon and having worked with samples of this program at conferences, I can attest to its high quality and simulated reality. Manny discussed how he got the idea to create the experience and the process he went through to create it as a DVD that works on our home computers. During the show he answered technical and user questions about the program. We also discussed the vision to return to the Moon, how to motivate and inspire people to see the importance of returning to the Moon and much more. In response to listener questions, he addressed issues raised by Professor O'Neill, future lunar habitats, future simulation programs including city and facility building on the Moon and of course Mars.
