Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Daniel Bateman returned as the guest for this Space Show program. Daniel updated us on what's new with the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center and lots is new. Their displays are new and they have partnered with a museum on the West Coast to display the Spruce Goose and additional space items. Listen to Daniel as he describes this new venture. We talked about education outreach, what works and does not work. The surprising parts of this program had to do with Daniel giving us valuable insights into how the people of Kansas and the Midwest regard space tourism, the flights of those going to the ISS for $20 million and more. We talked about how space contributes to the farm belt and GPS tractors. We had a chat listener from UCLA ask when she could go to space for spring break! She also talked about her experiences in Africa and how space might benefit people in these poor countries. This was a very interesting direction for our guest and today's program, you will not want to miss it. Mr. Bateman explained many of the Cosmosphere's programs for both adults and children. We even talked about a joint Space Show and Cosmosphere program to see the Cosmosphere and then go to a shuttle launch at the Cape.
