Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Guest: Veronica Ann Zabala-Aliberto, a senior undergraduate student in the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University, was our guest for today's Space Show program. Our discussion started by having Veronica tell us the origins of her interest in space and how she became so involved and committed as she has and you will learn during this program. In fact, please visit her comprehensive experience website at http://www.linkedin.com/in/veronicaannzabalaaliberto to learn more about her space involvement and experience. We next discussed the LRO and the special LRO Narrow Angle Camera. Veronica explained how students can work on the project team. She even laid out a path for students if their school is not officially involved in a project such as this one that they may want to work on. Other topics discussed included Second Life, a virtual world one can access on their computer. We even discussed teaching university classes in Second Life. Veronica also told us about the Mars Desert Research Station in Southern Utah which is sponsored and managed by the Mars Society (http://www.marssociety.org). Another topic of interest was being politically involved to support and push for continued space exploration. Listen to what Veronica had to say about this and the phone tree and other tools available to those interested in this type of space involvement. Toward the end of the program, Veronica provided us with a glimpse of ISDC 2009 in Orlando, Florida and we talked about some of the programming and work she does for 4Frontiers Corporation.
