Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Guest: Douglas Mallette. Topics: space exploration for humanity, space vision, talking to the non-space community. Douglas Mallette was our guest for this show to talk about his new book, "Turning Point: How Space Exploration and Development Will Determine the Rise or Fall of Humanity." This book is available on the One Giant Leap Foundation Amazon partners book page, http://www.amazon.com/dp/0557091233?tag=onegialeafou-20. Remember, if you buy this book through the OGLF link, Amazon donates to The Space Show/OGLF. This program unfolded in two segments, rather than three. During our initial segment, Douglas talked about his recent experience appearing on Fox News for a special program on their internet broadcast. Listen to his telling of his experiences, the internet audience he addressed and more. He also introduced us to his book, "Turning Point." He wrote the book to be able to talk space and space benefits to the non-space community. Since Douglas mentioned SSP in this discussion, he got a tough question from a New Mexico listener which caused a heated and passionate discussion with Douglas, myself, and the question from the listener. You will not want to miss our comments. In the second segment which went through to the end of the show, Douglass discussed the difficulties caused by ITAR, Ares, Constellation, and SRBs. I asked him about public/private partnerships for space development, specifically human spaceflight and the best course of action to take to implement and reach his goals as expressed in his book. We also talked about his doing public speaking to non-space audiences on these topics and I urged him to talk to his Member of Congress as well as Rotary Clubs on these issues, then report back to The Space Show during an Open Lines program as to how such talks went. When asked what his favorite part of the book was, he said it was Chapter 3, "Economics, Employment & Education." Were you to browse the book in your book store, he suggested browsing through Chapter 3 as it was the most important in his opinion.
