Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Guest: Walt Anderson. Topics: Augustine Commission, Walt's future plans, legal updates, Mir Space Station and MirCorp. Walt Anderson returned to The Space Show for a series of four fifteen minute telephone interviews from his federal correctional facility in New Jersey. These interviews took place on August 19 and October 2, 2009. During these telephone conversations, Walt updated us on his legal status and the dropping of most of the charges against him by the IRS. Walt received a copy of the Augustine Commission's Executive Summary so we talked about the recommendations and he extrapolated to what such a report might have been like had MirCorp been successful. He also went back through most of his Mir and MirCorp experiences, he summarized some of his commercial space investments that he had made commenting if he would repeat any of the investments today. He also reviewed his legal from start to where it is today. In the final telephone call, Walt talked about his future plans, what he wants to do in the commercial space world, how he intends to do it, and some other ideas he has in mind upon his release.
