Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Robert Zimmerman returned to the program for this special show to do an in-depth analysis of the new Commercial Space Launch Amendments Act of 2004. Mr. Zimmerman went into great detail as to why he is not supportive of this legislation and why he cautions others in their support of it. Mr. Zimmerman sat in the hot seat for much of the program as caller after caller kept taking him to task regarding his view and understanding of this bill. The conversations were not only lively, but interesting and illuminating, helping The Space Show listener to make up his or her own mind as to this important piece of legislation which will most likely be signed into law by President Bush before the end of this year. Interesting issues were brought up and discussed such as liability, insurance, informed consent for both the company and the passenger, how Congress and/or AST may interpret the legislation and act upon that interpretation and much more. This is a very important piece of pending legislation. To learn more about it, make sure you hear this program.
