Guest: Dr. Sherry Bell. Topics: Transhumanism, space settlement, sex in space, Department of Space. Dr. Sherry Bell was our guest today to discuss the new Aerospace Technolgy Working Group (ATWG) book, "Living In Space: Cultural And Social Dynamics, Opportunities, And Challenges In Permanent Space Habitats." Dr. Bell told us about several of the chapters including a forward by Dr. Buzz Aldrin and others which separates commercial space from NASA and calls for the establishment of a cabinet level Department of Space. The subject of transhumanism was brought up and we learned that most authors in the book support this concept. This was the focus of much discussion during today's program. Other topics that came up in our discussion included the possible spreading of a space disease, a dress policy for a space habitat, low cost space access, science fiction, space politics, sex and pregnancy in space, and more. We also mentioned the various authors contributing to this book and its global space perspective. Dr. Bell invited abstracts to be submitted to her for the upcoming “Living In Space” track that she will chair as the ISDC in Orlando, Florida this May, as well as questions or comments relating to the book.
