Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

Pablo de Leon joined The Space Show for this program. We began the discussion talking about Pablo's XPRIZE entry from Argentina. He described his entry in detail, his plans, his budget, etc. Listeners wanted to know more about his rocket and hybrid motor experience which Pablo also talked about in detail. We then moved on to space and pressure suits, why use them for suborbital flights, how to make less costly consumer single use models, the profitability of such suits, radiation and space suits, and more. Pablo made it clear that due to the early suborbital tourist flights being experimental, he would absoultely want to see space suits used for crew and passengers. You can find out more about his rocketry, space suits and rocket sims by visiting his websites: and You can e-mail Pablo from these websites with your additional comments and questions. In addition, visit the English and Spanish language site he referenced on the show,
