Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson was the guest for this special edition Space Show program. Dr. Tyson began the program with a short discussion about the high cost of space access and how that might impact his arena with space-based telescopes. Listen to his reply, you might be surprised by what he has to say. We then jumped to the first chapter of his new book, "Death By Black Hole." This first chapter, Coming To Our Senses, talks about the reality of science and more. It seemed an appropriate way to lead off talking about science and related subjects with Dr. Tyson on The Space Show. We covered many science subjects from NEO impact, planetarium software showing NEO orbits and what it means, commercial space drivers, prioritizing science projects for public funding, and much more. Dr. Tyson had to cut his visit with us short due to scheduling issues but while with us we not only explored the above topics, but we talked about some of the issues raised in his new book such as black holes, what happens if we get too close, telescopes and light speed viewing and even SETI. Don't miss this program! We will certainly have Dr. Tyson back with us a for a full program in the near future.
