Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Ian Brewster, author of "The Simple Universe," was the guest on this edition of The Space Show. "The Simple Universe" is an excellent book in breaking down complex physics, cosmological, and astrophysics concepts and theories to a level easily understood by us all. We started the interview by asking Ian how he was able to do this, taking the complex and making it so simple. From there, Ian started discussing subjects covered by the book and responding to listener questions. We covered many subjects including quantum physics, how we know the age of the Earth in lieu of those believing the earth is only 6,000 years old, alternative rocket technology and the laws of physics, gravity, Einstein, and much more. We also had three copies of his book to give away in our trivia contest and since only one copy was won on the show, we have two copies that can still be won by those listening on archives who are first to email me with the correct answer to either the name of the first person that was a paying passenger on a space trip and the name of the planet in our solar system with the largest moon and the name of that moon. As there are only two copies to give away, if you know the answer to either of these questions and want to win a copy of "The Simple Universe," email me right away at firstname.lastname@example.org, putting in the subject line "Ian Brewster book contest." Also, Ian has offered to autograph your copy of the book if you want to send it to him and then he will send it back. You can e-mail Ian about this or anything discussed on the show or in his book at email@example.com. For sure Ian Brewster will return to The Space Show.
