Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Constance Adams returned to The Space Show for this special program. The theme of this program was reality check. Ms. Adams is a specialist in designing closed loop systems for space, space stations, future settlements, etc. We went into depth about what is required for a closed loop system, what our state of the art is today, what is needed for the future, what our problems and issues are and how these problems are solved. We also talked about evolving new technologies in the field, the politics of all this, funding issues, and NASA and the VSE. Ms. Adams explained her mother ship idea and toward the end of the show introduced us to "mythical thinking." We talked about redundant and backup systems, the differences between Russian and American systems and designs and much more. We also talked about replicating Skylab for the private sector and private sector efforts to have orbital vehicles and space stations as well as vehicles that could visit another planet. She talked with us about risk and the importance of risk analysis, considerations and prevention in today's world for both the private and the public sector programs. She talked about the Melissa Loop for water reclamation, water as radiation shielding, and the Cradle to Cradle protocol. This is a strong reality check program you will not want to miss. Its informative, highly educational and it is very instructive. You can send your questions or comments to Ms. Adams through me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
