Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Michael Kelly was the guest for this Space Show program. The main focus of this show was our reusable launch vehicle (RLV) discussion. Mike took us through all aspects of RLV engineering, R&D, economics to show us why and how we could have RLVS very quickly with the real hope of lowering our cost to space. Many listener questions were asked of Mike, including many dealing with the R&D, accounting, and economic issues. Some of the questions and comments followed the lines of needing large rockets for big payloads, but Mike showed how this was not necessarily so given the ability to build and put things together in space. You will want to hear this discussion. We talked about economic drivers for RLVs, including SmallSats. Our discussion also led us to talk about ITAR and its impact on RLV development This is also a discussion you will want to hear. This is a comprehensive RLV discussion and Mike Kelly, as Chairman of the RLV Working Group for COMSTAC, is the best person to lead such a discussion and answer our questions. If you have comments or follow up questions for him, please send them through me at email@example.com.
