Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Bruce Damer, CEO of DigitalSpace, was the guest for this Space Show program. Please visit his website while listening to this program as many of the 3D visuals and graphics we talk about are on the site, www.digitalspace.com. We talked about his work with NASA, the challenges in getting NASA to see value in this work and to begin working with Bruce and his company. We talked about using this media to attract new people to the space movement, especially younger members of society. Bruce talked about being stuck in 19th century technology and moving forward to 21st century technology, not just in space but in other fields as well. Questions were asked him about virtual reality becoming so good it would replace the real event. You will want to hear what he says about this and much more. One very interesting line of discussion that emerged was about how one has to use solid engineering and science to move forward in the virtual and 3D world. You cannot create fantasy and illusion without knowing reality and building on it. This led us to discussions about STEM education in America and Bruce even suggested that if we cannot turn this around, we may not be the nation that leads the way to becoming space-faring. This was an interesting discussion you will not want to miss. Bruce Damer has much to say about both the real space world and the virtual space world so I consider this an important show.
