My two hour appearance on the Space Show with David Livingston is now available as a podcast and can be downloaded here.

I spent the first half hour outlining the general conclusions drawn by me in writing my policy paper, Exploring Space in the 21st Century, for the Washington think tank, the Center for New American Security. I then spent most of the rest of the show discussing and debating my conclusions with various callers. If you want to get a taste of what that policy paper will say, you should definitely listen to this podcast.

    Enjoyed and was educated listening to this Space Show podcast on your policy paper. Seems well grounded in historical evidence and common sense. Well done Bob.

    I’m curious what, if any, early political pushback you are hearing from the pork minded legislators who ultimately control the purse strings and who’s agenda you are shining a light on.

  • Frank: No serious pushback, but the policy paper has not yet been published. I expect things to change when it is released and distributed throughout Washington by the think tank. Things should thus get entertaining come September.
