In the first segment of our 93 minute discussion, Anatoly talked about his book which is now in its second printing, "Russia In Space: The Past Explained The Future Explored." Remember, if you purchase the book through TSS/OGLF Amazon portal, Amazon will contribute 5% of the purchase price to TSS/OGLF. Instructions are on all archived and website archives plus www.onegiantleapfoundation.org. Make sure you visit Anatoly's website for even more Russian space news and history, www.russianspaceweb.com. In our first segment, we started with the news that Russia had agreed to stay with the ISS through 2024 and then pursue their own space station. Anatoly said that the future plans were not fixed in stone and could change depending on the ISS and many other circumstances. He said the planned new Russian space station is designed to provide a place for Russian cosmonauts to go to for work, science, etc. If the ISS is ongoing, that may fit the Russian purpose so their new station might be delayed. I asked Anatoly several questions about Russian public space opinion, public interest in space, and I inquired about Russian space advocacy groups. Paula sent in a note asking about the impact of the US sanctions now in place on Russia. Anatoly said they are impacting space, mainly on the science side and he cited a few examples. So far there is less impact on the human spaceflight side. He also said the Russian media and people in general blame the US regarding the sanctions, not their own government for their behavior in the Ukraine, etc. I inquired about their new spaceport, Vostochny. Anatoly had interesting things to say about it, including the logistics, the fact that it was 7-8 time zones from Moscow and how hard and time consuming it would be to get there. He also talked about the large heavy lift Russian rockets which are a transportation problem given they are too large for Russian highway and rail infrastructure. He said they could use the one remaining giant Antonov huge cargo jet but its Urkainian and based in the Ukraine so that presents a current problem for Russia. Joan asked about the Russian nuclear rocket program. We had quite a discussion on this with Anatoly so don't miss it. Also discussed in this segment were space budget issues and the failing Russian economy. Listeners then brought up the Buran shuttle that Russia developed and here Anatoly had much to say. In the second segment, Anatoly was asked if Russia felt it was in competition with other national space agencies.

During the first segment of our 1 hour 40 minute discussion, Both Dr. Dewar and Dr. Jurist talked about the nuclear rocket technology, fuel, cores, past experiences, and how best to modernize the nuclear rocket and move forward with new development. Most of the callers talked technology so this first segment is very technology heavy. Space attorney Michael Listner sent in emails suggesting it would never happen due to the regulatory side of things plus he provided us with the UN Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space policy on using nuclear power in space (www.unoosa.org/oosa/SpaceLaw/nps.html). Listener Kristopher spoke to our guests about core options and fuels. Check out this site that he sent us: http://www.projectrho.com/public_html/rocket/enginelist.php#ntrvapor. Toward the end of the first segment, I said that after the break the second segment would focus on what to do to make the nuclear rocket policy and to start the program and develop this form of advanced propulsion. Both Dr. Dewar and Dr. Jurist agreed. In the second segment, we did focus on the need for leadership and organizational structure for developing the nuclear rocket and starting with nuclear propulsion. We had several callers and emails addressing how to sell a nuclear rocket program. Dr. Dewar talked about the economic benefits, jobs, opening up more of space to economic growth and access. I asked about chokepoints and both our guests suggested the biggest chokepoint was the absence of young, passionate, and competent leadership. Related issues that came included how best to get the support of congress as well as the American people, plus why a nuclear rocket was important and should be developed. Please post your comments/questions on The Space Show blog per the above URL. You can reach either guest through me.

Instructions are in all archived summaries and program blog posts. Visit their website, www.gpsdeclassified.com. During the first segment of our 1 hour 40 minute program, our guests updated us with new GPS developments, new generation GPS satellites, plus information about delays in bringing online new GPS operating systems including the new OCX system. Listeners asked our guests questions about how safe and secure our GPS system is from hackers, cyber attacks and even ASAT devices. Listeners also asked about the Russian GLONASS system as well as the European Galileo system. Marshall called in to talk about Differential GPS. BJohn inquired about GPS improvements so it would work inside and then the subject of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) came up. Listeners wanted to know just how vulnerable GPS might be to an EMP attack. John in Florida inquired about extending GPS throughout the solar system, then as the segment was ending, questions came up about a lunar GPS system. In the second segment, John from Ft. Worth called in to challenge some of the thinking about the risks posed by an EMP. John brought up some interesting points so don't miss this good discussion. Later, as a result of another BJohn question, we learned that not only are the GPS satellites used for navigation, but they have been used for nuclear detection and were why we could enter into treaties under the assumption of "trust but verify." Also in this segment, Mars came up as did a return to the Moon suggestion by our guests. Near the end, I asked about responsive space ideas and GPS. Here we learned that the idea was to have additional GPS satellites already in orbit that could be activated rather than having to quickly launch a replacement satellite. Both our guests provided us with closing comments and "pearls of wisdom." Post your comments/questions on TSS blog above. You can reach Richard or Eric through me or the website.

Add this to another station John Putman, Friday, 2-27-15 (39.74MB; download) -- Guest: John Putman. Topics: Neurofeedback and EEG to improve peak performance in both short & long duration spaceflight. Please direct all comments and questions regarding Space Show programs/guest(s) to the Space Show blog, http://thespaceshow.wordpress.com. Comments and questions should be relevant to the specific Space Show program. Written Transcripts of Space Show programs are a violation of our copyright and are not permitted without prior written consent, even if for your own use.

For those listening to archives using live365.com and rating the programs, please email me as to why you assign a specific rating to the show. This will help me bring better programming to the audience. We welcomed John Putman to the show to discussed neurofeedback in the context of astronaut peak performance training for both long and short duration spaceflight missions. During the first segment of our 1 hour 26 minute program, Mr. Putman explained biofeedback and the specifics of neurofeedback, neuro-diagnostics and electroencephalography (EEG). He also explained the linkage of this research to astronauts for both long and short duration human spaceflight missions. Much of our fist segment provided the groundwork for our discussion, addressing the fight or flight response which is automatic, sensorimotor rhythm (SMR), and more. Our guest explained how the training is conducted and how it works. Also discussed was seizure disorder and space adaptation syndrome (space sickness). Listeners had many questions for our guest including if it was being applied to or made part of suborbital flight training for participants. Beverly wanted to know if astronauts would have time to do this type of training given how their schedules are planned. Microgravity came up and John spoke to the fact that humans were 1g and it was simply not known what type of effects would befall humans in prolonged microgravity, up to ten years or more, even with some artificial gravity for mitigation. As the result of another listener question, John spoke to the fact that the Moon was much closer, only three days away and possibly a good training ground for understanding microgravity, neurofeedback in space and more. Michael Listner called to support Mr. Putman's comments and then he brought up the Mars One project which both John and Michael discussed for a few minutes. As the segment was about to end, a listener asked if the astronauts would be too "macho" to do neurofeedback training. John said it was actually peak performance training & that much had changed today so he did not see attitude as a problem. He even cited training feedback with Edwards AFB test pilots and the need to disengage from your stressful activity. BJohn got in a question about rotation and artificial gravity and Kelly called from Phoenix to inquire about the training and its impact on fluid redistribution related to microgravity. In the second segment, BJohn led off with another question about using the training to overcome sensitivity to bad smells thinking about sulfur on Mars as a possible example. John was also asked about integrating neurofeedback training into missions using newly designed hardware such as the Dragon V2, Orion, CST`100, and Dream Chaser. We talked about technology improvements and the likelihood of soon being able to do some of the training on a small device such as a smartphone.

This will help me bring better programming to the audience. We welcomed back Dr. Eligar Sadeh to update us on changes in the export control regimes for the U.S. During the first segment of our 1 hour 44 minute segment, Dr. Sadeh discussed new changes in export control, mainly for satellites. As Dr. Sadeh explained it, the new regime was moving toward self-policing by the industry with minimum government oversight. During this segment, Eligar explained this, noted the changes from the previous ITAR regime, and we talked about the self-policing nature of the new regime. I took a rather "doubting thomas" view of the self-policing aspects of the new regime, both from a government and industry perspective. Frequent listeners to this program will not be surprised by my view which by the way was rebuked by several callers to the show supporting the self-policing and minimum government oversight methodology as explained by our guest. During this segment, we also inquired about the small satellites, cubesats, and the burden falling on the companies for compliance, even smaller start-up companies. Eligar said many times that the process was in transition but the final rules have been published and now it is up to the companies to follow them. When asked about major transition issues, our guest cited liability shifting to the companies and the self compliance issues plus monitoring. As the segment was ending, Dave called in as one of the rebukes to my skeptical comments to make comparisons to similar changed that happened in the nuclear power industry in 1996. In the second segment, Ft. Worth John (there are so many John's calling the show I feel compelled to identify which John called) to support the new regime and to disagree with my skeptical analysis. John offered some good insights and he made some excellent comments that added to our discussion. Later in this segment, I asked Eligar for his thoughts on public private partnerships, international space partnerships, human spaceflight, robotic missions and more. Christine in Salem sent us an email asking why Congress and those making space policy fail to value space as we in the advocate and enthusiast community value it. Eligar challenged Christine with a comprehensive and very interesting reply. Eligar was then asked if the new export regime was reached in a bi-partisan way. Our guest had much to say about space being bi-partisan. He also spoke about the academic journal Astropolitics as he is the editor of the journal. Tim from Huntsville was our last caller. He inquired about collision and liability issues for small sats colliding with large satellites. If you have questions/comments please post them on TSS blog per the above URL. You can reach Dr. Sadeh through me.

We welcomed both Dr. Bob Krone and Dr. Gordon Arthur to the show for this 72 minute discussion focused on and around The Journal of Space Philosophy (www.bobkrone.com/category/publications-category/journal-space-philosophy). Please note that we experienced significant audio problems with Dr. Arthur's cell phone usage. We apologize in advance for these sound problem which make it very hard to understand some of Dr. Arthur's important comments. Our discussion started with Dr. Krone telling us about The Journal of Space Philosophy and why it was created. The Journal is free and each issue can be downloaded online at the Journal's website URL listed above. I asked if the use of the word Philosophy was limiting in terms of the topics addressed by the Journal. Our guests told us that "philosophy" was being used in a broad meaning - as cosmic intelligence. Bob spoke about the NSS ISDC Conference which has supported the Journal of Space Philosophy and the Age of Discovery with Mr. Bernardino Palma, Portuguese Age of Discovery Historian (See the Journal of Space Philosophy Vol. 1, Number 1). Our guests also spoke about Dr. Dror's Journal article, "The New Ruler: Foundational Leadership for the 21st Century which appeared in Fall 2012 issue of the Journal. Both guests discussed the Law of Space Abundance and used GPS as an example of it. Listeners asked our guests about submitting articles to the Journal and we learned that they are welcome. Listen for the guidelines and submission rules. Later in the segment, Bob was asked about taking online classes through Kepler Space University. Bob told us that as soon as the Florida certification was completed later this year, courses would be available. Marshall called to ask Dr. Arthur about the theological aspects of going to space.

For those listening to archives using live365.com and rating the programs, please email me as to why you assign a specific rating to the show. This will help me bring better programming to the audience. We welcomed Dr. Asif Siddiqi to the show. During the first segment of our 1 hour 53 minute program, Dr. Siddiqi started out with my question about what was going on with space in 1946, the year I was born. He talked about the early days of space programs from the war, the Soviet Union and the US. We soon jumped forward to 1969, NASA, Apollo, the Moon, and how many of us from that era thought we were "entitled" to move forward in space to Mars and more. Our guest had much to say about this space entitlement culture, expectations, and the realities of the time. We talked about making giant leaps forward rather than a step by step evolving process of moving forward. Listeners asked him who got the better deal after WW2 with the German rocket scientists, the Soviet Union or the US? This opened the door to an extensive discussion about Dr. Wernher von Braun. Asif talked about robotic exploration and the excellent work other space nations and agencies were doing in this field. John in Ft. Worth called in talked about the impact of the failures of the Soviet Moon Rocket, the N-1. Our guest and John also talked about the impact of not having competition in the Moon program and how that may have negatively influenced our space program going forward. Dwayne called and we talked about many topics including the recently concluded Pioneering Space National Summit held in Washington, DC this past week to Mars One, the German rocket scientists after WW2, Arthur Rudolph and Karel Bossart of Atlas rocket fame. In our second segment, John in Florida called to talk about the conspiracy theory that says the Germans purposely slowed progress on rockets. This was refuted for other reasons that caused some delays in our program and Russian launching Sputnik before we launched our first satellite. Next, we turned our attention to the Indian space program which is ambitious but Asif suggested that for now it may be exceeding its capabilities. Our guest noted they were starting a human spaceflight program and that India was concerned with China and possibly competing with them in space. The Indian military space program was mentioned as well. Marshall called and talked about Elon and SpaceX. Asif had some important things to say about SpaceX, commercial space and government programs. As we were approaching the end of our program, I asked him what he thought the space history would reflect if written in 2025 for the past decade, the time from now to 2025. Dr. Siddiqi said it was hard to look forward but he thought some form of Orion would be flying, was not sure about SLS given the proposed low flight rate and suggested ARM won't happen.

Visit his websites for me information, http://howtobearocketscientist.com & www.engineeryourinnovation.com. Please note that later in the segment we had to pause the program to restart one of our streaming servers. I apologize for this inconvenience. During our program, Brett, in discussing his book which he said was mainly targeted to high school students but also some middle school students, took us through the ten tips and discussed each of them. The ten tips in the book are 1)Reflect On Your Passions; 2) Expand Your Concept of Rocket Science' 3) Associate with People In The Field; 4) Read A Book On Rocket Science; 5) Watch A Movie About Rocket Science; 6) Make a Short Take-Off (STO) Into The Workplace; 7) Use Free And Informal Education Resources; 8) Know How To Apply For a Job; 9) Find A Mentor; 10) Appreciate And Work On The Soft Skills. Listeners asked him to create a chat room for something like "office hours" with students who might be interested in talking with him. In addition, it was suggested he create a companion workbook for students who wanted to go further than just reading the book. During our discussion of the first few tips, Brett suggested a book on his reading list, "Mindset: The New Psychology of Success" by Carol Dweck. Do It Yourself Space and the Maker Faire movement came up & Brett was supportive of both efforts. Listeners had several questions about some of the specific tips Brett discussed. He was also asked for additional tips not included in the book. As the program was ending, Brett told us about his blog, the success stories on the blog and subscribing to his blog. His blog can be found at http://howtobearocketscientist.com/blog. Please post your comments/questions on TSS blog.
