Add this to another station Nick Nielsen, Tuesday, 2-21-17 (10.57MB; download) -- We welcomed Nick Nielsen to the program to discuss the expansion of The Overview Effect to include The Homeworld Effect and The Mars Effect. Nick explained and discussed these perspectives in detail and we expanded them even further to the many different perspectives that we will gain from becoming a spacefaring culture. We talked similar perspectives from the Moon, Venus, asteroids, deep space flight, along with differences between say a government/military astronaut and a commercial or private sector astronaut. This is an interesting, different, and thought provoking discussion that greatly expands The Overview Effect perspective and impact.

Add this to another station Dr. John Brandenburg, Thursday, 2-16-17 (13.44MB; download) -- We welcomed back Dr. John Brandenburg for this 1 hour 58 minute program. The first segment focused on John's theory about Mars, nuclear explosions in its past, and the presence of specific isotopes in the Martian atmosphere supporting his theory. John opened by reading an email a Space Show listener sent him suggesting that time alone would explain the presence of the isotopes he was referencing in his theory. John explained why the listener was wrong and suggested the listener check out his references in his Sept. 2016 AIAA paper as the listener attended that talk. John also talked about him GEM Unification theory, gravity and the role of electro-magnetism (EM). He specifically referenced the EmDrive research being carried out by Eagleworks. In the second segment, he talked a bout his new science fiction book, "To Rule the Night: The UFO Wars- Book II of the Morningstar UFO Theory." He explained the trilogy to us as he has already written but not yet published Book III. John spent some time talking about how he writes science fiction, the inspiration he draws from and as you will hear toward the end of the show, the global history of the planet and humanity that he adds to his stories.
