Add this to another station Dr. Bruce Cordell, Friday, 11-18-16 (12.97MB; download) -- Welcome to our 1 hour 53 minute program with Dr. Bruce Cordell as we take a look at the possibility of a big, monumental Apollo-like space project happening in the new Trump administration. Dr. Cordell spots trends and talks about Maslow Windows of opportunity which summarized for us in this program. He then pointed out the trends in play as a result of the Trump win and things happening in the country and possibly with the economy. We also talked about the possibility that another country could be the lead on a big, monumental space program as it does not always have to be the US though the U.S. is usually the one that does lead and do the project. We also talked about a private effort spurring the project, SpaceX for example going to Mars. Of course the chances for such a project to come about include some sort of government participation so Bruce talked extensively about Public Private Partnerships. Listeners questioned him about such a project being related to space. Why not in medicine or some other field? Bruce explained that for space, people would need to be involved, hence human spaceflight. Another important contributing factor to such a project happening was based on the mood of the country. He thought the trend with the change to a Trump administration signaled the coming of an ebullient society, moving fast and strong toward ebullience. Don't miss all of what he said about the likelihood of a big Apollo style human spaceflight project happening again.
