He then told us how he met Dr. Pat Hynes who puts together the annual Personal Spaceflight Symposium in Las Cruces, New Mexico and how this lead to his being a speaker on this topic and the ISPCS (International Symposium For Personal and Commercial Spaceflight). During our discussion, our guest talked about expanding the interest in space within the general population by communicating to them in ways that they can understand, making space personal, by telling a good story, and making it relevant to the individual. He called this domesticating space. He also talked about avoiding the perception that space was owned or controlled by any one private sector company, wealthy individual or even NASA. He said space was for everyone, a type of global commons. He suggested not always talking "geek talk, " or how risky space is or can be but instead talk about the benefits and the dreams and why of being in space and the role space can play for humanity. Our guest was asked about the Mars colonization plan put for by Elon Musk and SpaceX. Here, he talked about being inclusive for the future. Making sure the vision was broad based.

Add this to another station Dr. Moriba J. Jah, Tuesday, 10-18-16 (7.20MB; download) -- We welcomed Dr. Moriba Jah to the program for a 62 minute discussion on the new field of Space Object Behavioral Sciences. Dr. Jah began by telling us space object behavior was all about. As you will hear, this field of study focuses on the movement of both natural and manmade objects in space, how they move, how they deteriorate, and how our culture influences these characteristics, specifically the manmade objects. As an example, he cited that US space objects typically are not designed to have their orbits or communications changed or to have maneuvers on a Friday, the weekend, holidays, and most Mondays. Space hardware from other nations does not typically follow this pattern. Our guest also talked about how space objects behave when their mission has been completed as compared to how they behaved during their mission. This study also includes unintended or unknown space object behavior. Our discussion was very interesting, it was new to me and I am sure it will be new to many of you.
