   Continued from our first show and leading up to our discussion of NASA, the private sector, Capitol Hill and You, in this second episode we continue with discussion of the Markley article discussing “Starship Earth and the environmental load.  Are we approaching overload now?  What does the Occupy Movement has to do with any of this?  We know that jobs are down, the US tax base is eroded, and that  corporations are overseas in search of investments however their efforts have not been enough.  The U.S. tax structure, can it be the problem?  Do we really have a progressive tax or are the loopholes so large and the regulations so cumbersome that in the end nobody wins.  

   What are the latest Russian plans for the vast riches that await us in space?  What is the Chinese Government saying?  Does the average citizen in the U.S care?  If not, why not? What did Japan’s space craft show us?  Oh, you did not know Japan had space launch capability?  As the Space Shuttle is scrapped in the U.S what has become of the International Space Station?  Is it every Country for itself? 

   There are old laws that apply to space, discoveries and a nation’s ability to profit.  With ailing economies all over the world we look at the how the old agreement may crumble in the next decade.  Our Senior Opinion Panel is forming and they weigh in on these topics and more starting with our 11.3.11 show.   When you think of environment, typically you think about trees, parks, national preserves and the oceans.  Think again.  The environment we live in has become the Universe.  Our shows promise to be both educational and stimulating.   You thought space was all science?  Think again.  We'll bring the excitement of space to our audience.
