   Just days off of high level talks between space industry leaders, NASA and government officials, what are the key issues that you the public need to be aware of as US space policy is redefined?

   Gone are the Cold War Years when the US raced to outpace the Soviets for fear of a weakened national position.  Or are they?  Does Russian talk of a lunar base concern you?  Did you know that our Government is paying Russia to airlift NASA into low earth orbit as we "abandon" that capacity as a Nation?  What is the Chinese Governments' plan?  Did you know that we excluded them from the International Space Station because of their human rights policy?  Now they are building their own.  What does US private industry want?  What does NASA say it wants?  How does all of this effect the average American concerned about jobs, taxes and terrorism?  We begin a three part series with this show.   Oh, we now have an opinion panel that will from time to time give us information they feel we need to have.  The important thing that you know now is that there has been a tremendous amount of activity in space, and it's time you became involved.  Join our show, and keep up with our archives.  Tea Party in Space - who are they?  Who are the other players?
