Welcome to our first Open Lines show for 2015.  During the first segment of our two hour program, I made a few topic suggestions as usual.  In my suggestions, I asked for listener ideas for both debate and webinar topics plus guests to invite for the suggested programming.  In the second segment listeners sent in many good suggestions but for those of you listening on archives, please send in more.  Sending in guest suggestions for the debate and webinar topics would be very helpful.  The first call was from John in Florida.  He wanted to talk about several topics including the SpaceX effort to land the first stage on the barge.  He also talked about Blue Atlas, Orion, Apollo, the NASA risk averseness and more.  Dr. Lurio called next to tell us where we could see photos of the barge after the crash landing of the first stage.  He also commented on news relating to Blue Origin & the Elon Musk interview on Bloomberg.com.

In the second segment, John called from Ft. Worth, commented on my comments re the email I read about the movie “The Principle” and his thoughts on doing a show with the people behind the movie.  John also asked about the SpaceX refurbishment plans for the first stage once they recover it.  Furthermore, he talked about Elon’s plan for satellites and more.  He asked if SpaceX might be overextending with all the ventures and projects it and Elon are involved in or announcing.  Several listeners sent in debate and webinar topic suggestions including nuclear propulsion, Is Mars The Goal, Mars vs. Europa, National Competition versus International Cooperation, Space Shuttle debates and more.  Pooley called in and we talked about Microlaunchers and other issues.
