We welcomed both Dr. Bob Krone and Dr. Gordon Arthur to the show for this 72 minute discussion focused on and around The Journal of Space Philosophy (www.bobkrone.com/category/publications-category/journal-space-philosophy).  Please note that we experienced significant audio problems with Dr. Arthur’s cell phone usage.  We apologize in advance for these sound problem which make it very hard to understand some of Dr. Arthur’s important comments.  Our discussion started with Dr. Krone telling us about The Journal of Space Philosophy and why it was created.  The Journal is free and each issue can be downloaded online at the Journal’s website URL listed above.  I asked if the use of the word Philosophy was limiting in terms of the topics addressed by the Journal.  Our guests told us that “philosophy” was being used in a broad meaning – as cosmic intelligence.  Bob spoke about the NSS ISDC Conference which has supported the Journal of Space Philosophy and the Age of Discovery with Mr. Bernardino Palma, Portuguese Age of Discovery Historian (See the Journal of Space Philosophy Vol. 1, Number 1). Our guests also spoke about Dr. Dror’s Journal article, “The New Ruler: Foundational Leadership for the 21st Century which appeared in Fall 2012 issue of the Journal.  Both guests discussed the Law of Space Abundance and used GPS as an example of it.  Listeners asked our guests about submitting articles to the Journal and we learned that they are welcome. Listen for the guidelines and submission rules.  Later in the segment, Bob was asked about taking online classes through Kepler Space University.  Bob told us that as soon as the Florida certification was completed later this year, courses would be available.  Marshall called to ask Dr. Arthur about the theological aspects of going to space.  Both guests provided us with closing comments and Bob gave out his email address for Journal articles and Letters to the Editor submissions.

Guest:  Dr. Martin Schwab.  Topics: Kepler Space Institute Online Courses designed & taught by Dr. Schwab.  Please direct all comments and questions regarding Space Show programs/guest(s) to the Space Show blog, https://thespaceshow.wordpress.com. Comments and questions should be relevant to the specific Space Show program. Written Transcripts of Space Show programs are a violation of our copyright and are not permitted without prior written consent, even if for your own use. We do not permit the commercial use of Space Show programs or any part thereof, nor do we permit editing, YouTube clips, or clips placed on other private channels & websites. Space Show programs can be quoted, but the quote must be cited or referenced using the proper citation format. Contact The Space Show for further information. We welcomed Dr. Martin Schwab back to the program to discuss three classes he has designed, helped to design, and is teaching at Kepler Space Institute Online.  Follow along at these websites for more information:  www.keplerspaceuniversity.com, www.keplerspaceinstitute.org =http://3x3globaldrills.com, and http://moodle.com. Please note that due to an error on my part, I cut off my microphone for the last 3.5 minutes of the program. All of the guest comments plus those of caller Tim are available on the recording but I edited out my comments about trying to resolve the problem. You will hear some rough edits as my comments talked over the caller and guest. I did leave in my closing comments though my audio is terrible, but I wanted to properly close the show.  I apologize for my error but again, nothing said by the guest or the caller was lost or impacted in any way by my error.  Also note that on the blog, I will upload the Celestial Leadership Syllabus. Look for it at the end of the program summary, only on the blog. This summary will not reflect the two segments of the program as our discussion overlapped both segments with common threads and themes.  We started with Dr. Schwab providing us with a short overview of Kepler Space University, Kepler Space Institute, and online teaching.  After the introduction and hands on approach to showing us how to navigate the Kepler websites, enroll in courses, find available courses, Dr. Schwab talked about his class, “Celestial Leadership: Advancing Humans Beyond Low Earth Orbit.”  Martin took us through the course sessions, explained his teaching technique, the essays required for each session, and the course certificate awarded upon completion.  Next, Martin talked about the high school/advance placement class, “Critical Thinking: Alternative Energies-Traditional Economics.”  This class is a combined effort with Dr. Frantz and Martin and as such is taught differently than the Celestial Learning class. While the differences are not great, do note them in our discussion.  In continuing our discussion after the break, we turned to the third class Martin shared with us, “History of Global Governance: Ancient to Modern.” Martin described this course, talked about the U.N. space treaties and other UN space work which is covered during the class.  Martin read the class description to us, we talked about the theory of following the student as in the Montessori method, and he said the class was Inquiry Based.  A listener wanted to know how to design and teach a Kepler course. During our discussion, Martin talked frequently about using Moodle to help in designing and handling the course. In the last few minutes of the program, Tim called to address educational issues from his perspective saying too many people go to college and that the more student loan money made available, the more likely universities will continue raising their fees and costs to consume the additional money in the system.  Martin had much to say on this and his ideas on education as well, don’t miss them.
