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.

We welcomed back Steve Wolfe to discuss his new book, “The Obligation.”  Visit www.theobligatonbook.com for more information.  During the first segment of our 1 hour 26 minute program, Steve talked with us about his passion for space settlement, how he developed his interest in the field which eventually enabled him to draft the Space Settlement Act which was eventually signed into law by President Reagan.  He told us the core idea for his new book came to him in 2002 with certain insights allowing him both the realization and understanding that part of our DNA was hard wired to moving toward getting us off Earth and establishing space settlement as a reality.  Don’t miss what Steve had to say about this.  Steve then talked about the book and took us through a few of the Endowments (there are eight in total).  Several listeners sent him email questions and Bob Krone in particular asked about his plans for implementing his vision.  Eric emailed in wanting details and information about self-publishing a book, then Steve explained to the listeners certain special offers he was making available to Space Show listeners. Listen carefully for the coupon codes Steve provided as you will need them for ordering the book.  The Kindle version can also be ordered through The Space Show/OGLF Amazon arrangement & Amazon will then make a contribution to us.  Follow the Amazon links & instructions in our archive summaries, on the blog, The Space Show website, and on the OGLF website.  Toward the end of the first segment, we lost Steve’s phone connection twice & you will hear these glitches.  We apologize in advance for these disruptions.

In the second segment, listener Curt emailed in several questions including wanting to know what had influenced Steve in his writing of the book. In addition to Steve mentioning the Overview Effect, he mentioned the works of others and the references in the book for more specific citations.  Curt also asked him how he can convince people regarding space settlement.  Another listener emailed in wanting to know if Steve’s space settlement vision included destination priorities. Steve said that it did not though he did admit to having a personal preference for returning to the Moon.  Ken wanted to know about the importance of space settlement in light of our tight economy, then Bob wanted to know what might happen if we do not accept the Law of Space Abundance.  We had quite a discussion on this issue and related issues, including my short rant regarding the question with my response to i.  As the program was ending, Steve gave us his takeaways for the book  & he offered us a “tease” for his next book.
