Welcome to the third part of our Golden Oldie annual review dating back to 2003.  For this program, we go back to December 27, 2005 and welcome Tom Olson, CEO of the Colony Fund for his 1 hour 19 minute 2005 end of the year update on The Space Show. We began the interview with getting an update from Tom on changes being made in the planning and development of the Colony Fund. As Tom likes to say, a wall was hit this year with alt.space which forced new strategic thinking on the Colony Fund management team. Current thinking has the Colony Fund expanding beyond only space investments to include technology, specifically nanotechnology opportunities along side commercial space opportunities. Marketing Colony Fund is also important and Mr. Olson share some of his preliminary plans to use his own broker dealer system rather than conventional middlemen. Don’t miss this update to Colony Fund which when it becomes available will be a unique investment fund offering commercial space and other specialized investment opportunities. Also, take this opportunity to provide Tom Olson with your comments on his planning with Colony Fund. In addition to discussing Colony Fund, Tom spoke about the New York Space Enterprise Symposium he is setting up with others for later in 2006. He spoke about space advocacy, how best to get involved, Congress and the President and more. He then looked back over 2005 for customary year end summary of the space year and then gazed forward for what 2006 holds for advancing space. This year, we divided the look forward into several categories to include alt.space, NASA, the VSE, Congress, the President, and even the general public. Tom pointed out reference points on what we should be looking for from each of these key components. He also talked about the importance of getting Zero G, Zero Tax put into law. for more information on Colony Fund, visit www.colonyfund.com.

This program is the first in our Golden Oldie series looking as space development, commercial and private space, NewSpace and more over the past decade.  This archived Space Show program dates from Dec. 30, 2003 and features Tom Olson summarizing 2003 and looking forward to 2004.  Here is the summary I used for this program when it first aired Dec. 30, 2003.  We welcome Tom Olson, co-founder of The Colony Fund.  Tom returns to The Space Show for this 1 hour 16 minute discussion to update us on progress with The Colony Fund and to take a look at 2003 and 2004 from the commercial space perspective. Tom discussed the importance of the X-Prize, RLV and the suborbital industry, the regulatory issues which he believes will see great improvement for 2004. We talked about the aftermath of the Columbia accident and what any possible NASA reorganization might be like and what it means for space commerce and the private sector. Tom went out on the edge making several predictions for 2004, including a prediction about the current NASA Administrator! Mr. Olson also talked about returning to the Moon, going on to Mars, a new vision for space that is rumored to being prepared by President Bush and what such a potential vision will do for private enterprise. In this show, Tom Olson provided a superb conclusion to 2003 for The Space Show.
