The Space Show for TuesdayJuly 1, 2003  features former NASA Astronaut Dr. Philip K. Chapman. During our Space Show discussion, we will be talking about his recent editorial titled, "The Failure of NASA: And A Way Out," as well as space solar powered satellites, space tourism, commerce,  and much more.
 Dr. Chapman was born in Melbourne, Australia, but grew up in Sydney, where his father was a journalist. He learned to fly during National Service with the RAAF, while he was an undergraduate in physics at Sydney University. After graduation, he spent the International Geophysical Year as an auroral physicist with the Australian National Antarctic Research Expedition to Mawson, Antarctica. His research, which required wintering in a remote two-man hut, earned him the British Polar Medal.

After 15 months in Antarctica, Dr. Chapman moved to Boston, where he earned a master?s degree in aeronautics and astronautics and a doctorate in physics from MIT. He was then selected by NASA as one of the second intake of scientist astronauts (and the first foreign-born astronaut). His astronaut training included jet pilot and parachute schools with the USAF, scuba school with the USN, courses in sea, jungle and desert survival, and many classes in geology, the space sciences and spacecraft systems. His duties also included representing NASA in public appearances and lectures and in interviews in print and video media. He was Mission Scientist for Apollo 14, organizing the scientific training of the crew, coordinating lunar experiments and managing the interface between the scientific team and the crew on the Moon. After that mission, he served as Chairman of the Editorial Board for the Apollo 14 Preliminary Science Report.

When it became clear that there would be no spaceflight opportunities until the advent of the shuttle, Dr. Chapman  left NASA to work in industry, where he led many research projects in space science and technology. Principal areas of engineering interest included (1) launch vehicles powered by ground-based lasers and (2) solar power satellites as an inexhaustible source of clean energy for terrestrial consumers. Most recently, he was Chief Scientist of Rotary Rocket Company, developing an innovative, economical manned launch vehicle.  

He  is a former President of the L5 Society (now the National Space Society), and a current member of the Citizens? Advisory Council on National Space Policy. The latter organization has advised several US Presidents about issues related to space; its most consequential position paper was one for President Ronald Reagan in 1982, suggesting that ballistic missile defenses had become a feasible alternative to Mutual Assured Destruction.

In 1989, Dr. Chapman returned to Antarctica, leading a privately funded expedition to investigate mineral resources, while prospecting was still legal.  Listeners can talk to Dr. Chapman or send him e-mail during the program by calling at toll free 1-866-687-7223 or by using dmlivings@xxxxxxxxx or drspace@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.  You can also use AOL IM by using the ScreenName "spaceshowchat."

 This Sunday edition of The Space Show features Professor Glenn Reynolds, a law professor at the University of Tennessee (UT) and co-author of an important book that I frequently used when writing my doctoral dissertation, Outer Space: Problems of Law and Policy.  During our discussion, we will be talking about space policy, ethics, space commerce and tourism, and much more, including his website.
Professor Reynolds is one of the most prolific scholars on the UT faculty. His special interests are law and technology and constitutional law issues, and his work has appeared in a wide variety of publications, including the Columbia Law Review, the Virginia Law Review, the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, the Wisconsin Law Review, the Harvard Journal of Law and Technology, Law and Policy in International Business, Jurimetrics, and the High Technology Law Journal. Professor Reynolds has also written in the New York Times, Washington Post, Washington Times, Los Angeles Times, and Wall Street Journal, as well as other popular publications. He is also a contributing editor to the TechCentralStation.Com website, and writes a regular column for the FoxNews website.
In addition to co-authoring Outer Space: Problems of Law and Policy, he co-authored The Appearance of Impropriety: How the Ethics Wars Have Undermined American Government, Business, and Society. Professor Reynolds has testified before Congressional committees on space law, international trade, and domestic terrorism. He has been executive chairman of the National Space Society and a member of the White House Advisory Panel on Space Policy. A member of the UT faculty since 1989, Professor Reynolds received the Harold C. Warner Outstanding Faculty Scholarship Award in 1991, and the W. Allen Separk Outstanding Faculty Scholarship Award, 1998.   Professor Reynolds has also authored various law review articles, opeds, and other material. His  most recent book is The Appearance of Impropriety: How the Ethics Wars Have Undermined American Government, Business and Society, (The Free Press, 1997) co-authored with Peter W. Morgan. He is also the author of  Environmental Regulation of Nanotechnology: Some Preliminary Observations, from the April, 2001 Environmental Law Reporter
