Dr. Bruce Comments on Space Stories, Interview with Musician Little Panda GPS for Your Body, Magic Leap One Under Fire with commentary by Greg Panos 

Listen Now to Dr Future Show 8.28.2018

We tried a new experiment this week, where we have one of regular guests, Dr. Bruce Damer, comment on many of this week’s stories from a session we held the night before the show in our Future Peak hot tub.  Let us know what you think, as there was lots to comment on, from ghost black holes to frozen troves of water on the moon.

We also chat with and have a musical guest artist, Little Panda,  sing a couple of fresh tunes for us, on her visit to KSCO studios during our show.  And another of our regular guests, Greg Panos, weighs in on the long-awaited Magic Leap One, a highly anticipated entree into the augmented reality arena.  Enjoy!


A Lively Debate on Orbital Space Art with Kit Galloway and Don Davis

Listen Now to Debate on Orbital Space Art

With the advent of cheap space flight we are poised with the opportunity to create amazing art in space that can be seen by millions of people. But will it be good art or schock? And who decides what is seen by millions fo people at the same time?

The latest project along these lines, simply known as “The Orbital Reflector,” is a reflective, inflatable sculpture affixed to a small satellite that, once ejected, will orbit the earth for several weeks before disintegrating upon re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere. The artistic vision of Orbital Reflector, according to their website, “encourages all of us to look up at the night sky with a renewed sense of wonder, to consider our place in the universe, and to reimagine how we live together on this planet.”

Or will this new art just create space junk, a showboating  stunt that could start a precedent  for invasive and uninvited intrusion into the celestial canopy of all the people of the world? To help us evaluate this new kind of art, we speak with Kit Galloway, early high tech artist, and co-founder of the orginal Electronic Cafe, and Don Davis, long time NASA space artist and animator.  We have quite a lively debate which we believe you will enjoy!

Hi folks, we are back from vacation with the latest in Future News and a little report from our adventures. It looks like we’ll soon be bringing back to Earth a sample from an asteroid, that the moon may have enough water to make it practical for colonies there, that there are lots of water worlds in the Milky Way, and we’ll have some amazing new tools for exploring them. Back on Earth, 3D printing tech is helping us save the coral reefs, and magnetic pole reversal happens way faster than we thought! Enjoy..

Have a great Earth summer folks! CU before you know it..


Future News - Raging Global Martian Dust Storm under scrutiny, New Probe Investigating Deep Mysteries of the Sun, Russian Colonist Androids to be trained on Space Station, AI Scientists pledge not to create Killer Robots, Pentagon Creates AI Division overseeing 600 projects, Designer Babies Get Green Light in Britain

Listen Now to Future News 7.25.2018 

Our last show before our Canadian vacation, we take a closer look at how we are probing the mysteries of the raging global Martian dust storm currently underway, and the Sun itself, soon to be under scrutiny of our NASA Parker Probe.  Our NASA scientists will be trying to figure out how a small dust storm becomes global using data collected from the nuclear powered Curiosity rover and our 3 orbiting probes.  And the Parker Probe will be exploring such mysteries as why the Sun’s atmosphere is 300 times hotter than the solar surface.

Lots of AI news this week, with Russian androids heading to the International Space Station, a new pledge from AI scientists not to make killer robots, and a new AI division at the Pentagon for overseeing the 600 plus AI projects currently being funded by the DOD.  And designer babies are a step closer to reality with a green light in Britain to advance reproductive health with three parent children.  Quite exciting, enjoy!
