Listen Now to Future News 8.20.2019

We are back from 3 weeks in Canada visiting friends and family, hope you are enjoying your summer as well! Lots of news this week, some good, some not so good, like our report on an experimental solar roadway in France..A promising idea, but…let’s just say there is nothing like a real world test of roads to see how well they hold up to the elements and human/machine use. This week we ask Alexa for helping to determine warranties on space ships, we look deeper into Elon’s Mars nuking project, NASA’s new probe to Europa, New Mexico’s new spaceport, and Netflix’s 50th anniversary documentary of the Woodstock Aquarian Exposition.  Enjoy!

Listen Now to Future News 2.26.2019

Some fun space news this week, as we have the first passenger to fly on Virgin Galactic. True, Beth Moses works for the company but still, she wasn’t a pilot or co-pilot, but as astronaut instructor, will be the guide for the first paying passengers about what to expect on their first flight out of the Earth’s atmosphere. We have Dr. Bruce Damer tell us what’s happening with Hayabusa2, the Japanese flight to an asteroid, and it’s efforts to capture some dust and bring it back to Earth for study.  Dr. Bruce tells us why this is exciting and important.

And we finish the show with San Lorenzo Valley Middle School science teacher Rachel Hager hosting a group of SLV students at our KSCO studios, where we discuss with them their efforts to test the San Lorenzo River for potential toxins and pollution.  Our young citizen scientists give us a great report and we look forward to sharing it with you! Enjoy.

Future News - 2019 Supermoon, Virgin Galactic Tests Latest Spaceship, Israeli Moon Lander about to Launch, Visiting the Venetian Atmosphere,AI's Write Fake News and Generate Believable Fake Faces, Bobby Wilder on the Bacterial Connection to Alzheimers 

Listen Now to Future News 2.19.2019

This show is unique in that Mrs. Future is leading with stories and Dr. Future is responding with comments and queries, kind of the opposite of how the show usually plays.  Why? Because Dr. Future has a touch of laryngitis, and simply has to cut down on the verbiage to preserve his fragile voice.   

Lots of cool Future News this week, including the first Israeli Lunar Lander, AI creating amazing fakes, and Bobby Wilder on the latest in Alzheimer’s research.  Enjoy!
