Space Ventures & the Paranormal

In 1989, Steve and Dawn Hess headed out to the Mojave Desert, anticipating a quiet camping trip. But when they were kidnapped by what they believed to be a swarm of alien beings, the shock and pain of the experience changed their lives forever. Author Ron Felber joined Jimmy Church (email) to update us on the case and to welcome the Hesses for their first live interview. First hour guest, director, actor, and musician Vic Mignogna spoke about his webseries Star Trek Continues.

Space Ventures & the Paranormal

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - March 17, 2007
Host: Art Bell
Guests: Robert Bigelow

Entrepreneur Robert Bigelow, the founder of Bigelow Aerospace, joined Art for the entire program for a discussion about his private space ventures.

Bigelow, whose first spacecraft (Genesis I) was launched on July 12, 2006, spoke about the challenges involved in running a private space program, as well as the complications posed by International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). Bigelow is currently prepping another spacecraft, Genesis II, which will launch from Russia during the week of April 19th aboard a decommissioned SS-18 missile rocket.

Bigelow shared some specs on his company's expandable space modules, which he said are stronger, safer and have three times more interior volume than any module that comprises the International Space Station. Similar technology will be used to construct Sundancer, a human-rated habitat expected to be on-orbit in 2010.

Bigelow also discussed the 1967 Moon Treaty, traveling to Mars, the end of the space shuttle and NASA's COTS program, as well as his interest in paranormal phenomena, including consciousness and the UFO enigma. He promised to share any 'anomalous' footage captured by video cameras aboard his orbiting spacecraft.
