Last Show Recap

Flex Fuel & Space Missions

In the first half, George Noory welcomed author, family physician, and speaker, Dr. Rick Sheff, who discussed his spiritual journey and quest. As an atheist and scientist, he had a series of spiritual experiences that didn't fit into his web of belief, and these experiences eventually shattered his previous way of looking at the world.

In the latter half, modern-day spiritual messenger Neale Donald Walsch addressed his latest work tracing the origins of the concept of God.

Flex Fuel & Space Missions

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - May 2, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: Robert Zubrin

President of Pioneer Astronautics, Robert Zubrin spoke about his plan to achieve American energy independence by mandating that all new cars be "Flex Fuel" compliant by 2009. Flex fuel vehicles can run on either gasoline or fuels such as methanol and ethanol. Such a plan would be a boon to the US economy, creating a huge market for farmers to grow crops such as corn and sugar (used to make ethanol) as well as decreasing America's reliance on foreign oil, he put forth.

While Senator Harkin has introduced flex fuel legislation, Zubrin believes its planned implementation is too slow, and that concerned citizens should write their Representatives and Senators to push for quicker action. For more on this topic, see hisarticle published by The American Enterprise.

Zubrin also discussed NASA's space program and expressed concern that Mars exploration is still years off and that the next administration might not follow through on the Bush Mars/Moon Initiative. Expanding human civilization into space, by beginning with settlements on Mars, is truly a worthy goal, he argued. Additionally, he commented that if NASA bails on the Hubble repair mission it would be a disgrace.
