Home »  Moon Click on Image for The Presidential Briefing Trailer:   What would the world look like … act like … be like–   If we had never gone to the Moon?   My guest tonight, Joel Banow, and I are going to explore this fascinating question … from the perspective of two old friends who, fifty years ago (!), shared a series of extraordinary “out-of-this-world” adventures, together, at CBS News; Joel, as the CBS Television News Director of Special Events covering Apollo … and I, a young kid “tapped on the shoulder by fate” and Walter Cronkite–   To help CBS, Walter and Joel “go to the Moon” ….   How did Apollo change our world … a world before “the Internet,” before “Google,” before “social media” … and CNN.   A world, we will try to demonstrate, totally transformed by those three brave men launched on an unprecedented “Christmas […]

Click on Image for The Presidential Briefing Trailer: Why — after the spectacular series of American Apollo lunar landings in 1969, 1970 and 1971 — has NASA NEVER returned to the surface of the Moon … in over fifty years?– Either with human crews … or … even with an instrumented robot?   And why, after that intervening half-century, is China the one nation on Earth which has not only soft landed unmanned spacecraft on the lunar surface — now, TWICE — but–   On the forever invisible from Earth “Farside of the Moon?!”   Join me, and my guest tonight — Chinese cultural expert Robert Morningstar — and find out.     Richard C.

Due to Severe Blizzard & Technical Issues with connections … this show is rescheduled for Sunday, January 6, 2019 New Show Page:

Looking back, this week could mark the beginning of the civilian “Second Age of Space.” Last Monday night (September 17), billionaires Elon Musk and Yusaku Maezawa, held a major press conference at Musk’s Space-X facility in Hawthorne, California.  The private space pioneer announced at the conference that, beginning in 2022 or 2023, both men will lead seven other civilian astronauts in a PRIVATE mission to the Moon, aboard Musk’s planned giant rocket — the BFR. In this first civilian human lunar effort, the BFR (which stands for “Big Falcon Rocket”) will NOT land on the lunar surface — according to Musk — but will loop around then Moon at least twice, before returning for a soft rocket landing back on Earth. What will these nine civilian astronauts actually SEE?! That is our show tonight … the REAL Moon … and what is waiting for the first “non-governmental lunar astronauts” in […]

  Tonight’s show — I’m not kidding — is one “straight out of X-Files!” The ISS Space Station … SABOTAGED, in orbit — now, according to the Russians– Multiple times?! A “national solar observatory” perched on a ~10,000-foot, isolated mountain top in southern New Mexico, home to millions of dollars of irreplaceable equipment, instruments and computers, suddenly and mysteriously TOTALLY SHUT DOWN by order of the FBI … and then, totally ABANDONED … to potential looters, thieves and vandals!!? A NASA-released, striking, official image of the Moon — appearing in the last few days even in TIME magazine — which, on close examination, CANNOT in ANY way be “our” own Moon?!! What the HELL is going on!? Tune in tonight , as we try to get to the bottom of these multiple, baffling — and still escalating — mysteries … whose only common theme is that they all involve, in […]
