Click on Image for The Presidential Briefing Trailer: TO HEAR THE SHOW CLICK ON WHITE PLAY ARROW BELOW LEFT. The US Government — with all its complex network of far-flung federal agencies, spread across the United States and the entire world  — was officially “closed” for the past 35 days … beginning, December 21, 2018, and ending only yesterday, Friday, January 23, 2019. This, of course, included NASA, for all but “essential” mission operations (ISS, key planetary fly-bys — such as Ultima Thule, Bennu) — and activities involving human safety and security. However, during those 35 “dark days,” startling new images — from several NASA (and other nations’) unmanned spacecraft, spread out across the solar system — continued to arrive back on Earth by radio telemetry, of a variety of solar system objects that are clearly, now– Incredibly ancient … and … incredibly artificial! Tonight, on “The Other Side of […]

  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 journey” to the Moon, that […]

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.

  Click on Image for The Presidential Briefing Trailer: Is NASA about to unveil — and on live television — another “artificial world?!” A little over 48 hours from tonight, at 12:33 AM EST January 1, 2019 — just after the Ball drops above Times Square, signaling the Ritual Beginning of another planetary trek around the Sun — NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft will hurtle past an interplanetary ~19.5-mile-wide “speck,” lost in the darkness 4 billion miles from the center of the solar system, a speck called hauntingly by NASA– “Ultima Thule.” Already, in New Horizons’ cameras, this “farthest object ever visited by Man” (according to NASA’s enthusiastic press release) is revealing a remarkable “anomaly” — never seen in any other natural object in the solar system. Ultima Thula does NOT appear to be rotating! Which, of course, is impossible …. Unless– Ultima Thula is NOT “a natural object.” Join us […]
