THE SPACE SHOW
NEWSLETTER and PROGRAM GUIDE
Now heard in over 50 countries!
Special Bulletin - Live coverage begins between 5:30 -5:45AM, Monday, June 21!
Update as of 12 :30 am PDT, July 21, 2004
Please note that this live broadcast is dependent on the use of a cell phone from the Mojave airport launch site. If Mojave is as jammed with visitors as some press articles say and cell phone circuits are overloaded, we may not be able to receive a timely report from our reporter on the scene. Should this happen, our reporter will record his report and upload it to the Space Show when circuits become available. Please bear with us should this happen.
The Space Show is pleased to announce that it will carry live (audio only) the Space Ship One historical launch scheduled for 6:30 AM Pacific Daylight Time (weather permitting) on Monday, June 21, 2004 in Mojave, California. Events unfolding at the Mojave Airport up to and including the launch, plus special interviews and much more, will be reported live to listeners of The Space Show by our special reporter on the scene, well-known space advocate and leader, John Carter McKnight Mr. McKnight is a regularly appearing guest on The Space Show and is also a space analyst and commentator whose work has appeared in Space News, SpaceDaily.com, SpaceRef, Space Times and numerous other industry publications. For three years, he wrote The Spacefaring Web, a biweekly op-ed on space policy. He is currently at work on a novel about a privately-financed Mars mission. As host of The Space Show, I will be moderating this live reporting from John at the Mojave Airport on this most important occasion. After the live broadcast, the report will be archived at www.thespaceshow.com<http://www.thespaceshow.com/> and it will be streamed for ongoing play at http://www.live365.com/stations/dlivingston?site=dlivingston<http://wwwlive365.com/stations/dlivingston?site=dlivingston>.
The live broadcast can be heard on the internet at http://www.live365.com/stations/dlivingston?site=dlivingston<http://wwwlive365.com/stations/dlivingston?site=dlivingston>. In addition, additional streaming sites have been provided Space Show listeners by Jeff Birk at Pioneer Radio in the UK. These additional URLs are: http://usa.rolo.net:8008/listen.pls<http://usa.rolo.net:8008/listen.pls> and http://usa.rolo.net:8000/listen.pls<http://usa.rolo.net:8000/listen.pls>.
The Space Show plans to begin the streaming broadcast of this event between 5:30 - 5:45AM Monday, June 21. The actual take-off of the carrier plane, White Knight, is scheduled for 6:30AM. Space Ship One breaks free of White Knight about an hour later, ignites its rocket engine and then travels to 62 miles (100 kilometers). The entire flight to landing of both Space Ship One and White Knight should take approximately 90 minutes from the initial take-off of White Knight. As our reporter in the field, John Carter McKnight, will be using a cell phone, we will be going back and forth to John during this time as events are unfolding and to allow us to conserve cell phone battery power to take us through the entire launch and landing sequence. Updated information will be posted to this site approximately 11:30PM PDT on Sunday, June 20th. Space Show listeners are welcome to contact drspace at thespaceshow.com<mailto:drspace at thespaceshow.com> with any questions or comments you might have about this special live broadcast of the Space Ship One launch. All efforts will be made to respond to any e-mail questions prior to the Sunday night update per above. In addition, while streaming this live broadcast, The Space Show will continue to accept chat comments, questions and feedback from the listeners at "spaceshowchat" for those with IM and ICQ. Email to either drspace at thespaceshow.com<mailto:drspace at thespaceshow.com> or dmlivings at yahoo.com<mailto:dmlivings at yahoo.com> will also be available during the live broadcast.
Thank you for listening to The Space Show. For those of you unable to make it to Mojave for this historical event, listen in live to the events as they unfold courtesy of The Space Show, Dr. David Livingston, and our special reporter, John Carter McKnight.
We also give John our very special thanks for being our "man on the spot" to report these events to all of us.
Finally, a very special thanks to an exceptional radio and television broadcast engineer, Tom Driggers. Tom has been working with The Space Show for several years to upgrade broadcast and audio capabilities. He has gone the extra mile to bring to The Space Show and me the technology needed to do this remote broadcast, all at the last minute. A special thanks indeed to Tom Driggers (www.broadcastengineerings.com<http://www.broadcastengineerings.com/>).
