The Space Show on 88.3 Southern FM Presents President Obama's Space Plan

In 2010 April "Space Show" Producer and Presenter Andrew Rennie travelled to Florida to attend a Conference convened by President Barack Obama and NASA to hear the President set out the new space plan and to consider how his new space policy might be put into effect.

Very few journalists were admitted, and Andrew was the only Australian. A member of the White House Press Corps for a day!

Some aspects of this conference, such as the President's speech, have already been broadcast on "The Space Show." Editing of the entire conference has now been completed, and a series of 13 programmes will begin airing on Wednesday August 17. In addition to eleven programmes from the actual Conference, there will be two precursor programmes. Each episode in the series varies in duration from 20 minutes up to 40 minutes, allowing time for "The Space Show" to continue to bring the latest in space and astronomy news to its listeners.

"The Space Show" airs every Wednesday between 7 and 8 pm Australian Eastern Time (Standard or Daylight depending on the seaon) on 88.3 Southern FM, broadcasting on 88.3 MHz on the FM band to the Melbourne metropolitan area. It can also be heard live streaming worldwide on the Internet at www.southernfm.com.au/
