Henry Scott-Irvine is in discussion with Will Whitehorn who tells the story of 'Space Flight'. Whitehorn places it's 'value' into an historical and contemporary context, providing a unique insight into the successes of space endeavour, as well as outlining where the British government and Nasa both went wrong. Whitehorn also provides a vision into the future of space by detailing the actual planned beginnings of commercial space flight in 2011, as well as outlining the scientific benefits that it will bring to us all. This radio programme is both controversial and illuminating.
