We started out talking about TSS Annual Fundraising Campaign, my telling some fundraising and Space Show audience stories which I very much appreciated plus I asked for support for this year’s campaign to make us strong for 2020. We had several calleers on different topics from experimenting with people being put in suspended animation and attempt to apply the medical experiments to space travel. There was also a call expressing concern about all of the Elon Musk businesses and how that might impact SpaceX. The final call addressed Mach Principle research, the Woodward work on the same subject and rebooting a civilization should it be destroyed. In addition to the calls we had several emails on different topics.
