Rob,

Congratulations. But shouldn't you be called cS publisher? You do much more than edit the site.

For example, in the NYT Book Review, the blogger Joshua Micah Marshall, reviewing a book, was called the "publisher" of Talking Points Memo.

Thanks, Kris. I suppose I am publisher as well, but its been my experience that the title of "editor" opens more doors than does even "President" or "Founder".

As an aside, I'm happy to say as we approach our sixth birthday, that I no longer hold all titles at cS. Rick Houston is our very capable reviewer/columnist and Ben Cooper is our staff photographer at the Cape. And I'm excited to say that we'll soon to be announcing a new person joining the cS 'staff', someone whom I think many will be familiar and will be eager to welcome...

That said, its members such as yourself that really make collectSPACE what it is today!

Robert,

You said you wouldn't say anything about me until the official announcement. Sheesh. There goes the surprise.


:-) Just kidding.

Hello Robert:

I heard you on the Space Show today and it was interesting as usual. My favorite part was trying to find those flown M&M's

Hope to see you at the Space Memorabilia Show (if they accept my application)

It was a great show, and I thank David Livingston for taking my two questions which I sent in.

I agree with him, I hope you are on there more often!

Thanks to all who listened. It was a fun show and it was great to hear from Ray, Ben, Joe, and others who sent in questions.

To MH: thanks for the laughs tonight.

A special thanks to Dr. David Livingston for having me on his show. The Space Show offers a fascinating, weekly look at all the different aspects of space exploration. I'm a regular listener, and I hope many of you are, too.

Now... who has those flown SS1 M&Ms?

I listened to the live broadcast and Robert gave an excellent interview. Can't think of anyone who would have made our hobby prouder. Great job, Robert!

Robert,

Great job.

I enjoyed your comment about how one can acquire the autograph of the next moonwalker now for free! And, how you described so well what it was like to hold something flown. But, I don't believe I ever heard the answer to the question "what would 5 pounds of Moon rocks be worth?" though...

Noah, I think Robert did give an approximate valuation on 5 pound of moon rocks...... indirectly. The Honduran item was pea sized; how many peas to the pound?......

Good to hear you Robert; looking forward to Autographica already.

Regards,

Rick.

Thanks guys, for tuning in and for the kind words.

Noah, I think the problem I had with appraising five pounds of moon rock was that it was hard to imagine the value of 1 pound - let alone a gram!

That said, I do think there would be a leveling off point, where regardless the weight or size, the price wouldn't flucuate much like it does for gold or diamonds (based on karats). I think that $1-$2 million for a gram is reasonable until such time that a pound or more is offered, after which its likely a situation that $1-2 million would be the value of any moon rock, regardless its size (assuming 1 pound or larger) and that other factors would play more heavily in determining its sale price (e.g. age, location from where it was collected, mission on which it was returned, presence of rare attributes [orange soil], etc.).

'Robert Pearlman, Ex-Beatle' should get you a good table at some fine restaurants.
