In the tradition of "Walt Disney
," the Society’s President and SpaceTV! host Michael
Slage guides viewers through each segment.  The segments include

also a member of the Society’s board, reviews of space sites on the
Internet, in-depth looks at the latest news and upcoming events in
the Space world.  One segment, called "Behind the
scenes," looks at places like the Kennedy Space Center. 
Another includes demonstrations of space science concepts for use by
teachers in their classrooms like "How to build a model of the
nucleus of a comet out of common kitchen items."   The
first three episodes of SpaceTV! will focus on the International
Space Station.  The Premiere coincided with the launch of the
Space Shuttle to the station. Technology Focus segments provides an
in-depth look at new technologies being tested and used in the space
program, like nanotechnology, that may one day be used in everyday

According to Slage, "The exploration of space is the next great
revolution in the history of mankind. The role of SpaceTV! is to try
and demonstrate how global forces, public opinion, and technology
interact.  It will show where the future of space exploration
lies." SpaceTV! isn’t just for "space-cadets." The
show is aimed at a broad audience with an interest in space, science,
international cultures, and new technology. SpaceTV! emphasizes
interactive reporting and analysis. The show will explain reasons and
importance of developments in space exploration and focus on what
will happen next.

"Space TV! is attempting to combine the strengths of both
television and the Internet," said Slage.  "Although
live webcams and the broadcasting of events over the Internet have
been around for several years, virtually nobody has attempted to
produce a science television show designed solely for Internet
broadcast.  SpaceTV! will combine video and the ease of Internet
access to enable the public to learn more about space exploration,
cooperation, and technology," he said.

SpaceTV! is produced by The Society for
International Space Cooperation, an International educational
non-profit organization which holds regular events in over 22
countries worldwide. The Society was formed to address the need for
an organization whose sole purpose is to foster cooperation,
education, and exchange among the countries of the world in the areas
related to scientific advancement and the international exploration
of space.  The Society is dedicated to the idea that if there is
to be future exploration of space we must prepare the next generation
through a strong program of international space related education
which will lead to cultural as well as scientific understanding among
all the nations of the world.

SpaceTV! debut coincided with the latest
launch of the Space Shuttle to the International Space Station at SpaceTV! will also be available
