Mars Society, Humans to Mars & more with Dr. Robert Zubrin as guest.

Dr. Robert Zubrin is a noted author and the Founder of The Mars Society. The Mars Society, an international organization dedicated to furthering the exploration and settlement of Mars by both public and private means. Dr. Zubrin is also President of Pioneer Astronautics, an aerospace R&D company located in Lakewood, Colorado. Dr. Zubrin was formerly a Staff Engineer at Lockheed Martin Astronautics in Denver, he holds a Masters degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics and a Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Washington. Zubrin is the inventor of several unique concepts for space propulsion and exploration, the author of over 100 published technical and non-technical papers in the field, and was a member of Lockheed Martin’s “scenario development team” charged with developing broad new strategies for space exploration. In that capacity, he was responsible for developing the “Mars Direct” mission plan, a strategy which by using Martian resources, allows a human Mars exploration program to be conducted at a cost 1/8th that previously estimated by NASA. Zubrin is known internationally as one of the most creative engineers working in the aerospace industry today, and he and his work have been subject of much favorable press coverage in The Economist, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, the London Times, The Washington Post, Fortune Magazine, Newsweek, Air and Space Smithsonian, Popular Science, Omni, Space News, and many other publications. He is the holder of two US Patents, and has two more pending. In addition to his technical publications, Dr. Zubrin is the author of “The Case for Mars: How We Shall Settle the Red Planet and Why We Must,” published by Simon and Schuster’s Free Press Division in Oct. 1996, and “Entering Space: Creating a Spacefaring Civilization,” published by Tarcher Putnam in Aug. 1999, and “Mars on Earth” published by Tarcher Penguin in Sept. 2003. His book, “The Holy Land,” is a science fiction satire of the current situation in the Middle East. Dr. Zubrin has also written a play about Benedict Arnold. His latest book, “How To Live On Mars: A Trusty Guidebook To Surviving And Thriving On The Red Planet,” is a must read.

New Space Mecca with Mark Williamson.

Mark Williamson is an independent Space Technology Consultant and technical author based in the UK. He is a graduate in physics and astrophysics, a Chartered Physicist, Chartered Engineer, and Fellow of the British Interplanetary Society (BIS). He is also a professional lecturer in space technology, and an External Examiner for Salford University in the UK. Mark has more than 25 years’ experience in satellite communications engineering, technical management and space consultancy, and currently spends most of his time advising the space industry and the space insurance community. He has also developed a subsidiary career as a writer, predominantly on space topics, and has written more than 350 articles on space technology, and several dozen papers on subjects as diverse as space law, space education and space history. He has also served as the editor of three international space industry magazines. Mark is the author of five books, including: ‘The Cambridge Dictionary of Space Technology’; a student text ‘The Communications Satellite’; and a history book ‘Spacecraft Technology: The Early Years’. But he is here today mainly to talk about his latest book, which concerns our development of the space environment: ‘Space: The Fragile Frontier’. To quote the author: “Space: The Fragile Frontier is the first book to draw together the recognized issues of Earth orbital debris and planetary protection, set them in the context of space law and ethical policies, and encourage a balance between desirable expansion into space and protection of the space environment. It calls for a sustainable approach to space exploration and development.”
