Host Paul Carr is joined by panelists Adam Smith, Nick Nielsen, Patrick Festa, and Buck Field to talk about the human return to the moon. It seems to boil down to: yes,, but who's going to pay for it? Maybe the Chinese? Maybe American or Asian billionaires? Somehow this drifts into discussion of flat Earthers and joke cults.

Released: 1 October 2016

Duration:93 minutes, 39 seconds

 

Host Paul Carr welcomes panelists Chris Prophet, Sam Lichtenstein, and Rober Wehbe to talk about the recent SpaceX announcement of a Mars colonization transportation architecture.  What are the risks, and who will pay for it? Why did they go with an all-chemical approach and no nuclear? Will NASA get on board with Space X?

We apologize for the glitches - these were caused by brief power interruptions in Maryland. Fortunately the team were resilient and we only had to edit a little bit of silence out.

We didn't do our usual recommendations this episode, but they'll be ack in Episode 63 in November.
