We welcomed back to the show Dr. Doug Haynes for updates with his Haynes Saucer, Blue Ridge Nebula Starline, Blue Nebula company and his work to fly to Mars offering airline like service. During the first segment of our 1 hour 16 minute program, Doug went over the history of his aviation and space business development. He talked about Phase 1 in the 70s, Phase 2 in the 90s, and Phase 3 which is his current phase. He said his Haynes Saucer was certified by the FAA and the number was 7111NH. He also talked about his previous work with DARPA and composites. In response to a listener email, he said he currently had an experimental certification but would transfer to a regular certification soon. Jack asked him about visiting his facilities. Doug suggested attending his Open House programs which he holds a few times a year. He also talked about the potential of private visits to his Colorado facilities. I asked him about the size of his operations and how many people he employed. Doug listed the positions and team spots & said he was still growing. Terry asked him about his saucer propulsion. Doug said it had three different aspects to it but in general it was ion propulsion with constant 1 g acceleration using gravitics. He said his hover craft used tip drive. Later, I asked how he generated electricity for his saucer. Don't miss his response to this question. Shelly asked him about human medical factors such as microgravity, radiation, etc. He said he does not worry much about them due to his very fast transit times with his advanced gravitic propulsion. Again, don't miss his full response to this question. As for vehicle size, it is roughly 9 passengers or less with a crew size of 2, all in his ejection pod which you can see in the pictures on the website as a huge glass like bubble on the top of the saucer. In the second segment, he was asked about his pilots having space flight experience. He said this was not necessary given they are running an airline plus his very fast propulsion. Don't miss all of what he had to say on this. Clark in Chicago emailed in about the need for heavy lift re payloads & useful payloads to Mars. Read the rest of the summary @ www.thespaceshow.com.

John Batchelor and I welcomed back Dr. Ashwin Vasavada to discuss NASAs recent announcement about flowing liquid water on Mars. We also talked about other locations for water on Mars including ice which could be converted to rocket fuel were there sufficient energy available for such a conversion by those on Mars wanting the fuel. Dr. Vasavada explained the liquid flowing water and answered questions about the Martian atmosphere. We also talked about Curiosity and its examination of the early Martian climate history through its work in Gale Crater. We talked about the possibility of finding signs of life. With respect to this question, our guest said that the odds for finding signs of life are improving all the time. They odds "keep going up."

This will help me bring better programming to the audience. We welcomed Don Nelson back to the show for this 90 minute discussion regarding his Commercial Space Shuttle Freighter (CSS Freighter) concept. During the first segment, Don provided us with an overview of our current launch and human spaceflight situation, he talked about safety and reliability, then he started describing his CSS Freighter Concept. You can learn more about it at his website, www.spacetran21.org. He spent time explaining why wings were needed despite the common misconception that they become worthless mass in space. He said over and over again that if one does the trades, wings come out far better than carrying additional propellant for a vertical landing. He also said he was a strong proponent of full reusability, not just first stage reusability. In response to several questions, he said his CSS Freighter was modeled after the shuttle but with new upgrade designs and technology though to save money and reduce development time, the freighters were to be based on existing technology. He had much to say about the difficulty they had in upgrading space shuttle systems so this time around he said upgrades would be modular and as close to plug and play as possible. His idea is that the freighters will be built and operated by the private sector. He suggested the extensive use of composite materials to save on mass and to use reusable Space Shuttle Main Engines (SMEs). He referenced the Air Force X-37B program, he talked about the advance state of the thermal protection systems (TPS) for this top secret spacecraft suggesting it would be the TPS of choice for the freighters. Our guest was challenged in both segments regarding other reusability options including the advancement toward success represented by SpaceX and the Falcon 9. Don said it was first stage only, he was talking about full vehicle reusability and making the case for his approach with wings. Don't miss the challenges and the replies. Don also spelled out the advantages of horizontal as compared to vertical vehicle landing regarding reusability. In the second segment, BJohn asked about the Soviet version of the shuttle, the Buran. Don mostly talked about lessons learned by their not having a reusable space shuttle main engine (SME). Don was asked about international vehicle participation in his freighter project. He said not with this Congress and referenced our policy on not talking with China. Don was also asked for the rational for doing this and he focused on competition. Make sure you hear this discussion. He said he was including the Air Force in his plan given the rapid turnaround time for the vehicle (five days).

This will help me bring better programming to the audience. We welcomed back to the program Joe Carroll to update us on his work with artificial and partial gravity, plus his thoughtful considerations for what comes next for human spaceflight. I have uploaded three papers of Joe to The Space Show blog for today's program. He does refer to these papers and presentations during the show so be sure to follow along by viewing them on the blog. During the first segment of our 1 hour 41 minute program, Joe said he preferred using the term partial gravity to artificial gravity. He talked 1 g issues, tests that can be done on the ground and the need to learn about gravity limitations for humans through ISS research. Centrifuge spin rates were a significant discussion topic in this segment. Here, he referred us to Appendix A page 8 for a two page discussion on early research on this subject. See his paper titled "Partial Gravity Biology Research Paper for Space 2015 Final" on TSS blog. Joe referred several times to the Twins & one year cosmonaut/astronaut study underway on the ISS, plus the Gemini 7 mission which answered several important microgravity questions. Later, Joe suggested we look at the chart on the third slide of his Power Point where he showed the gravity factor of major bodies in our solar system. This is an interesting discussion, don't miss it. It also pointed to the importance of knowing the gravity prescription for Moon-Mars as it covers most of the solar system gravity ranges. Doug sent in an email about spin rates as high as 24 rpm. Don't miss how Joe responded to Doug who then sent in a clarification email about upright exercise in a short-arm centrifuge. Again, don't miss Joe's reply. At this point, Joe started raising questions about why Mars, asking what were the economic reasons. He referenced our National Space Policy from 2010. Joe suggested the direction of the manned program was confusing at best. He talked about the remaining residual from the Apollo momentum and the Outer Space Treaty impact on future human spaceflight. BJohn emailed in about artificial gravity experiments with cubesats. In the second segment, Tim asked several questions including one about using weighted clothing to offset microgravity. The subject of radiation exposure came up and here, Joe talked about the side effects of "fixes" which may cause even more problems than just the original problem being mitigated. He again referenced the Twin and cosmonaut/astronaut studies on the ISS now underway. Doug called regarding my earlier comments where I reference a past show in which many listeners did not think we needed to know the gravity prescription.

During the first segment of this 1 hour 53 minute program, Michael started out with a review and update regarding actions in Congress concerning commercial space legislation and the Resource Utilization Act, plus some space property issues. These topics consumed most of the first segment with active discussions going into the issue of government subsidies which Michael expressed strong feelings about. He got some blow back with listener questions and even from me. He talked about liability issues and the differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill, focusing on federal vs. state jurisdiction. John in Freemont called to inquire about "skin in the game" by the commercial space companies and here again, Michael expressed strong views and options. Doug suggested it would be more appropriate to refer to the commercial in commercial crew as public-private instead of just commercial. Michael supported Doug's comments. In the second segment, Michael switched to the topic of the RD-180 Ban which he explained in detail. Adrian challenged some of Michael's comments on subsidies as well. Michael also spoke out against wanting to cooperate with China in space. Listen to his reasons and explanations behind his perspective. Later in the segment, Andrew in Finland took issue with Michael's comments on not doing things with China and seemed to criticize Cong. Wolf for his congressional lead on not talking with China based on "one religiously-driven representative." This opened up a mini-policy program of not doing business as usual with offenders of basic human rights though as we all know we are very hypocritical about the application of this policy. Michael joined in this mini discussion with Andrew and myself which was the final topic of the day. Earlier in the second segment, commercial crew was discussed as was the European Code of Conduct, the British cubesat regulatory policy, and the fact that Israel joined COPOUS and the House re-authorized the Ex-Im bank. This brought us back to Michael's perspective on subsidies talked about in the first segment. Please post your comments/questions on TSS blog above. You can reach Michael Listner through me or his new blog, https://spacethoughtsblog.wordpress.com.

John Batchelor and I welcomed back Dr. Curt Niebur, NASAs program scientist for Cassini, to update us on the close flyby of Enceladus, one of Saturn's moons. The flyby was 30 miles above the moon's surface and took place approximately 10AM PDT Oct. 28, 2015. Cassini flew through the south pole plumes or seafloor vents of expelled water given that it is believed that Enceladus has an under the ice ocean. The flyby will be able to tell the nature and content of ocean plus much more, including the possible detection of organics. Dr. Niebur also described the north pole area since it was viewed for the first time in recent weeks, revealing a very cracked and crevice filled area. Our guest was asked about the Cassini instruments used to gather the information as it flew through the plumes and we learned that two instruments had to be recalculated to do this mission. Another topic briefly discussed was the use of nuclear power for this mission and why solar power would not have worked. Don't miss what our guest had to say about this and more regarding Cassini and this strange moon of Saturn. Please post your comments/questions on The Space Show blog above. You can email Mr. Batchelor or Dr. Niebur through me at drspace@thespaceshow.com.

This will help me bring better programming to the audience. We welcomed Blaze Sanders to the show to discuss space imaging virtual reality with the new company SpaceVR (see www.spacevr.co). During the first segment of our 88 minute show, Blaze introduced us to the SpaceVR company, their 2D technology, their goals including wanting people to become astronauts, plus STEM outreach and education. Blaze spent a good part of the first segment talking about their technology, why they use 2D instead of 3D, the side effects which suggest more usage of 2D, the viewing headsets they work with plus their subscription fee and costs. He also talked about their recent successful Kickstarter venture and mentioned that several of their perks were still available and will be for a few more weeks. If you are interested go to their Kickstarter site, www.kickstarter.com/projects/1035872323/spacevr-step-into-space?ref=project_link. Another topic that we discussed was the use of audio on their VR films plus some of the details about their special camera they have made to do the filming. In the second segment, we talked about SpaceVR stem outreach. We talked about their visits to high school students, the student interest in the space virtual reality imaging and in space as well. Later, I asked Blaze questions about black and white VR imaging, then as a result of several listener questions, Blaze said they were considering licensing their products for video games, movies, and other uses by other companies. Near the end of the program, I asked Blaze if he had always been interested in space. He told us about his early grade school interest in wanting to be an astronaut so he has been a space cadet all his life. In fact, he would consider doing a one way Mars trip to live on Mars at some point in the future. Other topics came up as the program was ending including geographic regions for their imaging, menu choices, age levels suitable for VR and more. Please post your comments/questions on TSS blog above. Blaze can be reached at the email address he gave out on air or through me.

This will help me bring better programming to the audience. We welcomed Charlie Chafer back to the program to discuss commercial space, the Celestis space memorial services and flights, plus much more. During the first segment of our 88 minute program, Charlie started out by providing an overview of the commercial space history since he played a huge role in its start decades ago. For example, he talked about the fist ever commercial launch that was done by his company, the regulatory and permit process back then, and how the industry has evolved since those early days. It’s a most interesting discussion with one of the major founders of the commercial space industry. We then changed topic to talk about the space memorial services and how this industry has changed since 1994 when Charlie co-founded Celestis. As for today, Celestis has a global customer space offering several categories of space memorial services, all of which are described on the Celestis website, www.celestis.com. There launches are far more routine today with more launch vehicle availability. Regarding the lunar service, he talked about sending Eugene Shoemaker's remains to the Moon, then later in the second segment, he talked about the commercial space significance of having done this. Celestis offers four services including Earth Rise which is suborbital, an orbital service known as Earth Orbit or Earth view, the Lunar Service, and the Voyager Service which is a deep space mission. He described each service but also he talked at length as to how Celestis carries out a memorial spaceflight starting with advance work before the launch, tours of the launch pad, a special Celestial memorial service, and the launch. Listeners asked Charlie several questions about the service including listener Judy who had seen rocket launches before and wondered how those attending a memorial service launch viewed watching a rocket launch. Before the segment ended, Charlie was asked about pet memorial services. Celestis offers the Celestis Pets Memorial service. Check out www.celestispets.com for more information on this service. In the second segment, we focused on commercial space, customers, markets, commercial waves and more. Our guest pointed out some thoughts that might suggest a possible commercial space "bubble" ahead. He also talked about & described the three waves of commercial space history. Charlie talked about his interest in opening up commercial markets in the space weather field and we talked about the value of data as a product. Regarding SSP which he mentioned, he said it has not developed but may do so down the road in the future. The same for pharmaceuticals and other energy related possibilities.

I have uploaded to The Space Show blog his Power Point presentation that he uses with this talk so be sure to visit it. He refers to many of the Power Point slides during this two hour Space Show program, especially slides featuring historical pictures. The specific URL for this program on our blog is https://thespaceshow.wordpress.com/2015/10/24/dr-john-jurist-sunday-10-25-15. During the first segment of our two hour program, Dr. Jurist discussed the origins of our space program going back to the 1920s with Robert Goddard and his rockets, and even earlier to Tsiolkovsky with the rocket equation. John then advanced the story through WW2, V2 rockets, the development of the hydrogen bomb, the creation of the NSF, then on to Sputnik and the eventual launch the first American satellite. During this overview, Dr. Jurist received many listener questions as well as questions from me so this is quite the comprehensive discussion. John also pointed out the interest in space from the public which drove media coverage. He referenced Walt Disney, von Braun's popular work, sci fi films, & Colliers Magazine articles. He mentioned several stand out events such as JFK's Rice University speech, the Apollo 1 fire and then Apollo 7 which contained thousands of human spaceflight safety advancements and improvements and the testing of many of those advancements with the Apollo 7 flight. A listener asked about nuclear propulsion and NERVA. This resulted in a phone call from Dr. Dewar who continued the discussion with nuclear propulsion but advanced it to include the development cryogenic systems to support the H bomb and then these systems making their way to NASA. John and Jim had much to say about the H bomb and space development connections so don't miss this discussion. By the way, Dr. Dewar is returning to The Space Show on Dec. 6. John talked about the biomedical advancements in aviation that contributed to safer HSF. Here, he mentioned the work by Dr. John Paul Stapp and others, especially out of Holloman AFB in New Mexico. Don't miss this discussion or the relevant PPT slides. In the second segment, John from Ft. Worth called to continue the discussion about the H-bomb and space connections, huge airplanes to deliver the large bombs and the later development of compact warheads which lead to the use of smaller missiles. They also compared these advancements to the Soviet Union program of the day as the soviets used a different system for the bomb which resulted in it being smaller than the initial American weapons. The two John's continued talking about cryogenic development. Dr. Jurist then advanced the discussion to the economic benefits - Read the rest of the summary @ www.thespaceshow.com.

Add this to another station Dr. Paul Sutter, Friday, 10-23-15 (48.94MB; download) -- Guest: Dr. Paul Sutter. Topics: Science, The Big Bang Theory, Dark Matter, Dark Energy and astrophysics. Please direct all comments and questions regarding Space Show programs/guest(s) to the Space Show blog, http://thespaceshow.wordpress.com.

This will help me bring better programming to the audience. During the first segment of our 97 minute program, Dr. Sutter opened up with a detailed discussion of the big bang theory and the physics and science to go along with it and support it with scientific evidence. Almost the entire first segment was devoted to this comprehensive discussion. We talked about proof, theories, truth, alternative ideas and scientific evidence including the cosmological microwave background light which is the oldest light in the universe. Paul described this in detail, explained that it was really microwave radiation and how it supported an expanding universe. Rather than summarizing this segment in detail, I urge you to listen to this show because it is one of the best ever Space Show science shows and discussions. In my opinion, Dr. Sutter is gifted in his ability to explain complex scientific theories and concepts in ways that those of us who are not scientists can grasp and understand facts, scientific evidence, and theories. In addition to the science, several listener questions came up along with mine about the meaning of certain words in use by the general public as compared to a scientist. This was a very illuminating discussion and I think you will agree when you hear how theory, fact, truth, plus other words are used in science and what they mean to a scientist as compared to how we use the same words in our daily vocabulary and word use. BJohn asked questions about star formation and John from Ft. Worth called and added to our scientific discussion given his physics expertise and knowledge. I personally want to thank him for his two calls which advanced the quality of our discussion, especially about an open and closed universe. Then our guest added a third possibility, a flat universe. Don't miss this part of our program. In our second segment, we talked in more detail about Dark Matter. This too was an example of the clarity given the topics by our guest so listen carefully and enjoy and appreciate how something so complex can be made so easy for us to grasp and understand. Later in the segment, a listener asked about the impact a TV show like The Big Bang Theory might have on people given the way it portrays "scientists." As this was one of my favorite TV shows, I entered the conversation and had a different set of thoughts about its impact than did our guest. Listen to hear what we both had to say about it. As I said on the show, in the 2,571 programs I have done to date, plus with all the scientists and engineers that I have met in person at conferences and elsewhere, I have yet to meet a real scientist or engineer that even comes close to being in real life the way the four Big Bang TV Show guys are with their personalities and science.
