We welcomed Dr. Pascal Lee back to the program to tell us about The Northwest Passage Drive Expedition, what they learned that can be useful for crews going to the surface of Mars, including how to select a Martian crew and more. A documentary film, "Passage To Mars," was made of this expedition which we also talked about. During the first segment of our 90 minute discussion, Dr. Lee talked about the infrastructure needed for the expedition including vehicles, supplies, and the terrain that they would be traveling across. Several times during this segment as well as the second segment, he stressed the need for two vehicles in case one got stuck or had a breakdown. The expedition used specially equipped Humvee's. Pascal also talked about the fact that it took three seasons to complete the expedition. Our guest described traveling across sea-ice which was surface used by the expedition. Listener Jack asked Pascal how similar the expedition terrain was to Mars. Our guest said that Mars was more dangerous and confined. For example, the Northwest Passage Expedition did not travel in a lethal environment but there were also some similarities. Pascal talked about how Mars was more treacherous and why. Ben asked about radiation since traveling far north on Earth exposes people to higher doses of radiation. Our guest had much to say about this topic, measurements taken at Devon Island, and areas on Mars where Curiosity has show not so much radiation but then other areas on Mars where the cosmic rays mix with the Martian soil with hydrogen for much greater radiation levels. Listener Carl asked about crew issues. Pascal listed five standards that should be considered when selecting a crew, even for Mars. I suggest you make note of the five standards as we will be talking about them on future Space Show program. In the second segment, our first question came from Mohammad in Amman, Jordan inquiring about Pascal reaching out to other Mars advocacy organizations and individuals to do scientific research on their expeditions and missions. Pascal had much to say about this, especially in support of SpaceX and Elon Musk and just the opposite with Mars One. Don't miss all of Pascal's reply to Mohammad. Linda wanted to know about lessons learned and applying them to the Martian moons. Pascal was a big supporter of going to the Martian moons first so be sure to listen to what he had to say about this subject. He did say going to the Martian surface was a tall order. Pascal mentioned that there were about 50 sites being considered for the first Mars human landing site. I asked him how planetary protection might alter these plans. This caused our guest to tell us about the microbiology study that they did regarding possible contamination on the expedition. They published there findings in the June issue of Astrobiology.

Add this to another station Patrick (Pat) Host, Tuesday, 5-3-16 (24.48MB; download) -- Guest: Patrick Host; National security, military and defense issues regarding the use of space. Please direct all comments and questions regarding specific Space Show programs & guest(s) to the Space Show blog which is part of archived program on our website, www.thespaceshow.com. Comments and questions should be relevant to the specific Space Show program. Written Transcripts of Space Show programs are a violation of our copyright and are not permitted without prior written consent, even if for your own use.

In addition, please remember that your Amazon purchases can help support The Space Show/OGLF. See www.onegiantleapfoundation.org/amazon.htm. We welcomed Patrick (Pat) Host to the program to discuss national security, defense, and military space. We started our 1 hour 47 minute discussion with a first segment that focused on the RD180 issue. While we have talked about it before, Pat provided us a different perspective for this thorough discussion which also went into civil space and issues over competition. You do not want to miss this discussion. Pat also talked about the main players on both sides driving the RD180 issue. Another topic covered in the first segment focused on protecting our existing space assets, including cyber issues and essential cyber protection. Our guest had much to say on this topic, including DoD priorities. Several listener email questions came in. Ben from Boston wanted to know about national security launches and SpaceX. Our guest supported multiple launch providers but listen to his comments for detail. Another listener asked about DOD and the potential threats posed by Iran and N. Korea. Unfortunately, our guest was not able to offer us much on this topic. For the second segment, note that there was an editing glitch as the segment started. I did pick up on the glitch quickly but could not restore the first few minutes. However, when I realized what had happened, I asked Pat the initial question over again so you did not miss anything despite the glitch. My apologies for this as the mistake was on me. That said, we started the second segment with Pat telling us about Rep. Jim Bridenstine from Oklahoma wanting more accountability for DOD and more. Our guest referenced the American Space Renaissance Act. Read about the Act which was introduced at the recent Space Foundation Conference in April at Colorado Springs, http://bridenstine.house.gov/space/?postid=710. I urge you to become familiar with this proposed legislation which covers national security, civil, commercial, and military space issues. I'm sure we will hear much more about it as time goes on. Satellite communication issues were discussed in this segment as they are very important and key for national security space and the Air Force. Pat did a good job of putting these issues in focus for us, helping to understand them and their importance. Richard Easton called to talk GPS OCS and GPS 3. This was a good exchange, don't miss it. Next, Pat introduced us to the issue of what to do with excess ICBM motors. DOD has kept retired ICBM motors in good condition and Orbital ATK wants DOD to sell them for commercial use,. This is very controversial with most commercial launch companies opposing the idea. Pat explained the issue to us, the role of Congress as congressional approval would be required to sell them. I also asked him what the success rate might be for using these retired engines. That remains an unknown but there is an expected failure rate with them. Burton from Montreal sent in two emails asking about DOD launches requiring bigger rockets than a Delta IV Hea
