For the third of these short programs, we welcomed back Richard Easton. Richard has been a guest several times regarding GPS, the role his father played in timing and creating GPS, and his book on the subject. He is also a frequent caller to The Space Show. Richard talked about using Space Show archives to research his recent GPS book, some of the challenges he faced given the existing website and archive limitations, plus his looking forward to having the benefit of a fully searchable database with archival quality archives. I asked if this was only important to him as an historian or author or if he thought the new site would have value for a space enthusiast not writing a book or doing research. Don't miss his answer. He also talked about the quality of Space Show programming, guests, and the way the show is managed, all of which contributed mightily to his research for his book. Be for we ended the segment, I asked about his next project which was to write about P.V.H. Weems and his early contribution to aviation navigation.

This will help me bring better programming to the audience. We welcomed back Charles Miller to discuss in detail the recently released NASA Study, "Evolvable Lunar Architecture that Leverages Commercial Space Capabilities and Public Private Partnerships." You can read and download the report, "Evolvable Lunar Architecture that Leverages Commercial Space Capabilities and Public Private Partnerships" at http://titan04.ksc.nasa.gov/shuttle/nexgen/Nexgen_Downloads/NexGen_ELA_Report_FINAL.pdf. During the first segment of our 1 hour 39 minute show, Charles introduced us to the study, the background as to why the need for the study, plus he said that to find an affordable way to move humans out into the cosmos there needed to be an affordable way to do it. He briefly summarized the history of efforts to return to the Moon since Apollo, then explained why this new approach, modeled after the COTS program, was so much better. Through the creative use of the public-private partnership program, returning to the Moon can be easier and more affordable. Charles was asked lots of listener questions including questions that addressed the TRL level of both NASA and the private companies to go to the moon, public and private risk taking, commercial competition, and the strategic use of fuel depots to further reduce mission costs. He explained their program step by step through three phases. Listener Dan asked a series of question about robots being serviced on the Moon, asking if the humans would be better placed elsewhere to control the lunar robots using low latency telepresence rather than humans on the Moon. Don't miss how Charles responded to this series of questions that Dan emailed us. BJohn was also active with questions ranging from asking about the Lunar Mission One program to questions about the costs and assumptions used in the NASA study, even the use of GEO. Other listeners wanted to know about lunar settlement as part of this study, lunar habitats, and using L2 rather than the lunar surface. Listeners also asked Charles about lunar microgravity issues and radiation. Charles had the most to say about radiation issues. Later in the segment he said the plan called for a migration of the initial program to something like an international lunar authority modeled after CERN and modern airport authorities. Dan asked another question about getting astronauts off the moon in an emergency wondering if there would be greater safety margins if humans were not required on the lunar surface. Charles indicated that there would be a lunar escape system on the Moon. Read the fully summary @ www.thespaceshow.com or http://thespaceshow.wordpress.com.

This will help me bring better programming to the audience. We welcomed Russell Cox to the program for our 92 minute discussion of the Lunar Initiatives workshops. Follow us at www.lunarinitiatives.com. Russell began the discussion by providing us with the background that led him to create the Lunar Initiatives workshop series. The start goes back to 2009 with the lunar missions that showed there was water ice at the poles. He said this changed the Moon and science for all time and opened up an entirely new realm of lunar possibilities and opportunities. He spent some time discussing the key lunar missions & their significance. Next, we turned our attention to the Lunar Workshops, Lunar Art, and the Lunar Challenges. All are described on his website so check them out. Regarding the workshops, he has a LunarCubes workshop, the Lunar Surface Applications workshop, the Lunar Scientific Opportunities in Cislunar Space (SOCS) workshop, and the Lunar Conference. Read about all of these events on his website but for our discussion, we mostly talked about LunarCubes and cubesats, Cislunar space, and near the end of the show, LunarArt. In addition to discussing The Lunar Initiatives events, Russell talked about returning to the Moon, lunar hackathons, prizes and contests, entrepreneurial efforts to go to the Moon, the Google Lunar XPRIZE, cubesats, the Do It Yourself (DIY) emerging markets, and more. Listeners asked him questions about lunar exploration, the technology readiness level of the entrepreneurs wanting to develop a business for going to the Moon, lunar settlement, lunar habitats, and using the Moon as a stepping stone for other solar system destinations. Don't miss his response to these questions. In the second segment, Russell spent more time on human lunar exploration and settlement and the need to push the technology today to do what we can today rather than waiting to be able to do more in future years. He said the road to the Moon is open! Russell described several existing opportunities including one by Space Systems Loral that you will find interesting. A listener asked him if we needed to focus on developing cislunar transportation, then our conversation switched to Lunar Art and their programs and contests in this area. He said poetry and short stories were included in this category and the contest. Late in the segment, Tim called in to raise questions about settlement given the possibility of gamma ray bursts plus comments from Dr. John Lewis regarding the Moon. Before the show ended, our guest addressed a few more listener emails, then spoke more about the LunarCubes program and website, www.lunarcubes.com. Please post your comments/questions on TSS blog above. You can reach Russell through his website or me.

We welcomed back Jeremy Straub with several of the student participants in this summer's UND undergraduate research program for small spacecraft satellites. Jeremy was joined by Delia, Davila, Wentong Zhang, Samuel Jackson, Alexander Layton, Emily Jenkins, and Matthew Russell. During the first segment of our 82 minute program, Jeremy introduced us to students Samuel Jackson, Matthew Russell, Wanting Zhang & Delia Davila. Each student spent a few minutes going over their research project and interests. I've listed each student & their project in the bio section of this archive program but we did focus on issues dealing with cubesats and higher orbits with the need to deorbit them without causing debris. Neural networks were discussed along with adversarial examples and training problems using a grass and a cow as an example. Don't miss this discussion. Samuel talked about cryptographic algorithms and picture encryption, then Matthew talked about the adaptive attitude control systems for a small satellite or cubesat. He said he was focusing on intrusion detection security for existing satellite security solutions. Jeremy added in details for each of the student research projects and tied the focus to smallsats, especially since all were attending this year's SmallSat Conference in Logan, Utah. In the second segment, Alex Layton led off with his project to find new ways to measure distances with cameras using image processing techniques. He addressed X-Y coordinate issues and more. Emily focused her research on astrodynamics for maintaining orbits and deorbiting small satellites and cubesats from much higher altitudes such as 600 miles above Earth. She had much to say about cubesat orbits today and how they were evolving to higher orbits in a very short period of time. Throughout both segments, Jeremy and the students spoke about various NASA programs and funding opportunities, getting a launch and being placed on a ride share launch manifest. We also had quite the discussion on cybersecurity issues, at times comparing a cyber attack to a physical attack on a satellite. Don't miss what Jeremy had to say on this subject. As our program was nearing the end, we talked about the SmallSat Conference this year, networking opportunities for the students and their future plans. Please post your comments/questions on TSS blog above. You can reach Jeremy Straub through me and any of the students through Jeremy.

See the links above for our actual crowd funding site on Indiegogo, our Support The Space Show support site, our YouTube video, and our Space Show Facebook fan page. I started off talking about the 501C3 status for our project and what this might mean for you the donor as The Space Show is a nonprofit corporation through One Giant Leap Foundation, Inc. In the early part of our discussion, we talked about having listeners beta test the new website as its developed, plus the Honor Roll for Space Show donors which will be a part of the new website. I also talked about the new Space Show logo designed by my son Jordan. Together with a special autograph, the autograph new logo is the Special Edition Logo that for this campaign only will be on the Perk Space Show gear including the external hard drives. Next, we discussed each of our 17 Perks (incentives), going through each one and explaining the terms or certain issues regarding a specific Perk such as hosting your own Space Show program or webinar. We also talked about domestic and international shipping rates. I went into detail on the host your own Space Show Program perk to let everyone know how such a program would work. I also mentioned that were we to discover really good Space Show hosts, we would develop a substitute host program for future Space Show programs when a substitute host was needed. Spencer and I talked about the logistics for both the Space Show Program Collection Perks using external hard drives to give those wanting their own special collection of Space Show programs and webinars, plus a five year annual subscription to all Space Show programs and webinars.

This will help me bring better programming to the audience. We welcomed Charlie Precourt back to the show to discuss SLS-Orion progress and milestones, human spaceflight, technology advancement, & much more. During our one segment 63 minute discussion, I first asked out guest about the Orbital ATK merger and business under the combined companies. We soon shifted to the SLS-Orion discussion which included information on the 5 segment solid rocket booster (SRB), tonnage to escape which our guest explained, possible missions, and opportunities that will become available as a result of having this heavy lift rocket available for missions that need the lift & high energy capacity of SLS. We talked about shorter travel times, larger payload mass & volume, plus higher energy transfer orbits using SLS as compared to an EELV. Charlies was asked about SRB safety for human spaceflight. Don't miss his comments on this issue. He talked at length about the benefits of marrying the SRB for lift out of a gravity well to liquids for propulsion once in space. Our guest provided statistics on SRB launches and uses to support what he was telling us. Charlie also talked about his Space Shuttle flight experience and the Shuttle's SME, especially when there was an SME problem on one of his shuttle flights. We talked about going BLEO and he introduced us to the concept of One Space. As a result of listener questions, our guest talked about SLS costs, its design for multiple destinations and missions, and the launch "sweet spot" that it would fill. BJohn asked if there were uses for an SRB or solid rocket motor in space. Charlie said for liftoff from a gravity well, yes, but otherwise the SPI for a solid was likely too low for in-space propulsion. I asked our guest about Orbital ATK meeting the SLS -Orion milestones and upcoming flight testing. Jeff from Tucson called in about the use of modern technology including light weight epoxy material for SRBs & other spaceflight hardware. Near the end of the program, I asked Charlie about the justification for HSF to see what he had to say about it. Don't miss his reply. We then talked about technology challenges in going to Mars, choices that were made to do the shuttle and ISS over deep space missions, and destinations that were still Earth dependent as compared to those being Earth independent such as Mars. Jack emailed in a question based on a show earlier in the week where the guest said that for putting SPS infrastructure in space, SLS was too sophisticated. What was needed was big rockets that had a 2% failure rate as that rocket would be lots cheaper than an SLS.

This will help me bring better programming to the audience. We welcomed back to the show Hannah Kerner for this 61 minute discussion about here recent space.com op-ed, "The Space Destination Debate Gets Us Nowhere…Literally." You can read her op-ed at www.space.com/29659-debating-space-destination-is-grounding-exploration.html. Hannah is also the incoming new Executive Director of The Space Frontier Foundation (SFF) so we talked with about her ideas on space advocacy as well as SFF. We started out with a focus on the space destination debate which Hannah said was frustrating, not productive, and helped to create the situation where nobody goes anyplace. She also suggested that regardless of the destination, all space destinations benefit one another. The Stepping Stone Approach was discussed, especially in terms of what makes most sense from both the TRL and economic perspectives. Later in the segment, Hannah talked about the impact of the current go nowhere human spaceflight program on young people or millennials in school and entering the job market. This was a very interesting discussion from the millennial perspective so don't miss it. As an example, our guest compared career options with NASA to those with companies such as Microsoft, Google, Apple, and other tech giants. We talked about their quick turnaround time with projects as compared to really long space projects, maybe up to a decade or more, with the risk of delays and even cancellation. Using the Europa mission as an example, I asked her how that would be viewed by a person in school wanting to do something important but seeing how long it would take plus the risks of delays or even project cancellation. She talked about devoting one's career to a life long project like that and how that might be viewed by today's students and graduates. For the balance of the program, we turned to The Space Frontier Foundation (SFF) and space advocacy in general. Hannah told us about an informal survey SFF conducted at the recent NewSpace Conference asking people how they viewed space players like Russia, China, India, the US, etc., either in terms of tension or innovation. She said 70% of those responding viewed participation by these players as spurring innovation, not adding to national or global tensions. The Linda Billings Scientific American article came up and Hannah gave us a different perspective than we have been hearing. She did not think it was an attack on SFF but rather the author was not that well informed about the Foundation or NewSpace.
