We welcomed back Dr. Madhu Thangavelu to discuss the Planetary Defense Team and their work at the ISU Summer Session which was held this year at Ohio University. About 20 minutes into the show, he was joined by one of the student participants in the session, Tihomir Dimitrov (Tisho). Madhu explained that he gave the team an impossible scenario to solve. The scenario was that a comet was heading toward Earth and would impact us in two yeas. The students had to come up with a mitigation strategy. The first segment of our program talks about the considerations, the plans, & the mitigation means which included directed energy and modified nuclear weapons. Listeners and I pushed both Dr. Thangalevu and Tisho on these two strategies, plus I challenged them on their goal of changing the world by engaging in planetary defense of the Earth, the Moon, and even Mars. I kept asking them why they don't improve humanity in Africa and the Middle East because as host, I can play the part of the devil's advocate to challenge their reasoning and thinking. In the end, it seemed that the solution to the problem was based on how much work was done in the time leading up to the discovery of the incoming comet. Our guests also talked about evacuation strategies and making touch decisions for the good of society and the planet but maybe not so good for the city, town, region or people that get hit by the comet. Its an interesting discussion and I am sure all of us would have enjoyed being in this summer session class. You can read the Executive Summary Report for this class at https://isulibrary.isunet.edu/opac/doc_num.php?explnum_id=719. The Final Report can be found at https://isulibrary.isunet.edu/opac/doc_num.php?explnum_id=722. In the second segment, Madhu talked about his upcoming design studio class with the theme this year of exploring the role of the Moon in our future space activity. He talked about the role of governments in making the Moon part of our future in space as compared to the role of private companies and entrepreneurs. At one point he said the key would be in how we change the way we look at space. When asked by a listener, Dr. Thangalevu clarified that he was talking about the role of the Moon in human space activity, not just robotic missions. Madhu also directed us to his earlier articles in Mars Daily on this subject which you can read here: (1): www.marsdaily.com/reports/The_Moon_or_Mars_Flawed_Debate_False_Choice___Part_One_999.html; (2): www.marsdaily.com/reports/Flawed_Debates_begets_false_choices_beyond_LEO___Part_Two_999.html.

This will help me bring better programming to the audience. Welcome to our Open Lines show. In the first segment of the program, I suggested a few topics and then talked about our Website Modernization Program and the new fully searchable database to deliver archival quality archives. I went over a few more of the benefits for everyone with the new site and urged listeners to not only participate in our campaign but to help spread the word through their own networks, Facebook, etc. Our support site is at www.supportthespaceshow.com and our campaign site address is www.indiegogo.com/projects/oglf-and-the-space-show- modernization-campaign/x/11584678#/story. By the way, the new site will use hyperlinks!!! John Hunt was our first caller to discuss the book "The Martian," plus his take on Dr. Woodward's mach thruster work given he had just finished reading Dr. Woodward's book. John had much to say about "The Martian," especially from a technical perspective. It is an interesting and fun discussion. His comments on mach thrusters were somewhat skeptical but he was still thinking about it and Dr. Woodward's work as detailed in his book. He will give us a report when he has reached his "final" decision. John's feedback on this is interesting given his knowledge of physics. He was asked what it might mean if Dr. Woodward's work was to be verified and commercialized. He said it would be revolutionary and would open up the solar system to space travel. Near the end of the first segment, John also mentioned EM drive, the challenges for out of box theories and work when going up against science orthodoxy & related issues. In the second segment, we heard from Jon in NJ about new uses for space shuttle main engines, SLS, and reusability which he said did not appear to be something NASA was interested in at this time given their engine use plans. Another discussion topic that came up was comparing a Return on Investment (ROI) to a Return on Exploration (ROE). I mentioned that government projects are not typically discussed in terms of an ROI and that it was very difficult to calculate a ROE because for government, that includes many things, variables, and ways of calculating outcomes. I mentioned an earlier Mars Society paper I did years ago on comparing Apollo to the school breakfast program and Hoover Dam. I addressed calculating benefits, outcomes and an economic return for each of those three projects. BJohn emailed in a comment about returns going back centuries for Mars exploration, then we got into discussing the technical knowledge and awareness of society in general.

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.

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.
