1. Monday, March 10, 2-3:30 PM PDT (4-5:30 PM CDT, 5-6:30 PM EDT) : We welcome back DR. ERIC SEEDHOUSE to discuss his new book, "Suborbital: Industry at the Edge of Space."
Erik Seedhouse is an aerospace scientist whose ambition has always been to work as an astronaut. After completing his first degree in Sports Science at Northumbria University the author joined the legendary 2nd Battalion the Parachute Regiment, the world’s most elite airborne regiment. During his time in the ‘Para’s’ Erik spent six months in Belize, where he was trained in the art of jungle warfare and conducted several border patrols along the Belize-Guatemala border. Later, he spent several months learning the intricacies of desert warfare on the Akamas Range in Cyprus. He made more than thirty jumps from a Hercules C130 aircraft, performed more than two hundred abseils from a helicopter and fired more light anti-tank weapons than he cares to remember! Upon returning to the comparatively mundane world of academia, the author embarked upon a Master’s degree in Medical Science at Sheffield University. He supported his master’s degree studies by winning prize money in 100km ultradistance running races. Shortly after placing third in the World 100km Championships in 1992 and setting the North American 100km record, the author turned to ultradistance triathlon, winning the World Endurance Triathlon Championships in 1995 and 1996. For good measure, he also won the inaugural World Double Ironman Championships in 1995 and the infamous Decatriathlon, the world’s longest triathlon, an event requiring competitors to swim 38km, cycle 1800km, and run 422km. Non-stop! Returning to academia once again in 1996, Erik pursued his Ph.D. at the German Space Agency’s Institute for Space Medicine. While conducting his Ph.D studies he still found time to win Ultraman Hawaii and the European Ultraman Championships as well as completing the Race Across America bike race. Due to his success as the world’s leading ultradistance triathlete Erik was featured in dozens of magazines and television interviews. In 1997, GQ magazine nominated him as the ‘Fittest Man in the World’. In 1999, Erik decided it was time to get a real job. He retired from being a professional triathlete and started his post-doctoral studies at Vancouver’s Simon Fraser University’s School of Kinesiology. While living in Vancouver, Erik gained his pilot’s license, started climbing mountains and took up sky-diving to relax in his spare time. In 2005 the author worked as an astronaut training consultant for Bigelow Aerospace in Las Vegas and wrote ‘Tourists in Space’, a training manual for spaceflight participants. He is a Fellow of the British Interplanetary Society and a member of the Aerospace Medical Association. Recently, he was one of the final thirty candidates of the Canadian Space Agency’s Astronaut Recruitment Campaign. Erik currently works as manned spaceflight consultant and author. He plans to travel into space with one of the private spaceflight companies. As well as being a triathlete, skydiver, pilot and author, Erik is an avid scuba diver and has logged more than two hundred dives in more than twenty countries. His favorite movie is the director’s cut of ‘Blade Runner’, his favorite science fiction authors are Allen Steele and Stanislav Lem and his favorite science fiction series is Red Dwarf. ‘Prepare for Launch’ is his fifth book. When not writing, he spends as much time as possible in Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii and at his real home in Sandefjord, Norway. Erik lives with his wife and two cats on the Niagara Escarpment in Canada.

2. THURSDAY, March 13, 2014; 7-8:30 PM PDT (9-10:30 PM CDT, 10-11:30 PM EDT) : We welcome back DR. ROBERT ZUBRIN to the show. Bob will be talking about the new Mars Society program, Mars Arctic 365.
Dr. Robert Zubrin is a noted author and the Founder of The Mars Society. The Mars Society, an international organization dedicated to furthering the exploration and settlement of Mars by both public and private means. Dr. Zubrin is also President of Pioneer Astronautics, an aerospace R&D company located in Lakewood, Colorado. Dr. Zubrin was formerly a Staff Engineer at Lockheed Martin Astronautics in Denver, he holds a Masters degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics and a Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Washington. Zubrin is the inventor of several unique concepts for space propulsion and exploration, the author of over 100 published technical and non-technical papers in the field, and was a member of Lockheed Martin’s “scenario development team” charged with developing broad new strategies for space exploration. In that capacity, he was responsible for developing the "Mars Direct" mission plan, a strategy which by using Martian resources, allows a human Mars exploration program to be conducted at a cost 1/8th that previously estimated by NASA. Zubrin is known internationally as one of the most creative engineers working in the aerospace industry today, and he and his work have been subject of much favorable press coverage in The Economist, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, the London Times, The Washington Post, Fortune Magazine, Newsweek, Air and Space Smithsonian, Popular Science, Omni, Space News, and many other publications. He is the holder of two US Patents, and has two more pending. In addition to his technical publications, Dr. Zubrin is the author of "The Case for Mars: How We Shall Settle the Red Planet and Why We Must," published by Simon and Schuster’s Free Press Division in Oct. 1996, and “Entering Space: Creating a Spacefaring Civilization,” published by Tarcher Putnam in Aug. 1999, and “Mars on Earth” published by Tarcher Penguin in Sept. 2003. His book, “The Holy Land,” is a science fiction satire of the current situation in the Middle East. Dr. Zubrin has also written a play about Benedict Arnold. His latest book, "How To Live On Mars: A Trusty Guidebook To Surviving And Thriving On The Red Planet," is a must read.

3. The Friday March 14, 2014 program from 9:30-11 AM PDT, (12:30-2 PM EDT, 11:30 AM 1 PM CDT): We welcome back Robert Walker on artificial gravity and his space writings on www.science20.com/space.
Robert Walker is an inventor & programmer for Tune Smithy, Bounce Metronome, Virtual flower, Lissajous 3D, and Activity Timer. I trained as a mathematician originally. Went on to study philosophy then to do post graduate research into set theory and foundations of mathematics. Then got involved in inventing board games, one of them was accepted for publication by Gibson's Games, large UK games company, but they were unable to publish it because of technical difficulties, unable to make the pieces at a suitable price, major disappointment. I then got involved in programming music after I invented a particular type of fractal tune based on self similar sloth canon sequences. It's related to the Danish composer Per Nørgård's "infinity sequence" though not identical. Through these tunes I got involved in music software programming, first in order to hear what the tunes sounded like myself - but then added more capabilities and began to sell the software commercially. I added microtonal capabilities originally just to explore more tunes, but then got a lot of interest from microtonal composers, as it gave an easy way to compose and play microtonal music on many synthesizers and computers. At present my main focus is on Bounce Metronome, another music program valued by musicians for its ability to play complex polyrhythms, rhythm cycles etc., and for its visual "bounce" effect inspired by the motion of a conductor's baton. I have had a long term special interest in astronomy, and space science since the 1970s. I have also researched into cellular automata, recreational mathematics, and non periodic tiling's, etc. This column could be about any of those topics, or more.

4. The Sunday, March 16, 2014 program from 12-1:30 PM PDT, (3-4:30 PM EDT, 2-3:30 PM CDT): We welcome back DR. DOUG PLATA to further discuss his Cislunar One concept with trades.
Dr. Plata is a physician and public health specialist in Loma Linda, CA. His undergraduate degree was in biophysics and he went on to complete his MD and MPH with specialty training in Family and Preventive Medicine. His involvement in space has emerged only in the last three years. His primary interest in space is the development of a cis-lunar transportation infrastructure based upon lunar polar ice for propellant. A description of his concept can be found at CisLunarOne.com. He established the on-line Lunar COTS petition which has attracted signatures of individuals from NASA, industry, academia, advocacy organizations, and space journalists.
