1. Monday, Dec. 9, 2013; 2-3:30 PM PST (4-5:30 PM CST, 5-6:30 PM EST) : We welcome back MICHELLE EVANS for updates and more information regarding her best selling X-15 book," The X-15 Rocket Plane: Flying the First Wings into Space.
Michelle Evans is founder and president of Mach 25 Media (www.Mach25Media.com) and is a writer, photographer, and communications specialist for aerospace news worldwide through her company. She writes and produces publications, creates photographs, and produces video programs used across the country at government centers, museums, and observatories. Her clients include the Griffith Observatory, HBO, ABC Entertainment, and Space Camp (in both California and Turkey). Her articles have appeared in Ad Astra, Space Daily, Space.com, and many other sources. She grew up during the early space program, which included the exciting research flights of the X-15 rocket plane. Her dream for many years has been to write a book on the program, not from the technical perspective, but at a more personal level from those involved in the program. This has now come to fruition with a book contract with the University of Nebraska Press for Michelle’s work, “X-15: Wings Into Space, Flying the First Reusable Spacecraft.” Her book will be a part of the Outward Odyssey series covering human spaceflight history, and is scheduled for release in late 2011. Michelle is also president of the Orange County Space Society (www.OCSpace.org), a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about space exploration. OCSS works closely with science centers and aerospace museums in Southern California, providing education and display services for astronaut appearances, lectures, book signings, and other space-related events. She has a deep passion for the future of humanity in space.
Listeners can talk to Michelle Evans or the host using toll free 1 (866) 687-7223, by sending e-mail during the program using firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org. To use Skype from your computer with a headset, the I. D. is thespaceshow. Skype is only available if when announced at the beginning of the program. Please note the toll free number is only available during a live Space Show program. At all other times, it is disconnected.
2. Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013; 7-8:30 PM PST (9-10:30 PM CST, 10-11:30 PM EST) : We welcome back DR. WENDELL MENDELL, Planetary Scientist at NASA JSC. We will be talking the Moon and much more.
Dr. Wendell Mendell is a Planetary Scientist serving as Assistant Administrator for Exploration in the Directorate for Astromaterials Research & Exploration Science of the NASA Johnson Space Center, where he has been employed since 1963. He is married and has four children. Dr. Mendell has a B.S. in physics from CalTech; a M.S. in physics from UCLA; and a M.S. in Space Science and a Ph.D. in Space Physics and Astronomy from Rice University. His scientific research focus is remote sensing of planetary surfaces, particularly specializing in thermal emission radiometry and spectroscopy of the Moon. Since 1982, his activities in NASA have focused on planning and advocacy of human exploration of the solar system, especially on the establishment of a permanent human base on the Moon. His interests lay as much with policy issues as with technical solutions. He is most well known as the editor of the volume, Lunar Bases and Space Activities of the 21st Century; and he received the 1988 Space Pioneer Award for Science and Engineering from the National Space Society for this work. Dr. Mendell is currently detailed to the Constellation Systems Program Office as Chief, Office for Lunar & Planetary Exploration. He acts as a liaison between the scientific community and the Program responsible for implementing the Vision for Space Exploration. He is an Associate Faculty of the International Space University. At the ISU, he has led Design Projects for an International Lunar Base (1988), International Mars Mission (1991), International Lunar Farside Observatory and Science Station (1993), Vision 20/20 [a sampling of the future as seen by young space professionals] (1995), and Space Tourism: From Dream to Reality (2000). He belongs to several professional scientific and engineering societies. He is most active in the International Academy of Astronautics, where he is currently serving on Academic Commission III for Space Systems; and in the AIAA, where he has chaired the Space Science and Astronomy Technical Committee and sits on the International Activities Committee. He served on (and chaired) the Executive Committee of the Aerospace Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers.He has been editor for nine technical volumes and has published over 40 articles in professional journals and conference proceedings. He is also author of numerous abstracts and short papers presented at technical conferences.
Listeners can talk with Dr. Wendell Mendell or the host using toll free 1 (866) 687-7223, by sending e-mail during the program using email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com.

3. The Friday, Dec. 13, 2013 program from 9:30-11 AM PST, (12:30-2 PM EST, 11:30 AM 1 PM CST): We welcome DR. DAVID BRAIN to discuss Maven, Mars, and much more. Dr. Brain is co-investigator for Maven.
Dr. David Brain is an assistant professor in the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics and the Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences at the University of Colorado. As a planetary scientist, he studies the interaction of unmagnetized planets such as Mars, Venus, and the Moon with their space environment. This topic is exciting to him because charged particles and magnetic fields from the Sun are believed to have fundamentally altered these bodies over the past 4+ billion years. By studying processes that occur there today we hope to unravel how these planets evolved, and why their atmospheres are so different from our own. He is a Co-Investigator for the MAVEN mission to Mars, scheduled to launch in November 2013 and a member of the Colorado Center for Lunar Dust and Atmospheric Studies. He received his Ph.D from the University of Colorado in 2002, and spent 8 years at the University of California Berkeley before hitting the jackpot and returning to CU.
Listeners can talk with Dr. David Brain or the host and express their views using toll free 1 (866) 687-7223, and by sending e-mail during the program using firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also use Skype from your computer with a headset. The I. D. is thespaceshow. Please note that Skype is only available when announced as such at the beginning of each program.

4. The Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013 program from 12-1:30 PM PST, (3-4:30 PM EST, 2-3:30 PM CST): We welcome back Eric Lerner of Focus Fusion for fusion research updates.
Eric J. Lerner, President of Lawrenceville Plasma Physics, Inc. to the program (see http://lawrencevilleplasmaphysics.com/ and also www.focusfusion.org). Mr. Lerner has been active in DPF research for over 25 years. Beginning in 1984, he developed a detailed quantitative theory of the functioning of DPF. Based on this theory, he proposed that the DPF could achieve high ion and electron energies at high densities, suitable for advanced fuel fusion and space population. Under a series of contracts with JPL, he planned and participated in carrying out experiments that tested and confirmed this theory. In addition, he developed an original model of the role of the strong magnetic field effect on DPF functioning, showing that this effect could have a large effect on increasing ion temperature and decreasing electron temperature. He is as well a leading researcher in cosmology and astrophysics, developing original, plasma-based theories of quasars, large-scale structure and other phenomena of the Universe. As a writer about science and technology he is the author of over 600 articles. He was also a visiting astronomer at the European Southern Observatory. He is now the lead scientist in a new series of experiments in NJ designed to test the scientific feasibility of focus fusion, burning hydrogen-boron fuel with the DPF to produce cheap, clean energy. Mr. Lerner received a BA in Physics from Columbia University and did graduate work in physics at the University of Maryland.
Listeners can talk with Eric Lerner or the host and express their views using toll free 1 (866) 687-7223, and by sending e-mail during the program using email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
