NASA Phoenix mission

Broadcast 745 (Special Edition)

Robert Richards was the guest for this Space Show program. We began talking about the upcoming NASA Phoenix mission to Mars as Bob's company, Optech, Inc. in Canada, had a Mars weather station on board. We talked about various aspects of the mission and the weather station, from how it was built, to having backup hardware in case of a launch disaster, to doing Martian missions and more. This discussion led to yet another discussion about the importance of the manned space program for the Moon and eventually to Mars as compared to science, robotic and delayed manned missions.
