Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
This is the first of two Mars Society interview programs from the 2008 Convention, August 30-September 2, 2007. For this program, there are three interviews. The first interview is with Dr. Scott Horowitz, the NASA Associate Administrator for Exploration. Dr. Horowitz was one of the keynote speakers for Friday, August 31 and in that address he did a comprehensive presentation regarding the NASA plan to take us back to the Moon and on to Mars. In his Space Show interview, which was limited due to his travel and time constraints, I asked him 3-4 main questions, focusing on hardware issues and reported problems with Aries 1, political uncertainties for the future health of the VSE, and business/commercial uncertainties given the high cost of lunar access using the NASA hardware and infrastructure. The second interview is with Mark Hopkins of the National Space Society. We spoke about space advocacy, Mars, reaching out to Gen Y, and what you need in the way of community support to influence national policy. The last interview on this show is also with an NSS representative, Bart Leahy. We spoke political action with Bart, Gen Y issues, Huntsville rocket culture and more.
