Dr. John Jurist is the guest on this edition of The Space Show. Dr. Jurist discusses the biomedical factors associated with suborbital flights, including acceleration, radiation exposure, reduced atmosphere pressure, gas issues and more. We will also address many of these issues for orbital space flight and longer space missions to Mars, including the pros and cons for using nuclear powered vehicles. Dr. Jurist will also discuss the regulatory issues of today compared to what they were forty years ago. We also discuss the state of the commercial space industry, space policy, public interest in space, and how the consumer medical profession and insurance industry will eventually respond to space tourism and expanded space development.
