Dr. Roger Launius, Space Historian for the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, was the guest for this edition of The Space Show. Dr. Launius brought an historical perspective The Space Show regarding our space program, especially concerning the manned spaceflight program, launch vehicles, and space access. Building upon this historical perspective, we talked about our present program and needs and what may be ahead for us with our future space program, both public and private. Dr. Launius expressed his view about sending humans to Mars versus first going back to the Moon, the likelihood of a new official space policy including a grand program such as returning to the Moon to stay and sending the first humans to Mars. In addition, Dr. Launius talked about his latest books, his work at the Smithsonian, and much more.
