Wayne Smith

Wayne Smith is the original founder of the pro-nuclear space movement. This program will focus on past and future efforts researching space nuclear power including Project Orion, a 1960s program that was cancelled before launching missions to Mars & Saturn, and NASA's new program Project Prometheus, which is currently planned to launch a mission to Jupiter's moons sometime late this decade.

(This interview has been complete, but we haven't yet produced the radio show due to lack of resources for this project. We hope to resume production & release this show before the end of the year.)

History of Mars Exploration

Host James Burk provides a history of the past exploration of the Red Planet. We'll look at the early Mariner flybys, Mariner 9, Viking, Mars Pathfinder, Mars Polar Lander, and current Mars missions: Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Odyssey, and Japan's Nozomi.

(This program is almost complete, and we hope to release it in the near future.)

Mars Gravity Biosatellite Project
