Podcast: Author Robert Zubrin on The Space Show

Dr. Robert Zubrin, noted author, aerospace engineer, and president of The Mars Society, appeared recently as a guest on The Space Show, a California radio program hosted by Dr. David Livingston that focuses on issues influencing the development of outer-space commerce and space tourism.

In a lengthy conversation that lasted nearly 90 minutes and which you can listen to as a podcast, Dr. Zubrin and Dr. Livingston discussed Mars, Methane and life on Mars, human missions to Mars, President Obama's space policy, the Moon vs. Mars, NASA, terraforming Mars, space solar power for Mars, and Dr. Zubrin's new book How to Live on Mars: A Trusty Guidebook to Surviving And Thriving on the Red Planet (2008).
