Roderick and Randa Milliron

Randa Milliron is the CEO and co-founder of Interorbital Systems (IOS), a private-sector rocket manufacturing and orbital space launch corporation based in Mojave, California. Randa holds a BA in Psychology and an MA in African Languages from Duquesne University. She is a doctoral candidate in Communication at Humboldt Universitaet, Berlin, Germany, and has undertaken additional formal studies in Chemistry. Randa's current scientific involvement at Interorbital Systems includes experimentation in the development of heat-resistant composite materials. She also coordinates marketing, all regulatory and launch licensing issues, as well as documenting all rocket engine and launch vehicle systems testing. Roderick Milliron, President, Co-Founder, and Chief Scientist of Interorbital Systems holds a BS in Mathematics from the University of Pittsburgh, with graduate work in Chemistry at the Freie Universitaet in Berlin, Germany. Mr. Milliron has over two decades of experience in the Aerospace Industry-- as an engineer with Grumman Aerospace and General Dynamics--before founding Interorbital in 1996. At IOS, he has designed and successfully designed, prototyped, and fired space-capable rocket engines using both cryogenic and storable liquid propellants. He is responsible for the entire design of both the Sea Star microsat launcher and the Neptune manned orbital rockets. Rod's goal is to provide the transportation system to affordably access Low Earth Orbit, the Moon and beyond -- and to play a role in exploring and colonizing the Solar System.

Broadcast 1004 (Special Edition)

Guests: Randa and Rod Milliron of Interorbital Systems, Inc. returned to The Space Show today in order to update us on new developments with their company. Having just returned from the SmallSat Conference and seeing the Millirons there, we decided to start our discussion with their presentation subject from SmallSat regarding Cubesats. Then, we focused on ocean launch which Interorbital is using. Their Sea Star rocket is being designed for CubeSat launches with engine testing and test flights at the end of this year and commercial operations due later in 2009.

Broadcast 459 (Special Edition)

Randa and Roderick Milliron of Interorbital Systems were the special guests for this Space Show program. Interorbital Systems (www.interorbital.com) is planning orbital space tourism, eventual lunar visits and an even futuristic space tourism mission to Venus. During this interview, Randa and Rod explain their unique offshore ocean launching system, the selected launch sites, their progress with AST and other regulatory issues, their time line, and their plan to sell tickets for space tourism now at a discounted price.

Broadcast 74 (Special Edition)

Rod and Randa Milliron discuss their Interorbital Space Systems approach and plan to launching a sounding rocket to 65 miles above Earth, well into space. They also talk about launch opportunities from the open ocean at Spaceport Tonga, the South Texas Spaceport, orbital vacations, manned spaceflight, the Neptune Orbital Spaceliner which is an RLV, their lunar vacation plans, rocket technology, and more.
