Broadcast 1112 (Special Edition)

Guest: Dr. Jordin Kare. Topics: Laser launch, power beaming, space elevator, laser weapons, Mockingbird. Dr. Kare returned to The Space Show for updates with laser launch systems and more. We learned about the beam module approach and his work to win the NASA Climber Challenge through his company LaserMotive (www.lasermotive.com). We also discussed heat exchanger propulsion and the use of different materials for the exchanger such as Silicon Carbide. As a result of listener questions, we discussed the laser for use with the space elevator and Dr.

Guest: Dr. Bryan Laubscher. Topics: Space elevator, space elevator traffic management, planetary defense, elevator timeline, Japanese space elevator. Dr. Bryan Laubscher returned to update us on the space elevator conferences from 2008 and the upcoming 2009 conference which will be August 12-16, 2009 in Redmond, WA. Some of the many space elevator topics discussed included the progress being made with carbon nanotubes (CNTs), space policy and the elevator, the Japanese elevator, and more.

Broadcast 524 (Special Edition)

Dr. Jordin Kare returned to The Space Show to update us on laser launch. Laser launch, as we learned from Dr. Kare, is making progress and the price for components is coming down. In this program, we learned the basics and the theory behind laser launch, we discussed many of its applications from LEO uses, to launching nuclear waste to deep space, to space solar power, and to playing a significant role in the VSE in conjunction with on orbit construction. We discussed the economics of laser launch and how it supports the space elevator.
