Mars Exploration Program

Broadcast 462 (Special Edition)

M. G. Lord was the guest for this special Space Show program. M. G. began the interview jumping right in with the "colorful" history of one of the JPL founders, Frank Malina, explaining both his rocket brilliance and his flirtation with communism and more. Growing up as a young girl in the 50's with a Dad who was a JPL engineer and a mom terminally ill, gave M. G. perspectives and issues to address which she does very well in her book, "Astro Turf: The Private Life of Rocket Science." We also discussed other aspects of the early days of JPL through its evolution into the modern JPL.
