Leonard David, the senior writer for was the guest for this Space Show program. Mr. David shared his thoughts, perspectives, and research with us on many topics. The discussion included updates on Mars, Mars rovers, Mars planetary and astrobiology science, Hubble, the Space Shuttle, the new Nasa Administrator, Dr. Mike Griffin, and energy. Regarding energy, we talked about the need for effective government and space agency policy, far out technologies that may be useful to us, the politics of oil, and solar and lunar power and satellites. Mr. David also spoke about his research and coming article for interstellar travel and the important and challenging issues surrounding the militarization and weaponization of space with the current administration. He started out the interview discussing the up coming Small Sat conference in Logan, UT in August, the various small sat players and the launchers working to build new, cost effective launch vehicles. Many more topics were discussed with Leonard and he revealed his frustration with the pace of space development progress and the ongoing rhetoric without real action. This may very well be one of the best interviews ever with Leonard David. It was extended in time to a full two hours, and you will not want to miss it. If you want to email the guest, do so at
