John Batchelor and I welcomed back Doug Messier of Parabolic Arc to discuss the cost overruns regarding the Mars Sample Return mission per the GAO report just issued.  Doug discussed the cause of the higher expense plus we explored possible solutions.  SLS, Starship and even comparisons to the financial situation that was the case for JWST were made.

Please post your comments/questions for this discussion on our blog for this show.

You can email Mr. Batchelor or Doug Messier through me at drspace@thespaceshow.com. Doug can be reached through his www.parabolicarc.com site.
