Science writer Rod Pyle talks about his two new books, Interplanetary Robots and Space 2.0, where the ideas came from and the research that was involved. We talk about the science and technology gaps we’re still working through, and ultimately how to gather as much data as possible to be as prepared as possible to send humans farther away as safely as possible. Mars, here we come!
There’s also some discussion about where the private industry’s space projects may lead, and the smaller stuff being engineered, like a 3D printer that works in zero-G.
