The Space Show, hosted by David Livingston under www.TheSpaceShow.com, will have the following guests this week:

1. Monday, August 24, 2009, 2-3:30 PM PDT (21-22:30 GMT)
Greg Meholic
returns to discuss advanced propulsion and The Tri-Space Model of the Universe: Dark Matter, Faster-than-Light Travel and The Theory of Everything.  Mr. Greg Meholic is member of the AIAA Nuclear and Future Flight Propulsion Technical Committee, a regular chair of the Future Flight sessions at the Joint Propulsion Conferences, and has published a number of papers about faster-than-light travel, the construct of space-time, and the grand unified theory. He currently supports space launch vehicle concept development and propulsion system studies for the US Government. During the past seven years, Greg has worked on upper-stage cryogenic rocket engine performance and design assessments for the US government space launch program as well as launch vehicle operational requirements, launch systems and designs, and other advanced propulsion projects. Mr. Meholic was previously employed at General Electric Aircraft Engines where he worked in gas turbine performance and preliminary design, component life analysis, mechanical design and advanced concept development. His work on the pulse detonation engine program there allowed him to develop four patents on PDE valve concepts and applications. Mr. Meholic is also a lecturer at both UCLA and Loyola-Marymount University on Propulsion Systems for both aircraft and spacecraft.



2. Tuesday, August 25, 2009, 7-8:30 PM PDT (August 26, 2-3:30 GMT)
.  All topics are welcome for discussion.  The Space Show again invites those of you wanting to be a guest on The Space Show to call in and tell them what you want to talk about and why.

3. Friday, August 28, 2009, 9:30-11:30 AM PDT (16:30-18:30 GMT)
Dr. Leik Myrabo
returns to discuss his new book, “Lightcraft Flight Handbook LTI-20 published by Apogee Books.  Leik N. Myrabo received his B.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering from Iowa State University in 1968, and attained his Ph.D. in Engineering Physics from the University of California at San Diego in 1976.  Thereafter, he spent a total of seven years at Physical Sciences, Inc., W.J. Schafer Associates, and the BDM Corporation, pursuing “Star Wars” research as a staff scientist and consultant on directed energy applications, aerospace systems, space prime power, and advanced propulsion. He joined the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute faculty in 1983.  For the past three decades, Myrabo’s burning desire has been to create and demonstrate viable concepts for non-chemical propulsion of future flight vehicles for an era beyond oil.

4. Sunday, August 30, 2009, 12-1:30 PM PDT (19-20:30 GMT)
Dr. George C. Nield
serves as the Associate Administrator for Commercial Space Transportation at the FAA. He has over 30 years of aerospace experience with the Air Force, at NASA, and in private industry.  Dr. Nield came to the FAA from the Orbital Sciences Corporation, where he served as Senior Scientist for the Advanced Programs Group. His previous assignments include working as an Astronautical Engineer at the Space and Missile Systems Organization, a Flight Test Engineer at the Air Force Flight Test Center, and an Assistant Professor and Research Director at the USAF Academy.  He was the Manager of the Flight Integration Office for the Space Shuttle Program at the NASA Johnson Space Center, and later worked on both the Shuttle/Mir Program and the International Space Station Program. A graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, he holds an M.S. and Ph.D. in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Stanford University, and an MBA from George Washington University.  He is also a Flight Test Engineering graduate of the USAF Test Pilot School.  Dr. Nield is a registered Professional Engineer and a Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
