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

1. Monday, January 13, 2014, 2-3:30 PM PST (22-23:30 GMT)
and ED LEBOUTHILLIER come to discuss the Charles Pooley book which is now available, “Microlaunchers: Technology for a new Space Age.”



Charles Pooley
is self employed as a consultant and designer with 40 years experience in the fields of circuit design, servos, electrooptics. His background ranges from two years on an oceanographic research ship, involvement in startups, four patents, design of a sounding rocket.  Believing that the pathway to access to space requires developing the means to get there, he has for 30 years been studying the relevant technologies, including rocket propulsion, thermodynamics, and other areas bearing on the engineering of launcher systems.  For the past eight years he has been more narrowly focused on the strategy of small scale vehicles and spacecraft as the key to bypassing the problems encountered by startup ventures which hope to begin with “full size” vehicles. With the startup venture Microlaunchers, he is working to develop a small launcher system.

returns for space news updates and more. Visit his blog, www.behindtheblack.com.
Robert Zimmerman is a well known and respected space historian and author. He posts regularly at his website, http://behindtheblack.com, on space, science, and other matters relating to cultural and political issues. Mr. Zimmerman is also an award winning author. His most recent book, THE UNIVERSE IN A MIRROR: THE SAGA OF THE HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE AND THE VISIONARIES WHO BUILT IT (Princeton University Press) tells the poignant tale of the men and women behind the telescope, and how many had to sacrifice careers and family to get it built. It also describes in detail the importance of Hubble both scientifically and culturally. More than any other instrument sent into space, the Hubble Space Telescope reshaped the human perception of our place in the universe. Robert’s previous book, LEAVING EARTH: SPACE STATIONS, RIVAL SUPERPOWERS, AND THE QUEST FOR INTERPLANETARY TRAVEL, is a must read! It describes in detail the history of manned space flight, post Apollo. Thus, it includes a lot of information about the Soviet/Russian space program that is unknown to most Americans. In 2003 American Astronautical Society awarded LEAVING EARTH the Eugene Emme Award as that year’s the best space history for the general public. Mr. Zimmerman has also authored GENESIS, THE STORY OF APOLLO 8 (first published in 1998 and now available as an ebook from amazon.com and all other ebook distributors), telling the family and political tale behind the first human journey to another world, and THE CHRONOLOGICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF DISCOVERIES IN SPACE (published by Oryx Press, now ABC-CLIO, 2000), a detailed reference book describing what was accomplished on every space mission beginning in October 1957 with Sputnik and continuing through December 1999. His work is published regularly in such magazines as SCIENCE, SKY & TELESCOPE, ASTRONOMY, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, FORTUNE, AD ASTRA, AMERICAN HISTORY, STARDATE, and many other major magazines. In 2000 he was co-winner of the David N. Schramm Award, given by the High Energy Astrophysics Division of the American Astronomical Society for Science Journalism. He can be reached at zimmerman at nasw dot org.
