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

1. Monday, January 27, 2014, 2-3:30 PM PST (22-23:30 GMT)
returns to the program to discuss his book, “The Plundering of NASA”, his work for the Space Development Steering Committee and more.
R.D. (Rick) Boozer is an astrophysics researcher, public speaker, author of the book The Plundering of NASA and member of the Space Development Steering Committee.  He has a Master of Astronomy degree in astrophysics with high distinction and was awarded the University Medal “for outstanding academic achievement at the Master’s level”. 



Currently he is pursuing his PhD in astrophysics doing cutting-edge research into the physics of H II regions.  From childhood he has been an enthusiast for all things related to space travel.  He strives to popularize ideas which will insure that the United States be the number one spacefaring nation of the 21st Century and that will help further NASA towards exceeding its human spaceflight achievements of the Apollo era.  He has been the featured guest on such globally popular space issues shows as The Space Show with Dr. David Livingston, Spacevidcast and Mars Pirate Radio.  His public speaking engagements on space issues and articles for such online publications as Space.com and The Space Review have received popular acclaim.  He runs the science education websites Astro Maven Blog and Singularity Scientific as a public service.

2. Tuesday, January 28, 2014, 7-8:30 PM PST (January 29, 3-4:30 GMT)
of the Mars Society and the Youth Rover Program comes to the show.

of MIT comes to discuss her biosuit project. See www.bostonmagazine.com/news/blog/2013/12/10/mit-biosuit-system-dava-newman;  http://mvl.mit.edu/EVA/biosuit and http://esd.mit.edu/Faculty_Pages/newman/newman.htm.
Dr. Newman received her Ph.D. in Aerospace Biomedical Engineering from MIT. Her expertise is in multidisciplinary research that combines aerospace biomedical engineering, human-in-the-loop modeling, biomechanics, human interface technology, life sciences, systems analysis, design and policy. Dr. Newman’s research studies are carried out through space flight experiments, ground-based simulations, and mathematical modeling. Current research efforts include: advanced space suit design, dynamics and control of astronaut motion, mission analysis, and engineering systems design and policy analysis. She also has ongoing efforts in assistive techologies to augment human locomotion here on Earth.  Dr. Newman is the author of Interactive Aerospace Engineering and Design, an introductory engineering textbook with accompanying CD-ROM, published by McGraw-Hill, Inc. in 2002. She has also published more than 100 papers in journals and refereed conferences.  Dr. Newman received her BS degree from the University of Notre Dame and SM degrees in 1989 from MIT’s Technology and Policy Program and department of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

4. Sunday, February 2, 2014, 12-1:30 PM PST (20-21:30 GMT)
