After earning his PhD in financial economics at the University of Cambridge, UK, he embarked on a career path that led him to achieve capital market history in the Middle East. As a former Managing Director of Innovation and Development at the Dubai International Financial Exchange (Nasdaq Dubai), he led the launch of the Middle East’s first Structured Products platform with Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank, and Merrill Lynch. He has led the creation of the region’s first tradable bond and Sukuk indices with HSBC and the first fungible dual listing with a US exchange in the region. As a former Head of Islamic Finance for UBS, he was responsible for the Islamic operations of the Bank globally and across all business lines. He served wealth management, asset management, and the investment bank. He has also made unique contributions to financial valuation theory through the concept of Space Value of Money. He has proposed a unique solution to the global debt-crisis through the design of a unique instrument, i.e., Public Capitalization Notes, conceived as a monetization tool for money creation, transforming the equation of money invention from debt to wealth. He is a co-author of the Star Voyager Roadmap, September 2012, where he addresses the financing of interstellar travel. Until recently, he held the honorary position of Fellow at the Cambridge University Judge Business School, UK. He has numerous publications in a variety of outlets, he contributes regularly to policy debates in various media globally, and is a widely sought after speaker, economist, and consultant.

MARK BRAY
returns for Huntsville, SLS, and space policy updates.
Mark Bray currently works at MSFC in Huntsville, AL supporting the SLS program. He has 18 years of broad experience in the manned space flight programs at NASA including design, development, manufacturing, and operations. His education and training is in aerospace systems, and his expertise is in materials development and supplier qualification and certification for space transportation systems. His 14 years of work at Kennedy Space Center on the Orbiter Thermal Protection System included materials development, manufacturing, and operations. He was directly involved in the Columbia Accident Investigation as a systems engineer and worked on implementation of new requirements for return to flight. He moved to Huntsville AL to join the Constellation team and continues to work at MSFC as a contractor for NASA supporting the SLS program. He currently works in the Material Lab at MSFC working on standards development for materials used in extreme environments. His external pursuits include his own blog – http://braynstorms.com and entrepreneurial efforts in commercial space.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY EVERYONE! As a result of the interest show regarding artificial gravity on the last Open Lines show, Dr. Livingston is replaying the May 3, 2011 Space Show Classroom show that focused on artificial gravity. The guest of honor was Joe Carroll with his presentation material. Assisting Dr. Livingston in the interview was Dr. John Jurist and Dr. Jim Logan. When you see the program archived on the blog and the website, it is ready for your play.

Joe Carroll has worked since 1981 on advanced space transportation, mostly involving long tethers. He led the development of the Small Expendable Deployment System (SEDS), which demonstrated controlled deorbit without rockets in 1993 and also flew successfully on SEDS-2 in 1994, and TiPS in 1996. He also developed the deployer and wire for the Plasma Motor Generator (PMG), which demonstrated electrodynamic thrust in orbit.  He has also worked on unmanned and manned reentry vehicle concepts for NASA and several startups. His main current work is on electrodynamic tethers.

Dr. Jim Logan
held numerous positions in his twenty-year career at NASA including Chief of Flight Medicine and Chief of Medical Operations. He served as Mission Control Surgeon, Deputy Crew Surgeon or Crew Surgeon for twenty-five space shuttle missions and Project Manager for the Space Station Medical Facility, a telemedicine-based inflight medical delivery system for long duration missions. A founding board member of the American Telemedicine Association, Dr. Logan has consulted for as a variety of international and domestic healthcare organizations as well as the RAND Corporation and the Department of Defense. Board certified in Aerospace Medicine and recipient of NASA’s Distinguished Speakers Award, his lecturing activities have taken him to thirteen countries including the Peoples Republic of China.  Dr. Logan has been a Provost for International Space University in Strasbourg, France and has been featured on the Public Broadcast System (PBS), CanadaAM, The History Channel, National Geographic Channel and numerous radio talk shows. He recently completed a medical fellowship in Undersea & Hyperbaric Medicine at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, and now resides in Austin, Texas.

Dr. Jurist was simultaneously a physicist and a medical researcher before becoming involved in business.  He earned degrees in biophysics and nuclear medicine while he was at the UCLA School of Medicine with his dissertation work performed in the Division of Orthopedic Surgery.  Dr. Jurist has held faculty positions at the University of Wisconsin (Madison) in the Medical School’s Division of Orthopedic Surgery and in the Space Science and Engineering Center.  In the former, he studied human factors in space flight during Apollo and what was then called Apollo Applications and organized a metabolic bone disease laboratory for translational research.  In the latter during the early 1970s, he was team leader of the group that transmitted the first medical imaging over communications satellite links in a precursor to telemedicine. In the business arena, he created and ran a biomedical engineering consulting firm, was president of a successful outpatient surgical center, and founded a nonprofit medical research institute and ran it for four years.  Dr. Jurist is experienced in evaluating a business plan and in running a business.  He has applied his experience to the developing NewSpace industry as an investor in several small NewSpace corporations, supported R&D in others with corporate grants, and has partly funded academic propulsion, robotics, and biodynamics research groups at multiple universities.  Among other professional organizations, he is currently a Life Member of the International Association of Military Flight Surgeon Pilots, an Associate Fellow of the Aerospace Medical Association, an Emeritus member of the Orthopaedic Research Society, and a Fellow of the Gerontological Society.  His teaching and research activities revolve around his present positions of Adjunct Professor of Space Studies in the Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences at UND and Adjunct Professor of Biophysics and Aviation at Rocky Mountain College.

DR. JOHN JURIST
for this special program on artificial gravity. Prior to this show, I will upload important presentation material prepared for us by Dr. Jurist. You will want to review this material before air time if at all possible.
