Last Show Recap

Mars & Space Exploration

Earthfiles investigative reporter Linda Moulton Howe presented interviews about oyster die-offs at an alarming rate in the northwestern US; children with past life recall; an alleged large pyramid and "sphinx" about 60 miles west of Mt. Denali in Alaska; and a recent report of house-shaking booms in Deltona, Florida given by a retired USAF aircraft crew chief that are apparently part of an ongoing contact with non-human consciousness. In the first hour, Dr. Gary Ridenour discussed the Zika virus and the recent death of rockstar Prince.

Mars & Space Exploration

Show Archive
Date: Monday - March 15, 2004
Host: George Noory
Guests: Robert Zubrin, Richard C. Hoagland

President of The Mars Society, Robert Zubrin, joined Richard Hoagland in a discussion about the new Space Initiative. Specifically, the two were critical of plans to cut funding to the Hubble Space Telescope, which Zubrin called "one of the greatest scientific instruments," of all time. A bill, House Resolution 550, has been introduced to save the Hubble program, and both guests urged contacting congressional representatives to push for support of it.

In the second half of the show, Zubrin laid out a plan for the terraforming of Mars, which he said could be accomplished in 50 years. The plan entails building factories to produce fluorocarbon gases which would increase global warming on the planet and raise the average temperature. Zubrin sees the colonization of Mars, not so much as a back-up plan for Earth, but rather as a creation of "a new branch of human society," that embraces spacefaring as a way of life.

In the first hour, Hoagland reacted to the recent Space.com article War of the Words. Calling it "a hit piece of political slander," Hoagland refuted the allegations about his career and credentials and has posted documentation on his website defending himself (see this email exchange and article titled NASA Running Scared).
