34 – From the Moon to Mars (feat. Laura Forczyk)

December 5, 2017

The US Vice President Mike Pence announced that the United States would be returning to the Moon. But for NASA, this is a change from the “Journey to Mars”. So what does this mean for human spaceflight, especially for the goal of getting people on the Red Planet? Space Consultant Laura Forczyk, founder of Astralytical, joins Jake to discuss the moving goal posts of the space community and what it means for Mars. Hopefully, we’ll get to the bottom of this ever-present debate.

We discuss the Moon and Mars

  • NASA’s switch from Mars to Moon, after Vice President Mike Pence’s announcement at the first National Space Council meeting
  • The response from space companies, like SpaceX and Blue Origin
