Bruce Returns to “The Space Show” on January 10, 2012

It’s a pleasure to announce that I’m returning to The Space Show ( global internet live radio program, on the evening of Tuesday, January 10, 2012, from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm Pacific time.

You can listen to my October appearance on The Space Show by clicking HERE.

Thanks to Dr. David Livingston, the show’s host, for inviting me again. You can learn about him by visiting his personal website,

Extending from Elysium to the north, the Phlegra Montes — in this recent ESA Mars Express image — appear to be the site of significant ground ice of potentially great interest to future thirsty Mars astronauts.

We’ll explore the state of Mars science and the prospects for human spaceflight to Mars by the 2020s, including: 1) the spectacular, ongoing ESA Mars Express mission (see image), 2) NASA’s recently launched car-size Curiosity Rover, 3) the recently concluded Mars-500 simulated manned mars mission by the Russian Academy of Sciences, and 4) the apparently failed attempt to send Phobos-Grunt to Mars on the first-ever Phobos sample return mission. Phobos-Grunt may enter Earth’s atmsophere near the date of the show.

We’ll also focus on my annual list of the top 10 Space Trends for 2012. Last year’s forecasts are here: “State of the Wave: 10 Space Trends for 2011”. All this, plus my new article to appear soon in Ad Astra of the National Space Society, on the new Apollo-level international Space Age that’s expected to begin dominating global headlines by mid-decade!

Be sure to mark your calendars!
