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

It’s a pleasure to announce that I’m returning to The Space Show (www.thespaceshow.com) 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, www.davidlivingston.com.

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!

AIAA — Analyst Predicts New Space Age Coming Soon

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) in their Daily Launch for 6/28/11 comments that:

In an op-ed for Space News (6/28, Subscription Publication), Bruce Cordell, co-founder of 21stCenturyWaves.com, writes that examining long-term trends, the cancelation of the Constellation program is “merely a speed bump on the road to near-term international commercial and scientific development of Earth-Moon space and even humans to Mars.” Cordell argues it is not just the availability of money that drives programs like Apollo to fruition but also by a confluence with an “exuberant” public whose “expanded worldviews made the Apollo program seem not only intriguing but almost irresistible – as reflected in 1960s opinion polls.” By looking at trends over the past 200 years with other big exploration projects, Cordell predicts that “a new international Space Age…should gain momentum by 2015.”

Thanks to AIAA for their note.
The full Space News op-ed is available HERE.

This forecast for a near-term, New Space Age is unusual because it’s based on a long-term, empirical approach that has major implications for business, technology, and education:

This glimpse of the future is not based on hope or optimism, but on long-term trends in the economy, technology and geopolitics that point to a near-term reignition of President John F. Kennedy’s 50-year-old vision of human exploration of the Moon and planets.

The “Maslow Window” model provides:
1) a framework for long- and near-term planning, including specific forecast models,
2) a marketing theme — space exploration is the most recent manifestation of the great explorations back to Lewis and Clark; and they are always linked with major economic booms and transformative technology development,
and
3) a morale boost — timing is based on patterns observed over the last 200+ years.
