Tonight, MPR will feature the last part of our interview with Dr. Ramses Ramirez, a research associate at the Carl Sagan Institute of Cornell University. In a wide ranging and fascinating interview, Dr. Ramirez, a planetary scientist and astrobiologist, discussed habitable zones (where Earth resides) around stars, including our sun; the possibility of discovering life on Mars, either present or past; as well as life on exo-solar planets (planets orbiting other stars).

Episode VIII

Posted in Uncategorized, science, science fiction, space flight, Mars, literature by dougturnbull on September 24th, 2013

Tonight we will present some updates in space science current events, the second installment of A Wondrous Gift and an interview with our special guest, Joaquin De La Torre, space entrepreneur and CEO of Pan American Airways System.

Correction: Last week’s Mars Pirate Radio Interview with Susan Holden Martin of The Mars Society was actually conducted on May 7th. During that interview, she stated that a one year mission at the Flashline Mars Arctic Research Station was still in the deep planning stage. Between the time of the interview and the actual podcast on May 18th, it was formally decided by The Mars Society that the mission is now out of the planning stage and in the “will happen” stage. For more information, go to the Mars Society website.

Music was composed by Bernard Herrmann for Fahrenheit 451, copyright 1966 by Universal Pictures and by Jerry Goldsmith for Chinatown, copyright 1974 by Paramount Pictures. Science updates are courtesy of Space.com.
