Why go to space? And how? This week, two great guests talk about how our space program has changed since Apollo, whether we're going back to the moon or pressing on to Mars, and how we need to build the "Interstate for Space" to get to either of those rocks.
Our first guest is space journalist Miles O'Brien, for 16 years a space and aviation journalist with CNN, and currently chairman of the Education and Outreach Committee for NASA. He produces the podcast, This Week in Space.
We also have with us Commercial Spaceflight Federation President Bretton Alexander. Brett previously served under presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush as senior policy analyst for space issues, and was author of the 2004 Vision for Space Exploration (PDF), a White House plan to go back to the moon.
