During our 11 minute plus discussion with Dr. Zubrin, we talked about the Inspiration Mars proposed human spaceflight mission and the previous Athena Project Bob proposed in the mid-1990’s. Bob talked about the orbital dynamics, cosmic radiation, microgravity, possible NASA mission support, and more. Bob also spoke about the availability of hardware for the Inspiration Mars mission but the need for a new thermal protection system.
