During our 11 minute plus discussion, John, Pablo de Leon and I talked about the recent spacesuit helmet to flood with water and the associated risk for Astronaut Luca Parmitano.  We also discussed design and technical flaws with the American EVA spacesuit as it was not designed to be maintained and serviced in space but to be brought back to Earth using the shuttle.  In contrast, the Russian Orlan suit was designed for repairs and maintenance in space.  Pablo mentioned other differences as well with the American and Russian suits. For example, the Russian suit operates at a much higher pressure causing the user to tire more easily and quicker, plus the higher pressure limits some movements.  I asked Pablo about progress with the idea of the positive pressure suit but as you will hear, nothing on the near term. In fact, as our Hotel Mars segment ended, Pablo said we will be using existing suit technology and materials for at least ten more years before new materials, manufacturing processes, and concepts are able to being entering the market.

During our 11 minute plus discussion, John, Dr. Alan Hale, and I talked about the approaching comet ISON.  We talked about the brightness theories representing everything to that of as bright as a full moon to it fizzling out and not being very bright. We talked about the theory on this proposed by Dr. Ferrin, but Alan believed it was still way too early to make accurate predictions about this first time comet from the Ort Cloud.  Alan described the sublimation process, its path and flyby near Mars on or about August 20, then on to pass by Mercury and as a sungrazing comet,  finally be visible on Earth in late November 2013.  Dr. Hale was also asked to describe the tails of a comet, the dust tail and the ion tail.

During our 11 minute plus discussion, John, Mike Listener, and I talked about the legalities of asteroid mining, resource usage in space, potential issues such as profit sharing, treaty constraints, liability, and government regulation.  I believe Michael summed it up well when near the end of our segment, he said that this type of activity was still possibly 20 years away and during that time, the legal issues should be addressed and hopefully resolved.
