We welcomed both Dan Freyer and Tabor MacCallum to discuss the upcoming Space Tech Expo to be held in Long Beach, CA from April 1-3, plus Tabor told us about World View near space balloon rides and their work on HSF missions to Mars.  There was only one segment for this one hour program.  We started with Dan who gave us an overview of the Space Tech Expo (www.spacetechexpo.com).  He talked about the free program, the paid program, the exhibits, and the B2B focus of the conference.  We went through the paid Expo agenda which you can find at http://www.spacetechexpo.com/conference/conference-program-2014.  Dan stressed the business 2 business focus of the expo, talked about the mix of aerospace, defense, military, satellite, launch vehicle companies and executives that will be attending. We also talked about the exhibitors and their ability to tell attendees about their products and services.  Taber jumped in to talk about the World View near space balloon rides which they will be talking about at their booth #4042.  Dan also went over the conference logistics and fielded several questions asking about NewSpace representation at the expo, the possibility for students & interviews, networking opportunities, lunches with the paid program, plus more.  Later in the segment, Tabor received several email questions about his work on the life support systems for human spaceflight missions to Mars.  He talked about going to Mars, Inspiration Mars, Mars One and a stepping stone approach that might include going to an asteroid and the moons of Mars.  We discussed the possible need to first go to the Moon to learn how to go to Mars.  We talked about closed loop systems, radiation & microgravity issues, plus the complexity of landing large payloads on Mars. We concluded our hour discussion by reviewing the Expo logistics, registration on their website, and the strong business focus for this conference.
