The Mars society should help Elon Musk go to mars in 2018 . Dr. Zubrin can do this;
Dr. Zubrin, this a good opportunity for you and the world.
Yeah, that’s right time.
Good interview, but when was this recorded? The Martian came out a solid year ago.
Thanks for listening! This episode was recorded in September 2015, but it had such great content (and was 99% still timely, we posted it). Dr. Zubrin will have a new interview soon.
