Re: Ask Robert Zubrin *Official Thread*

Jburk, I would hope that Dave would create a few of these for topic discussion as we do have resources for some already here that can answer a few of them....

Mission Status: (All are fine)

Sol Activity Summary: We worked in our projects and additionally we started organizing and cleaning. All together launched the balloon and for some minutes all was fine. Now, they lost the capsule and the balloon because the rope broke)

Re: Ask Robert Zubrin *Official Thread*

jburk - I'm on it
SpaceNut - Pertinent questions-for-action, versus no answers from Staff, because Dr. Zubrin is the Alpha.
RobertDyck - That Link alone says more than the facebook equivalent of space camp prattle.

Will be my pleasure to put-on-Topic these subjects.
Though, I see them having more use when put to action.

Jeepers... I was just getting warmed up  lol

Re: Ask Robert Zubrin *Official Thread*

Tier 1 requires no funds and as RobertDyck post indicates that we might be quite pluged in for the answers that you are seeking with the questions.
Tier 2 can only be identified from conversational check and discussion as to possible answers. This may require some funds from Mars Society to make happen but are with the budgetary capability of the organization.
Tier 3 is answered only after going through the process to identify what we can do as other with a more capable funding means must execute the response that we seek answers for. Then again some of the these questions are active by these other better funded organizations and while they have foot the cost we can collectively review the results to formulate a sub set of questions that have not been answered and it is this process that results in a new tier 1 or 2 work on the original question to start aknew.

Re: Ask Robert Zubrin *Official Thread*

If we can stay "on mission" here.
This is the "Ask Dr. Zubrin 'Official Thread'"

No one speaks for Dr. Robert Zubrin. That would be derisive.
He is "the Alpha" of the organization

This input is a series of questions asked by anyone.
Like: the public or, high end aerospace moguls.

I could've easily compiled a prioritized list to James Burk.
As a matter of fact, I already have.

And James said" "So keep the questions coming!"

"Anyone" could ask these questions. And, that 'anyone' might be
the person who has 10 million dollars to contribute.

Re: Ask Robert Zubrin *Official Thread*

What TMS mars gravity level experiments and interaction to long term human health are ongoing?

What coronal mass ejection project systems are being worked on for the outgoing or return trip protection?
