This is another of my favorite shows archived from “La Ventana Americana”, and is the second part of a two-hour special after “Space Exploration (part 1)”.
The guests experts were two scientists with wide experience in the world of space exploration. They had been studying the possibility to a manned expedition to planet Mars.
Our guests were Dr. Marcelo Vazquez and Dr. Pascal Lee.
Marcelo Vazquez is a medical doctor with a specialization in space medicine. He is an expert studying the effect of solar gamma radiation from outside the atmosphere in humans. He is part of Mars Institute, and consultant for Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), also a consultant with NASA, among others. Today he is working at Loma Linda University, in California, researching the effects of solar gamma radiation in the treatment of patients with cancer. At the same time, he is also a consultant for the Chinese space program.
Dr. Pascal Lee,is a co-founder of Mars Institute. He is part of SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence), he also works for NASA and comes to our program to talk about his new project as an educational books author. He wrote a book for kids 9 to 12 years old called “Mission Mars” published by Scholastic.
