In honor of NASA’s launch of a shuttle to go up and fix the Hubble Telescope, this Conversation With David Lewis is about living in space – sort of. David sits down with author, aerospace engineer, and Mars advocate Robert Zubrin to chat about Zubrin’s new book How to Live on Mars: A Trusty Guidebook to Surviving and Thriving on the Red Planet. The book is ostensibly set in the year 2071, after Mars has been colonized, and provides both scientific and fanciful advice for living on Mars. David’s conversation with Zubrin centers, however, more on the here and now and what is being done to actually get a man on Mars.
