Add this to another station David Vivancos, Friday, 3-10-17 (85.34MB; download) -- We welcomed David Vivancos back to the show to discuss Artificial Intelligence (AI), especially for the space industry. During our 93 minute two segment program, Mr. Vivancos took us through a short history of AI into modern uses for the technology. In addition, we got a good look at a probable scenario for our future with AI. Some of the topics discussed included the AI history 101, the level of maturity of the industry at this time, opportunities ahead plus significant challenges for AI. We looked at applications for space access, space hardware and manufacturing, life support, exploration for both robotics and in assisting humans, plus the issues ahead for AI and employment problems. David talked about the three stages of AI development and as you will hear, we are in two of them but have not yet entered the stage when the machines are smarter than us. David talked about and stressed the importance of key algorithm development. In fact, toward the end of the program, he said that a S. Korean company had as a fully functioning with rights algorithm as a member of the Board of Directors of the company!

Add this to another station The John Batchelor Show Hotel Mars, Wednesday, 3-8-17 (18.49MB; download) -- John Batchelor and I welcomed Dr. Philip Lubin from the University of California at Santa Barbara physics department to discuss his work with NASA and Breakthrough regarding interstellar flight. Make sure to visit Dr. Lubin's website, http://deepspace.ucsb.edu. Watch the interstellar video and use the links to learn more about his interstellar phased laser array propulsion plus the programs in place to develop interstellar flight. During our first segment of this double segment Hotel Mars program, Dr. Lubin talked about the need for a radically different propulsion system for interstellar flight. He talked about the Starlight project (see website) for using light as the propellant exhaust by shining off a reflector at the speed of light. He talked about using phased laser arrays and directed energy beams to push the spacecraft toward its destination, say Proxima B, at initial speed goals of 20-30% the speed of light. He also talked about using wafer like spacecraft which he fully described for us. Dr. Lubin talked about the exponential growth in photonics which makes this technology doable, explaining how the directed energy beams and arrays would work. He talked about timelines for development and testing which would be long given we have no such laser available today. They need a grand core laser but he said we have the components to work with today using multi-core technology which he explained in detail. In the second segment, Dr. Lubin talked about being able to send thousands of wafer like probes to the destination from either Earth, a mother ship in orbit, or even from the lunar surface. He described the wafer technology and said they could also propel something bigger such as a cubesat or eventually a human spacecraft. He talked about the requirements that would be needed to propel something as large with a huge mass would be the case with a human spacecraft. John and I asked him about using this technology for going to Mars so Dr. Lubin briefly touched on what it would mean for travel times to Mars as compared to using chemical rockets. Near the end, I asked our guest about objects flying through the directed energy beam such as birds, aircraft, etc. Dr. Lubin said they would not be able to operate the array at times of atmospheric disturbances or issues such as birds and planes and that would be part of the technology needing to be developed. You can email Mr. Batchelor or Dr. Lubin through me. Dr. Lubin can also be reached through his website above and UCSB faculty member website.
