In Episode 21, our panel expressed heavy skepticism about the Mars One plans to settle Mars. Shortly afterward, Ryan MacDonald e-mailed and took issue with some of things said on that Episode, so we invited him and his colleagues Dianne McGrath and Oscar Mathews to join us and explain the Mars One enterprise from their perspective. Paul Carr is joined by those three Mars One astronaut candidates, and panelists Adam "Synergy" Smith, Antonio Paris, David Grigg, and Patrick Festa.
We had a few technical glitches, as we suppose is inevitable when trying to connect 8 people on 3 continents, but I think you'll agree it's a good conversation about one way humanity might become a multi-planet civilization.
