Program Executive, NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts Program
They might be happy if one in ten of the projects they fund makes it in the real world…because that project just might change the world. We talk with Jay Falker, Program Executive for the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts Program about 12 crazy and not so crazy ideas that have just received early seed funding. They range from designing a spacecraft for hibernating astronauts to microbes that build you a home on Mars. All our regulars also join us for yet another installment of the travel show that takes you to the final frontier.
