Will be talking to Donald Jacques, author of "The Homestead Project, 12 Steps to a Permanent Lunar Settlement".

Whether looking at earth orbit, the moon, or mars, humanity will someday settle space.  In this volume, I take a minimalist approach, much like those of the early colonists to america; and the intrepid travelers who undertook the westward migration of the United States in the 1860's.  Asserting that colonists to space will face many of the same constrictions in weight, and technology, this handbook builds a foundation for survival in almost any hostile, planetary environment.
