Les Johnson works for NASA in the Advanced Concepts Office at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. He’s also been a co-investigator on a Japanese space experiment and served as manager for the Space Science Programs and Projects Office, which included the In-Space Propulsion Technology Project and the Interstellar Propulsion Research Project. He was the Chief Scientist for the Pro-SEDS space experiment, twice received NASA’s Exceptional Achievement Medal, and holds three patents. He has an MS from Vanderbilt University and BS Transylvania University and a Space Business & Management certificate from the International Space University.
Join Les Johnson, Melissa and me on Monday, December 9, 2013 at 8 pm ET for an exciting discussion of solar sails and Les Johnson’s work at NASA.
Michaela Musilova is the crew scientist for the MarsCrew134 Analogue Astronaut Expedition, part of a team of highly trained scientist, researchers and filmmaker, for a Mars simulation at the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah, USA. Her primary interest is in extremophiles, organisms that live in extreme environments. Similar life could potentially be found on other planetary bodies, such as Mars and Jupiter’s moon Europa. Thus, they are very important for astrobiology - the study of life in the Universe. Michaela first came across extremophiles at University College London (UCL), where shencompleted an MSci Planetary Science degree with First Class Honours. Fueled by her interest for these extraordinary creatures, she wrote a proposal for her master’s project on this subject and received several scholarships from the university to complete it. Michaela was also able to study a wide variety of extreme organisms while studying at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) on a scholarship, as a competitively selected exchange student. Pursuing the engaging topic of extremophiles and its implications for life on Mars, she applied for and was awarded the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Furthermore, to better understand the habitats of extremophiles, she prepared a project aiming to simulate lunar and planetary surfaces. Michaela received a Nuffield Foundation grant for this study and it was made part of a joint NASA/ESA MoonLite project collaboration. For more experience in space exploration research, she volunteered to search for and help identify extra-solar planets as part of an extracurricular research project at the University of London Observatory. Michaela is currently working as a PhD research student at the University of Bristol.
The terrible teens-as they are sometimes called-when almost every child seems to be unruly or rebellious or just not as connected to life as we would hope. Most people chalk it up to social circles or home life or any number of different reasons. The reality is that “between the ages of 12 and 24, the brain changes in important, and oftentimes maddening, ways. [...] According to renowned neuropsychiatrist Daniel Siegel, however, if parents and teens can work together to form a deeper understanding of the brain science behind all the tumult, they will be able to turn conflict into connection and form a deeper understanding of one another.” On today’s episode of Changing Direction, Michele welcomes Dr. Dan Siegel to discuss his upcoming book, BRAINSTORM: THE POWER & PURPOSE OF THE TEENAGE BRAIN. Dr. Siegel will share new research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, and ways that you can better understand your teenagers brain function which can help make your relationship with your teenager “less lonely and distressing on both sides of the generational divide.”
Michele’s shows combine scientific research, cutting-edge guests and personal stories that highlight the challenges and successes of deliberately deciding to change the direction of your life. If you could use some inspiration, motivation, how-to strategy or just company along your own private journey, tune in for each episode's insights and suggestions guaranteed to help you move forward.

BIGFOOT RESEARCHERS' WORKSHOP #1 TODD NEISS: SPECIMEN OR NOT
GOALS OF WORKSHOP
Is specimen procurement necessary? Will a specimen benefit the species as a whole? Can a viable specimen be obtained without a body? Will DNA suffice? Experiment Results To Be Discussed By Guest Research Correspondents:
Chose to advocate for or against the killing of a specimen for species recognition. Find record of cryptids discovered and acknowledged by virtue of proof with &/or without a body.
Ashley Dale is reading a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Bristol, He is the Crew Commander for the MarsCrew134 Analogue AStronaut Expedition in mid-January 2014, a two week Mars simulation in the remote high elevation desert of Utah, USA. Ash will command a team of six highly qualified group of scientists, researchers, physician and a professional filmmaker. Born in Namibia, South Africa, he spent the first few years of his life among the San Bushman immersed in the natural world – from the red sands of Kalahari Desert to the sub-tropical rainforests of the Amatola Mountains. Last year he developed radiation mitigation strategies for astronauts in deep-space with Inspiration Mars; advised senior NASA figures on strategies for protecting civilisation from the effects of a solar super-storm; research in future ‘green’ aircraft morphing wing technologies; and has conducted a solo-hiking expedition through the high-arctic archipelago of Svalbard, conducting biological research on floral pollinators.
This episode is being rebroadcast from Michele’s original radio show, “Your Life After Trauma.”
The first years of human life are more important than we ever realized. Listen in to this interview where Michele welcomed two guests, the first being Robin Karr-Morse. Robin discussed her book SCARED SICK: The Role of Childhood Trauma in Adult Disease, In her book, Robin Karr-Morse connects psychology, neurobiology, endocrinology, immunology, and genetics to demonstrate how chronic fear in infancy and early childhood— when we are most helpless—lies at the root of common diseases in adulthood. Plus author Terry Smith discussed his book Surviving Head Trauma, his personal account of life with TBI.
Michele Rosenthal is a popular keynote speaker, award-winning author and post-trauma coach. Her shows combine scientific research, cutting-edge guests and personal stories that highlight the challenges and successes of deliberately deciding to change the direction of your life.

Millions tuned in to see the first images beamed back to Earth the night that NASA's Curiosity landed on Mars. We live-streamed with baited breath as Felix Baumgartner set world records with his freefall from the edge of space, and marveled at the news of a successful 36-hour face transplant. From astronomy to medicine and every discipline in between, science gets us talking in record numbers. Whether you know more about Big Bang Theory the TV show than you do the cosmological model, you'll find thousands of answers on BlogTalkRadio from scientists, historians, authors, TV stars and more about popular topics like biopharmaceuticals, hydroponics, geology, solar energy, climate change, forensics, creationism vs. evolution, quantum physics, stem cell research, even UFO and Bigfoot sightings. You'll also find a full range of mental-health discussions on seasonal affective disorder, behavioral therapy, depression, codependency, schizophrenia, parapsychology and everything else that may confound, and astound, us.
