A spacecraft engineer with experience on half a dozen space missions and is currently a second-round candidate for the Mars One project, which aims to send human settlers to the red planet starting around 2023.

Michael and Andrew talk about why people want to go to Mars, why it's a one way trip, what life would be like there and more!
Acknowledged by peers and press alike as one of the premier political satirists in the country, Will Durst has patched together a comedy quilt of a career, weaving together columns, books, radio and television commentaries, acting, voice overs and most especially, stand up comedy, into a hilarious patchwork of outraged and outrageous common sense. His abiding motto is “You can’t make stuff up like this." The New York Times calls him "possibly the best political comic in the country."
While at the terrace Michael and Durst chat about politics, aging and more!
