JONATHAN VOS POST: 210 NEW WAYS TO SPACE

How do you get into space, where do you go, and what do you do there? I have worked all my professional life to answer these questions in original ways, and here's what leading space activists say: "Whereas Jonathan V. Post has imagination and vitality and intelligence in excess, it is with great pleasure that I recommend him for a Director-at-Large position with the 1994 National Space Society Board. I can think of no one livelier or brighter to add to the composition of that Board. I have known him for many years and his creative bent is truly amazing." -- Ray Bradbury "I'm impressed by your range of activities, and am sure you will be a valuable asset to the National Space Society." -- Arthur C. Clarke, Chancellor: International Space University "I fully endorse your candidacy for the NSS board, and you may feel free to use my name in your campaign. If there is any way in which I can help you, do not hesitate to call on me." -- Ben Bova, former Chairman NSS Board of Directors


How do you get into space? You could ride a conventional expendable rocket, such as a Titan-34D: I've audited the software to guide and control that booster from an IUS payload [1]. You could be a passenger in a Space Shuttle: I analyzed the software that decides when it's safe to launch a Shuttle [2], how to make that launch hundreds of millions of dollars cheaper by onboard testing and check-out [3-5] and how to intelligently predict that Shuttle systems might malfunction [6] with Expert Systems and Neural Networks.

You could take a Shuttle-Derived Vehicle, such as a manned version of the Shuttle-C [10], or the SDV design I worked on [7,11]; an unpiloted robotic version of the existing Space Shuttle [8,9]; or a new booster, the Advanced Launch System, such as the proposal where I worked within the Management Gold Team [12]. You might prefer to fly on a reusable Single-Stage-To-Orbit: I worked on Rockwell's proposal [13] for that vehicle (now called DC-X). More exotically, you might be propelled into space by the energy of a huge ground-based laser (Arthur Kantrowitz's invention), as I formally proposed to Edward Teller, Jordin Kare, and the Department of Energy [14]; or be boosted by Earth's magnetic field pushing against a superconducting loop of cable: the Magnetic Sail, qualitatively invented by me [15] and later quantified by NSS Board of Directors member Dr. Robert Zubrin and Dr. Dana Andrews [16].

Once in orbit, you might live in a Space Station [17] or an O'Neill Colony [18-21]; determine our location in the universe [22,137]; communicate with Earth [23,119]; rendezvous with other spacecraft [24] which might have been launched from a rocket-carrying airplane [25]; be boosted into cislunar or interplanetary trajectory by an assembly of Inertial Upper Stages [1], a Lunar/Mars Propulsion Module [26], a magnetic sail propelled by the Solar Wind [15,16], or as I first proposed: in a spaceship made of frozen hydrogen which consumes its own structure as fuel [27,31-36].

What do you do when you get into space? You might work on space-based charged particle beam weapons as I described a decade before SDI [37]; relay solar energy to Earth [38-39]; rescue astronauts in distress [40]; repair a malfunctioning satellite [41]; or observe the Earth and cosmos with exotic sensors [42][42-43]. Where do you go in space? I have helped bring us closer to destinations from Mercury through Pluto and beyond. If the planet Mercury has ice at its poles, you might know that because of my invention of artificial meteorite spectroscopy [50] , and use Mars-mission spacecraft go to Mercury, secure that you can use that ice to provide fuel for a return flight [50-52], or to detect neutrinos from the Sun, Earth, or (hypothetical) Extraterrestrials [42,43,50-54]. You might travel far by Solar Sail, pushed by the pressure of sunlight [55-57]; you might use magnetoencephalography to "read your mind" before you could consciously speak commands or manipulate the telerobotic controls of a Solar Sail [58-60], or you might supervise a team of robots on the Moon or Mars [61][61-64]. Space travel might give you a "New Age Religious Experience" [66-70].


You might be endangered by "RedPeace" terrorists on the way to Mars [77], mine the Martian moons Phobos and Deimos [73], survive on Mars after Earth blows itself up [71,72], or turn the Martian polar caps into neutrino telescopes [51,52]. You might mine the asteroids and comets for valuable resources [59,60], or fly to the outer planets as I helped the Galileo Jupiter-probe to do when I worked at JPL [74-76], or go on to Uranus and the Uranian moon Miranda which I helped to photograph through Voyager 2 when I was Mission Planning Engineer [79-83]. Make sure you don't biologically contaminate Uranus, Neptune, or their moons according to my NASA calculations [84]. And, if you dare, ski the methane snows of Pluto [85]. You might go on beyond Pluto to mine the Oort Cloud [65,86]. You might explore the Kuiper Belt, between Pluto and the Oort Cloud [87]. You might use 21st Century propulsion techniques [88], such as Antimatter [89], or head for other solar systems by Magnetic Sail [15,16], Solar Sail [55-57], Fusion-drive [90-92], or Hydrogen Ice [27,31-36]. You might use the ultimate power supply and propulsion techniques available from Black Holes [44-48]. Or you might outlive the Earth, the Sun, and solid matter itself to achieve human destiny at the end of time [93], perhaps having first achieved immortality through Nanotechnology as first described (before K. Eric Drexler) in my Ph.D. thesis [97-109]. Or maybe you'd rather just read about it in Hypertext, as first co-implemented by me when I worked for Hypertext's inventor Theodor Nelson [110-113] and later applied to Shuttle cockpits [114]; or hear about it in avant garde opera [115].


How do you tell if someone has "the right stuff" to get you into space, and give you something worth doing there? Just look for someone like me who's spent his adult life doing it for NASA, ESA [130], corporations, activist groups [5,33,49,83,86,91,92,116-128,159,160,173], and universities -- and whose imagination probes beyond the real into Science Fiction written with other experts who've dedicated their lives to Space Travel [129-167]. Join with NSS International Chapters Coordinator Kirby Ikin and other NSS activists who believe that my experience in the past, present, and future space program amplified my experience as 2-term member of the O.A.S.I.S. Board of Directors, editor of the O.A.S.I.S. Odyssey, Los Angeles leader of the CRAF/Cassini Pro-Space Rally, and Ad Astra author to advance the best interests of the world's most dynamic space activists' organization. Take advantage of my political experience as elected member of the Amherst Massachusetts Town Meeting (1977), 5-term member of the Steering Committee of the National Writers Union (L.A. Local) and elected National Writers Union Delegate, elected member of the Altadena Town Council, sponsor of the Friends of George Brown (Chairman, Space Science and Technology committee of Congress), and Space Advisor to the National Presidential Campaign of Governor Jerry Brown. Use your imagination, and acknowledge along with 4 consecutive NASA Administrators who have issued my awards, letters of commendation, or citations: Thomas Paine, James C. Fletcher, Richard H. Truly, and Daniel S. Goldin [168]; Nobel laureate Richard P. Feynman [115,147]; and author/space activists Robert Heinlein [89], Isaac Asimov [133], Ben Bova [160], Ray Bradbury [55,71], Arthur C. Clarke [55,56]; and millions in TV [175-182] and radio [116,163,183-209] audiences. I have helped tremendously to fulfill the NSS dream -- and take us all into Space someday!
