John E. Brandenburg is a propulsion scientist/researcher at Orbital Technologies Corporation in Madison Wisconsin. He was before this, at Florida Space Institute at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, having come from The Aerospace Corporation, where one of his duties was as principle investigator of the MET (Microwave Electro-Thermal) propulsion project. He also performed an architecture study for a Human Mars Mission using solar electric propulsion. He also performed research on Fusion Propulsion and Kaluza-Klein theory of Field Unification for purposes of space propulsion. Before coming to Aerospace corporation Dr. Brandenburg was a researcher at Research Support Instruments (RSI) where he specialized in making controlled laboratory plasmas for uses ranging from Fusion research to the MET thruster. He also worked as an independent consultant on Space Missile Defense, Directed Energy Weapons, and space rocket plume phenomenology, and also at Mission Research Corporation and Sandia National Laboratories on plasmas for controlled fusion and similar topics. Doctor Brandenburg was born in Rouchester Minnesota but grew up in Medford Oregon. He obtained a BA in Physics from Southern Oregon University in Ashland Oregon, home of the Shakespearean Festival. He obtained his MS in Applied Science at University of California at Davis and his PhD in Theoretical Plasma Physics at the UC Davis extension campus at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore California. The Title of his Thesis was "A Theoretical Model of a Reversed Field Ion Layer Made of Monoenergetic Ions" and dealt with the magnetic confinement of plasmas for controlled nuclear fusion. Inspired by the Apollo missions to choose a career in Physics he has always been an avid fan of space exploration and science fiction. He is the author the "Dead Mars, Dying Earth"(1999) with Monica Rix Paxson , which dealt with the problems of energy and global warming from a comparative planetary science ( Earth-Mars) perspective and has been published the USA, Great Britain, Germany and Japan. It was the winner of the Silver Medal in the Ben Franklin awards for books on science and environment. He has recently completed writing a science fiction novel "Morningstar Pass" dealing with the problems of initial contact between humanity and extraterrestrial intelligence and the development of the human race into a space-faring civilization. He has dedicated his career to problems of space, energy and national defense.

According to Dr John E Brandenburg, PhD, his analysis of recent Mars isotopic, gamma ray, and imaging data supports the hypothesis that perhaps two immense thermonuclear explosions occurred on Mars in the distant past and these explosions were targeted on sites of previously reported artifacts.

About Dr John Brandenburg: Doctor John E. Brandenburg, PhD is a plasma physicist at Orbital Technologies in Madison Wisconsin, working on space plasma technologies and space propulsion. He also performed research on the MET(Microwave Electro-Thermal) plasma thruster for space propulsion, Rocket Plume-Regolith Interactions on the Moon and Mars, Vortex theory of Rocket engine design, and Kaluza-Klein theory of Field Unification for purposes of space propulsion. He also performed an architecture study for a Human Mars Mission using solar electric propulsion. Before coming to ORBITEC he was performing research on air plasmas and plasma propulsion at Florida Space Institute. He is a pioneer in creating electrodeless atmospheric pressure plasmas in air using microwaves. Before this he was at The Aerospace Corporation, where one of his duties was as principle investigator of the MET propulsion project. Before coming to Aerospace corporation Dr. Brandenburg was a researcher at Research Support Instruments (RSI) where he specialized in making controlled laboratory plasmas for uses ranging from air plasmas for surface sterilization , Fusion research and the MET thruster. He also worked as an independent consultant on Space Missile Defense, Directed Energy Weapons, and space rocket plume phenomenology, and also at Mission Research Corporation and Sandia National Laboratories on plasmas for controlled fusion and similar topics.

Guest: Dr. John Brandenburg

Guest: Dr. John Brandenburg. Topics: Physics, cosmology, Unified Field Theory, Higgs-Boson.
...
We welcomed back Dr. John Brandenburg for an interesting science fiction and physics discussion for 2 hours and 7 minutes. We started our first segment with Dr. Brandenburg talking about the recent meteor impact on the Moon, parallels with the Shoemaker-Levy comet impact on Jupiter, and even referencing the Clementine Mission. We then moved into John's science fiction writing which he usually does under the name of Victor Norgarde. However, his latest book project, a book that goes into the metaphysical realms and is titled "The Cosmic Jesus," he uses his real name. Based on his discussion of the book with us, I hope to feature it with John on future Space Show program. Dr. Brandenburg then introduced us to the theories of Richard Feynman and John Wheeler and the impact of their work today.
...
In our second segment, Dr. Brandenburg talked about his GEM Tetra Unification Theory and the Higgs-Boson particle. In this discussion, our guest did use a moderately heavy physics language citing several theories and the works of others such as Kaluza-Klein theory so stay with us as we talked about hidden dimensions, quantum mechanics, force fields, LENR & cold fusion, Mach's Principle and much more. John speculated on the Higgs being able to help us figure out how to reduce the mass of a spaceship so it could accelerate to the speed of light.
...
You guess where Dr. Brandenburg placed himself in terms of the three classification descriptors. For most of the rest of the discussion, Dr. Brandenburg talked about physics, what it takes to get theories and ideas into the academic discussion and at some point accepted or at least seriously considered. Another listener emailed him for conference suggestions since John said that it was important to go to conferences, publish, present, etc. In Dr. Brandenburg's closing remarks, he left us with a challenging question to consider! Please post your comments/questions on The Space Show blog above. You can email Dr. Brandenburg through me at drspace@thespaceshow.com.
