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.

On this week's episode of our other radio show, The Paracast: Gene and guest co-host Goggs Mackay present Dr. John Brandenburg to help sort out all sorts of amazing Martian mysteries in light of NASA revelations about the presence of running water on Mars and new understandings of the red planet's atmosphere.

...
Dr. Brandenburg is author of "Death on Mars: The Discovery of a Planetary Nuclear Massacre," which describes a now-dead Martian civilization and the shocking reason for its demise: an ancient planetary-scale nuclear massacre leaving isotopic traces of vast explosions that endure to our present age. He works as a veteran plasma physicist and Senior Propulsion Scientist at Orbital Technologies Corporation in Madison, Wisconsin.

Mon/Tues Aug 3/4 - John E. Brandenburg

John E. Brandenburg is a theoretical plasma physicist who was born in Rochester Minnesota, and grew up in Medford Oregon. He obtained his BA in Physics, with a Mathematics minor, from Southern Oregon University in 1975 and obtained his MS in 1977 and PhD in Plasma Physics both from University of California at Davis in 1981. He presently is working as a consultant at Morningstar Applied Physics LLC and a part-time instructor of Astronomy, Physics and Mathematics Madison College and other learning institutions in Madison Wisconsin.
Before this, he worked at Orbital Technologies in Madison Wisconsin, as Senior Propulsion Scientist, working on space plasma technologies, nuclear fusion, and advanced space propulsion. He is the principle inventor of the MET (Microwave Electro-Thermal) plasma thruster using water propellant for space propulsion. He has previously worked on SDI, the Clementine Mission to the Moon, Rocket Plume-Regolith Interactions on the Moon and Mars, Vortex theory of Rocket engine design, combined Sakharov-Kaluza-Klein theory of Field Unification for purposes of space propulsion and Mars science. He also performed an architecture study for a Human Mars Mission using solar electric propulsion.
Before coming to ORBITEC he was teaching and performing research at the Florida Space Institute of the University of Central Florida, at Aerospace Corporation in Chantilly Va., and earlier at Research Support Instruments (RSI) in Lanham Maryland. During the Reagan years he worked at Mission Research Corporation and Sandia National Laboratories on SDI and plasmas for controlled fusion and directed energy weapons.
He has authored the popular science books "Death on Mars," (2014) "Life and Death on Mars" (2010), "Beyond Einstein's Unified Field" (2011) and "Dead Mars, Dying Earth" (1999) with Monica Rix Paxson, which won the Ben Franklin Silver Medal award for best Science/Environmental book in 2001. He has written two science fiction novels under the pen name "Victor Norgarde": "Morningstar Pass, The collapse of the UFO Coverup" and "Asteroid 20-2012 Sepulveda"
He is the recipient of the William Gerald Award in 2006 from the Harlem Children Society for his work with underprivileged students, and the 2012 Devi Bhargava Award at Madison College for working with students with disabilities.
