 Robert Zubrin Biography

Dr. Robert Zubrin is a world-renowned engineer, best-selling author and a leading space exploration authority. He is a former senior engineer for Lockheed Martin, and the founder and president of Pioneer Astronautics, a hands-on research and development company dedicated to inventing and proving new technologies to advance humanity’s reach into space and to improve life on Earth.

Zubrin has lended his first-class engineering skills and insight into improving human-kind to help solve America’s oil dependency problem. In his latest book, Energy Victory: Winning the War on Terror by Breaking Free of Oil, Zubrin presents a bold plan for breaking the economic stranglehold that the OPEC oil cartel has on our country and the world. Zubrin presents persuasive evidence that our decades-long relationship with OPEC has resulted in the looting of our economy, the corruption of our political system, and now the funding and protection of terrorist regimes and movements that are committed to our destruction. Energy Victory offers an exciting vision for a dynamic, new energy policy, which will go a long way toward safeguarding homeland security in the future and provide solutions for global warming and Third World development

In August of 1998, Zubrin founded the International Mars Society, an organization made up of individuals from every walk of life, all dedicated to the concept of manned missions to and the settlement of Mars. His book, Entering Space: Creating a Space Faring Civilization was published at the end of 1999 by Penguin Putnam and received wonderful reviews.

Zubrin is the author of many critically acclaimed nonfiction books, including The Case for Mars, Entering Space, Mars on Earth; the science fiction novels The Holy Land and First Landing; and articles in Scientific American, The New Atlantis, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Mechanical Engineering, and The American Enterprise. He has appeared on major media including CNN, CSPAN, the BBC, The Discovery Channel, NBC, ABC, and NPR.

Dr. Robert Zubrin has a B.A. in Mathematics from the University of Rochester, a M.S. in Nuclear Engineering, a M.S. in Aeronautics and Astronautics, and a Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering, all from the University of Washington. He currently resides in Indian Hills, Colorado.

The Case for Space: How the Revolution in Spaceflight Opens Up a Future of Limitless Possibility

The Case for Space: How the Revolution in Spaceflight Opens Up a Future of Limitless Possibility

Speaking Topics
  • The Case for Space: The Revolution is at Hand

    Things have changed. The world’s government-led space efforts, begun so proudly in the eras of Sputnik and the Apollo Moon launches, stalled during the following four decades. The once proud Russian program virtually collapsed into a state of severe decay, and the American human spaceflight effort simply went round in circles for 45 years, enacting a spectacle of stagnation that could only induce pessimism in all those hoping for a human future in space. But now the ice has broken. In the midst of this decay, new forces have risen that are radically changing everything. Uniting the entrepreneurial genius of Silicon Valley with the hard-won technological expertise of the old aerospace industry, a new generation of space companies has been born whose upstart members are revolutionizing our prospects. Leading the way has been Elon Musk’s SpaceX, which started by showing that it could do what others had already done, but in one third the time and one tenth the cost, and which now has moved on to doing what no one else has ever done, including, most importantly, building rocket boosters than can be reused. This innovation promises to radically reduce spaceflight costs. The process of cost reduction won’t stop there, however, because Musk has competition from an alternative entrepreneurial effort, Blue Origin, founded by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, reportedly the second richest man in the world. As a result, the same competitive dynamic that turned airplane flight from an expensive curiosity to a central part of daily life has now been unleashed. Others will soon join the race. Provided we continue to foster these developments, spaceflight is going to become cheaper and cheaper – so much so that not merely exploratory expeditions, but actual human settlement of other planets in our solar system will soon become feasible. In this talk world-renowned astronautical engineer Robert Zubrin will examine the possibilities. Starting with a discussion of the present-day breakthroughs, we will take a deeper look at where it leads: to ultrafast global travel through suborbital space, to new industries on orbit, and to human settlement of the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, the outer solar system, and ultimately the stars. All these things are possible, and he will explain how to achieve them. Then he will look at what such mastery implies: what we will gain by undertaking this grand adventure, and what we would lose by failing to do so. There is immense knowledge to be gained in space, but also deadly hazards to be faced, which we need to control if we are to protect ourselves and all other life on Earth. The value of the challenge itself, both to stimulating the creative forces of society as a whole and particularly of our youth, will also be explored. There is also the question of the influence of an open frontier – or the lack thereof – on human freedom, and on the battle of ideas that can sustain it or defeat it. Finally, there is the question of the human future itself: Will we be limited to one world, with limited resources and limited prospects? Or will we become something far grander in space, time, diversity, and ultimate potential? A revolution is at hand that could open dramatic new possibilities for the human future. Let us seize the day.
