Tomorrow, Sunday, March 2nd, Ken Davidian, NASA’s man at the Spaceward Games (and other Centennial Challenges), will be interviewed on Dr. David Livingston’s The Space Show. The show airs from 12:00 noon to 1:30pm Pacific Time. Here is a short blurb from the show’s promo:
Ken is now the NASA ESMD (Exploration Systems Mission Directorate) Commercial Development Policy Lead. Ken Davidian is a NASA contractor and the former Program Manager for Centennial Challenges at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. Within ESMD, Mr. Davidian is charged with conducting and promoting commercialization efforts related to the Vision for Space Exploration and the Global Exploration Strategy. Mr. Davidian is also the principal driver of Centennial Challenges, NASA’s prize program modeled on past and ongoing prize competitions.
Ken’s interviews are always high-energy and a joy to listen to. But “former Program Manager” for the Centennial Challenges? I’ll be listening to the show tomorrow to see if Ken is still going to be involved with them. I would be sad if he leaves - he’s great to work with and a lot of fun to be around.
As with all broadcasts on The Space Show, it will be saved as a podcast so you can catch it later on if you miss the show.
