Celestial Citizen Ep. #203: More than a Moonage Daydream
On this week’s episode, we’re joined by Justin Cyrus and Dr. Forrest Meyen of Lunar Outpost — an emerging leader in the new Cislunar economy pushing the bounds of robotics in extreme environments, and enabling a sustainable presence on the Moon and Mars. We’ll discuss some exciting, recent announcements from Lunar Outpost, what a sustainable lunar presence looks like, and the challenges and rewards of being a space entrepreneur.
One of the guests on the show, Justin Cyrus, is the CEO of Lunar Outpost. Justin attended UC Boulder where he received his undergraduate degree in electrical and electronics engineering, and has a master’s degree in space resources and electrical engineering from the Colorado School of Mines.
I’m also joined by, Dr. Forrest Meyen, Chief Strategy Officer of Lunar Outpost. Previously, Forrest was the founder of Destiny Space Systems which was acquired by Lunar Outpost earlier this year. Forrest is also a member of NASA’s science team for the Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment, better known as MOXIE. Forrest received his undergraduate degree in mechanical and biological engineering from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and his PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Aeronautics and Astronautics.
