Just wondering. What is the latest research on how long humans could survive in space? Could we survive a trip to Mars? The outer planets? And, how did Captain Kirk stand on the bridge of the Enterprise?

Meanwhile the overhauled Russian spacecraft Soyuz TMA-01M has docked with the International Space Station, which is a 10-year $100 billion project of 16 nations. TMA-01M is the first Russian spacecraft that is "all-digital", which will allow a doubling of the launch rate of Soyuz spaceships. Happy 10th anniversary on Nov. 20th to the ISS!

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
