Separating the Message From The Messenger

Mars aboveground (movie review), The Space Review

"One of Zubrin's public speaking weaknesses is his inability to hide his contempt for anybody who disagrees with him. Most of his verbal ticks don't come through in the documentary, but his contempt for NASA and those who question his philosophy and technical ideas do rise to the surface at times. A polite way to say it is that he does not suffer fools gladly, except that Zubrin obviously considers the population of fools to be very large. Like many very intelligent people who are passionate about their ideas, he exhibits little patience for those who do not simply take his word that something is possible and want to check his math and maybe his chemistry as well."
