Weekly insights into spaceflight engineering news, interviews and discussions. Listen in for technical details, corrections from people in the know and "one step deeper" knowledge.
You know Copenhagen Suborbitals, right? We talk to Mads Wilson about the Nexø successful failure. Also, a Crew Dragon parachute drop test, a successful EVA and the important difference between delta V and propellant mass fraction.
Alessondra Springmann is a graduate student that helped prepare for Osiris-Rex' upcoming mission, and she just got a chance to see it in person! Also, Lego NASA heroes, a Commercial Crew update, Copenhagen Suborbitals, Dream Chaser and some static burns!
Copenhagen Suborbital stays solidly suborbital, Astro-H might get a replacement, and SSL works on a GSO servicing bot.
We prepare for another Falcon 9 RTLS landing by talking to Dave Huntsman, a flight controller for Skylab and commercial space proponent. This is not an interview you want to miss!
The Saffire experiment publishes video quickly, Blue Origin lets us peek in on their most recent experiment and boy does Ben get fired up about SpaceX conspiracy theories.
