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.
Laura Forczyk studies the space industry professionally, and we get to talk to her about what services she provides as well as some of her predictions!
Zach and Kelly Weinersmith just published a book called Soonish, a humorous-but-factual look at 10 upcoming technologies. Since a few are in space, we thought we'd talk to Zach about the book!
VRSS-2 was recently launched on a Long March. While it's a fairly conventional Earth observation satellite, we got ahold of its system designer to talk about what makes it different and what the challenges were in building it.
Dr. Bennett is the Spitzer Science Center Deputy Manager, and we got to talk to him about the space telescope's history and operations.
We discuss the recent loss of IRNSS 1H, trapped in its fairing, and we learn about a newly discovered flaw in Intelsat-33e's stationkeeping thrusters. Also we get a little more clarification of the Dragonrider suit.
