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.
I’m supposed to put an episode description here, but I’m just going to say “Modular Active Self-Assembling Space Telescope Swarms” and leave it at that.

Elon Musk reveals a potential second stage reuse strategy, and Orbital ATK gives a new name to NGLS
Tess Caswell has done a lot of things, but today we're talking to her about her time sitting at the ETHOS desk in ISS MCC, controlling the life support systems on Station.
We discuss Falcon 9 fairings falling out of the skies, the return of SpaceShipTwo to the skies, and a new launch company hoping to make it to the skies.
Back before Tiangong I came crashing down, we passed the waiting time talking about other large uncontrolled objects that have re-entered, NOAA's camerashyness, and Blue Origin's new/old engine selection.
Dawn prepares to spiral down the drain (but with science!), and Astra prepares to peek their heads into daylight.
We're introducing a brand new segment, where we try and guess who a mystery guest is! Also, Fregat failure news, CRS-7 failure analysis and so much more.
