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.
We learn more about the Rocket Lab's first flight failure, a minimalistic cubsat failure , and an H-IIA that was grounded (due to a failure)
Jason Seagram works at CSA, and was a major part of the recent MBSU RnR.
There are two MPLMs in storage right now... and one of them might be headed to the moon! Also, another short-sighted US space telescope.

TDRS-M got a little banged up during encapsulation, and Moon Express shows off a mockup! Also, lots of questions, comments and correction burns; let's all get smarter!
Kam Bahrami sits at the ROBO desk at ISS MCC. We have a quick discussion with him about robotics on Station and the Roll-out Solar Array experiment in particular.
