Juno has some issues with its LEROS engine, and the Starliner-Delta system needs some modifications to fly straight.
Hugh Blair-Smith helped develop the Apollo Guidance Computer, the software it ran, and the program that assembled that software. Also, Stratolaunch finds a launch buddy, New Shepard leaves its launch buddy and Matthew tries to expose some launch buddies.
We talk to Andrea Boyd of ESA and Kathleen Coderre of NASA's Orion project. Also SpaceX reveals ITS, Kate Rubins peaks inside BEAM and Firefly might be done for.
We learn a bit about the delayed Soyuz launch, as well as the proximal cause of the Amos-6 explosion.
JMARS is a geological information system that started on the Red Planet and has since moved to encompass other bodies. It's used internationally by mission planners, scientists and others. Also, MCT announcement is coming up and New Glenn was revealed!
The Dawn spacecraft has set all kinds of records, and is a marvelously well designed vehicle. We got to have a nice long chat with Dr. Marc Rayman, the chief engineer. Also, we have a short AMOS-6 followup.
STEREO-B may well be recoverable, China's 2020 Mars rover, and lots of good corrections from a NASA ADCO.
Yutu might one day be useful again, a Raptor engine is ready for testing, and Cygnus' RTF gets delayed.
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!
Juno gets to Jupiter and Curiosity goes into safe mode.
Orion gets hit with another delay, SpaceX gets hit with an exorbitant fee, and ESA gets hit with... well, you know.
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.
Orbital ATK readies another launch vehicle, Dextre is big, and Dan Leone really knows how to use a quaint old tool called "reporting."
Ben stumps everyone for a second week in This Week in Spaceflight History. More info on SpaceX' most recent ASDS landing, More info on ASTRO-H, and Antares returns to the ring.
