On this news-packed episode of Talking Space, we discuss the space shuttle Endeavour officially being handed over to the California Science Center, and also discuss the controversey of trying to bring a shuttle to Houston as well as Ohio. This segment includes a classic clip from a STS-134 briefing with a question asked by our own Gene Mikulka. We then discuss former Space Shuttle Launch Integration Manager Mike Moses, who will be leaving NASA to join Virgin Galactic. We also discuss the second drop test of Space Ship 2, which did not go as smooth as expected. We then get into a deep discussion of the next proposed NASA budget and some intersting areas which are being affected by the budget and others that aren’t. We then talk about a possible 2013 abort test of the Orion capsule as well as a 2012 drop test of Sierra Nevada’s Dreamchaser. We then continue with another satellite coming in for a reentry similar to UARS, except this time it’s ROSAT. We finish off our discussions with the Soyuz getting NASA’s ok to keep flying as well as a launch this week, for the first time, of a Soyuz from somewhere other than the Baikonour Cosmodrome. We finish off with an interview conducted by Mark with another amazing speaker from the 100 Year Star Ship Symposium, Chantelle Louis.
