On this episode of Talking Space, we discuss preparations being made for the departure of Endeavour for the California Science Center, the final shuttle to fly aboard the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft. We also talk about some concerns the residents of Los Angeles are expressing regarding preparations. We then discuss the recently announced reasons for the allocation of funds for NASA’s CCiCap program and the concerns the agency has with some of the proposed designs. On our second trip around the table, we discuss a MacGyver-esque repair aboard the ISS that involves using a toothbrush on a spacewalk. We then move on to some impressive research being done by NASA employees. We then discuss India’s recent launch and the impact this is having on the launch market as well as the morale of the US. Finally, we use our last trip around the table to answer some listener letters ranging from Neil Armstrong to what defines a legend.
As well, Talking Space celebrates its 3 year anniversary with the release of our first episode on September 9, 2009.
