Alex has been doing some research into the history of the Space Race, reading up on some recommended books (listed below) and sharing his thoughts on the influence of the rocket on human history. With the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing coming up on July 20th, we'll be focusing on the comparisons between the Apollo Program and the newly announced Artemis Program to put the first woman and next man on the Moon by 2024. Alex breaks down the general difference between the two programs and their link to Greek Mythology.
Rocket Lab also has a launch next week of the Electron rocket for the mission #MakeItRain. Spread Love, Spread Science.
In this episode(part two), we had an interview with Brian Stofiel of Stofiel Aerospace - an aerospace company looking to revolutionize how business can enter the space industry with their 3D printed rocket technology.
In this episode, Alex was joined by Jerry Goodson for some Space Shuttle Talk.
Jerry Goodson worked on the Space Shuttle Program for over 35 years and worked all the way from being a technician in the aft section of the spacecraft to Launch Test Conductor.This episode is a great starting point for anyone who wants to learn about the Space Shuttle.
