On this episode of the Talking Space Podcast, the crew discusses the recent rumors surrounding what is to come of NASA’s budget. Just a reminder, this was recorded on Sunday, Jan 31 and the budget was just released the day after we recorded on February 1. We go over the pros and cons to canceling Constellation as well as turning human spaceflight over to private entities and many other subjects related to the budget. We then go on to remember the crews of Apollo 1, STS-51L (Challenger) and STS-107 (Columbia) and talk about how their sacrifices have bettered human spaceflight as a whole.
