Episode 215: Theory of the Evolution of Shuttles

On this episode, we discuss everything to do with the shuttle somehow. We start off with the recent STS-131 mission, along with the final three missions and the rotation of the final two flights and their order. We then go on to discuss the launch of the US government's own mini-shuttle, which was originally designed in cooperation with NASA and nothing to do with the military. We also discuss the 20th anniversary of the release of Hubble and its journey, as well as an SDO update.
