Episode 330: A New Dawn is Upon Us

On this episode of Talking Space, we discuss the STS-135 mission, and give an update on its status from spacewalks to unloading and reloading cargo. We also talked about special bits of memorabilia special to this mission including flags, flowers, and even M&Ms. We then go into a lengthy discussion regarding the spacecraft Dawn which successfully entered orbit around the asteroid Vesta.

Finally, we move on to an interview with Elmo conducted by Gina and Sawyer on launch day.
