Episode 427: Winking at the Moon

On this special episode of Talking Space, we remember the life of Neil Armstrong, who passed away August 25th at the age of 82. We remember his accomplishments, his close-encounters, his views on our space program past and present, and we hear about how he helped Sawyer get a job. We then discuss Curiosity and how the rover has taken its first drive on the surface of Mars and how that went. Lastly, we discuss more about the case of the Saturn V blueprints with 2 listener letters. Thanks again to Rich and Evan for sending us your follow-up letters.
