Episode 429: Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue

On this episode of Talking Space, we discuss the recent return of both the Soyuz TMA-04M carrying a crew of 3 and the "return" of JAXA's HTV-3. We then discuss a race against the ISS, and it's not as impossible as it seems. We then discuss a delay with the next Soyuz, the TMA-06M and the reliability of the vehicle. On our second trip around the table, we discuss the delay of the departure of Endeavour and a brief look at each of the exhibits. We then discuss a very patriotic set of waypoints in the Washington DC area. We then discuss some budgetary woes to end the second trip around the table and to begin the third. We then move on to the winners experiments in the YouTube Space Lab contest being flown and performed onboard the ISS. Finally, we look at the memorial ceremony for Neil Armstrong held at the National Cathedral.
