Episode 440: Apocalypse Now?

On this episode of Talking Space, we discuss the crashing conclusion of the GRAIL lunar gravity mapping mission and who they named the crash site after. Next we discuss a possible trip to Europa, but can we even think to afford it? Then we discuss a host of blogs worth checking out. On our second trip around the table, we dicuss North Korea's launch of a reported satellite. Then we discuss the 40th anniversary of Apollo 17 and an interesting article by Andrew Chaikin on the date. Then we discuss an e-book for kids. On our final trip around the table, we discuss the NASA Johnson Style parody and what it really means. Next we discuss the end of the world and why NASA is certain it won't happen. Finally, we discuss an interesting follow up to a spacesuit story and an update on a story from last week.
