On this episode of Talking Space, we recap the CCiCap press event which took a look at the major players in manned commercial spaceflight and their current goals and objectives. We then discuss a promotion from Axe/Lynx which will allow 22 people the chance to fly on a suborbital flight. On our second trip around the table, we discuss Bigelow Aerospace's future inflatable room for the ISS. We then talk about some amazing videos released by NASA, including spacecraft burning up on reentry. On our final trip around the table, we discuss possible plans to replace the Soyuz and the effect on the lifespan of the ISS. We then talk about the White House's response to the petition to create a Death Star and how $850,000,000,000,000,000 has to do with it. Lastly, we hilight some Talking Space episodes you might've missed that are certainly worth a listen.
