Episode 505: They're Sending Up Who?

On this episode of Talking Space, we discuss the continued controversy around Iran's reported launch of a monkey into space. We also discuss the announcement about who they announced would be their first human candidate. On our second trip around the table, we do some quickie stories covering a Red Bull Stratos update, a look at the Axe/Lynx Apollo commercials, and a woman who wants to be the first adult film star in space. We then discuss some news involving the Dream Chaser and Lockheed Martin. Then we discuss the next NASA Social. On our final trip around the table, we talk about some videos from astronaut Chris Hadfield about life in space. We then discuss how the ISS crews are now "good to grow." Lastly, we discuss the batteries that were in the trouble-ridden Boeing 787 Dreamliner and how they relate to the ISS.
