Episode 216: A Good Abort?

On this episode, we discuss the STS-132 mission set to launch on May 14th. As well, we get into the tweetup which is accompanying it, as our very own Gina Herlihy and Gene Mikulka will be there participating. Stay tuned as they will be giving updates on the field and we will post them. We then discuss the successful test of the Pad Abort system for Ares/Orion, and then finally remember the late Guenter Wendt, aka the "Pad Führer" who died Monday at age 85
