On this episode of Talking Space, we discuss the successful launch of Juno on its way to Jupiter and Mark's experiences at the Kennedy Space Center for the launch on the spacecraft's five year journey to Jupiter. We then move on to Boeing's two announcements regarding its CST-100 spacecraft including its choice of rocket and who it will be choosing as its crew. We then discuss a discovery on Mars which could possibly be flowing water on the surface of the red planet. We then move on to the return of the PBS series "Cosmos" and its new host and its new major network, Fox. We end with a reminder to check out the Perseid meteor shower and then read one of the most amazing poems written by a former space shuttle worker titled "Empty Sky".
