Episode 514: Lots of Commercial and a Lunar Infomercial

On this episode of Talking Space, we return from a technology issue the previous week with a delay of the next Orbital launch and look into why. We then discuss some interesting comments made by NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden, who announces his frustration with NASA's budget and where we're going next. We then discuss a video with a look at commercial spaceflight, if it can be called that. On our second trip around the table, we discuss the success of the X-51A, aka the Waverider. We then talk about some telescopes thrown into NASA's lap and what they should do with them. We finish off the round talking about the forgotten Ares 1-X, and what we got out of that flight. On our last trip, wetalk about some fun videos to watch. We then talk about a man selling the moon, but can he legally do it? We finish off with a well-deserved award.
