    Billionaire and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is getting closer with every launch to providing internet to the world-- including remote communities-- by using a fleet of thousands of satellites.
    BUT he’s not alone, Amazon, Samsung and other private companies plan to follow his lead.
    And that means low-Earth orbit is about to get even more crowded.
    In the latest episode of Space Curious, we’ll look at what massive constellations of satellites will mean for our view of the night sky, the research of astronomers who study it and what companies like SpaceX are doing to help mitigate these issues.

    Mismatch Presents: The Eyes of Texas

    Mismatch Presents: The Eyes of Texas

    We've wrapped up our second season of Mismatch, but we've got a fun story to share with you from our friends at The Eyes of Texas podcast.
    “It’s totally exaggerated. It’s not me,” declared President George H.W. Bush during a segment for Saturday Night Live. “Those crazy hand gestures, the pointing thing. I don’t do 'em.”
    President Bush called Dana Carvey’s impersonation of him “bad” in that memorable SNL sketch. We’d reveal more here, but well, it wouldn’t be prudent. You’ll have to listen.

    Jose Feliciano’s Anthem Encore

    Jose Feliciano’s Anthem Encore

    It was 1968. The assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy had already shaken Americans to the core. 300 American soldiers were being killed each week in Vietnam, and protesters were beaten near the Democratic National Convention. In that wrenching year, the nation needed a timeout. The 1968 World Series would provide that break. More than 53,000 fans jammed Tiger Stadium, hoping their team could rally after trailing the Cardinals three games to one. Before the first pitch of game five, they removed their hats and rose from their seats to hear the most memorable and controversial performance of the national anthem in the history of American sports.
