Launch Hangout | Crew1 SpaceX & NASA | Best-of Moments from Live Stream
This week we have the best-of moments from the SpaceX & NASA Crew1 launch hangout. We had a lot of fun hanging out with everyone who joined us live! Thanks for all the great questions!
Congratulations to Shannon, Mike, Victor & Soichi for their successful launch and docking to the ISS. It was very inspirational and provided hope for a good future in the time of the unknown.
You can watch the NASA TV broadcast in full for all the exclusive interviews and in depth science communication to learn all about the mission.
For more infomation on the scientific work our Crew1 Astronauts will do on their 6 month journey, check out this link here!
We'll be answering some of the questions we didn't have answers for from this live stream on the next episode. As always - Feel free to send in any questions you might have to us over at email@example.com! We'd love to hear from you!
Can Space Travel Save us from a Dystopian Future? Or fuel it? | Thoughts from an Engineer | TIS#222
We're slowly getting back to a regular schedule after I was out with COVID. Thanks for your patience!
I share what's been on my mind lately, and what kept me preoccupied when I was recovering from COVID. There's been alot of dystopia floating around in my head - and no wonder, its pretty dystopian right now in the real world. Our lives are intertwined with the digital world, there's a pandemic ongoing, and of course - a US election. What else could 2020 bring us?
My basic premise this week - is space travel the ultimate hail mary for humanity to progress to a fantastic future? Can continued lunar presence bring about a stable space economy? Can the long shot of SpaceX creating an independent Mars city with its own laws bring about a good future for humanity? Is resistance futile?
Lots of question - too few answers. But I would love to hear what you think!

Testing Positive | My two-week COVID-19 Experience | Thoughts from an Engineer TIS #221
We're back! After two weeks with COVID-19, and taking alot of rest and basically putting life on hold - the podcast has returned. A huge thank you to the Today In Space fam for reaching out, sending good vibes, and offering to help. It was a crazy time, and you definitely helped us get through this. THANK YOU!
I wanted to take this episode to share my experience with COVID. I did test positive and I had intense symptoms for 14 days. This is meant to be an episode for anyone who is interested in what the symptoms are like, a breakdown of my anecdotal experience, and a reminder as we enter fall and winter, which is historically an easier time to catch flus & diseases.
We're not quite out of the woods yet with this pandemic, and I had a lot of questions after posting online that I tested positive. So here we are - an engineers observations of having COVID-19, after 8 months and 32 episodes of lockdown. Be well folks - have good habits!
Bringing Ideas into Reality with 3D Printing | Creators of the Snap Collar Jack Collins & Mike Sullivan | TIS#220
This week we have the creators of the Snap Collar on to discuss their product before it launches on Kickstarter on October 13th, 2020. We had the pleasure of working with them early in the development stages of their design and used 3D printing and iterative design to fast-track their idea from paper to product.
Iterative design is a core tenant in the New Space world, we see this concept in real life with SpaceX's Starship and the Falcon 9. Our 3D printing lab AG3D uses that concept to help people bring their ideas into reality. We're very excited for the launch of Snap Collar and wish both Jack & Mike the best in the next stage of their idea adding value to people like you

Hope for the future of Space Colonies with Starship, 3D printing rovers, and Martian Lava tubes | TIS#219
This week has been tough for me - so I hope you're hanging in there. Stress overload. I usually end up thinking 'big picture' and looking to the future when that happens.
So for this episode, I pull together some research on how we might make space colonies possible. For me, I'm putting alot of stake into SpaceX's Starship being the vehicle for progressive change to human life on the Moon and Mars.
We also talk about some of the latest orbital news to follow up from last episode, since almost all launches we discussed have been delayed since then. We also have an official date for Crew-1 and a follow up on what they learned from Demo-2. I also nerd out about the importance of the Space Toilet.
Wishing you well! Spread love and spread science!
