Nic and Echo recorded this episode on the 17th of September, but did not get it out until September 30th, which makes some of these points valid only in the past (oops).
Echo also hadn’t heard the news that NASA would scrub the SLS again before launch (oops again)
Echo learned the OBAFGKM mnemonic from page 41 of a book: A History of the Universe in 21 Stars (and 3 imposters) by Giles Sparrow, which is a highly recommended read (a few typos never hurt anyone)
