On this episode, we look at NASA's plans to land humans on the Red Planet from the Apollo era through today, and SpaceX's parallel initiatives with the Starship mega-rocket. Which program will be the first to be Mars-capable? Also, a comet the size of Rhode Island heading our way, a cry for help to ET, and a meteor shower is happening. Hosts: Rod P…
 
NASA feasibility studies determined that a research space laboratory could be placed in orbit by 1967. However, to fund such a project it had to be justified by achieving a national goal, or an important science goal, or test of … Continue reading → The post Space Rocket History #387 – Skylab – Pre-history – Dyna-Soar & MOL first appeared on Space …
 
When will humans reach Mars? We've talked about it since the 1940s; now it's time to get going. NASA, SpaceX, and China are all eyeing the Red Planet. Who will get there first? This is part one of our "Humans on Mars" discussion and a look at early efforts to reach the red planet with American boots. Also, more delays for the Space Launch System, s…
