Karman Line Cafe is produced by Orbital Velocity. Visit orbital-velocity.com for ...

Listen to lectures from workshops and events put on by the Keck Institute for Space Studies (KISS).

It is a joint institute of the California Institute of Technology and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
 
The original casual, conversational podcast about eclipses of all kinds and space in general. Along with occasional guests, we hope to spread our enthusiasm and excitement for eclipses and other celestial events (while enjoying tasty beer, of course). This excitement originally stems back to our 2017 total solar eclipse experience and now we are hooked! So, crack open a cold one and join us in making totality a reality!
