Embedded below the fold. Not only did we talk about Juno and other recent science news, we also discussed the absurd banning of Doug Messier from the NasaSpaceFlight.com website.

    Is John as cool a dude as he seems to be?

    Willi: Batchelor is a great conversationalist, always well-prepared & genuinely interested in the topic at hand. (there is a short video on youtube, where he explains how he chooses his theme music, and challenges the listener to figure out where it came from. )

    Good show, and especially enjoyed the nasa space flight dot com people getting called out on a national radio show.

    I absolutely disagree with Doug Messier on the “climate change thing,” but I certainly do not want the man shut down, in any way, shape, or form.
    >Spent some time at his website over the weekend & saw him (on TV) at the Juno-Jupiter insertion press-conference asking questions. I’m relatively poorly equipped to judge his Space-reporting, but it appears straightforward.
