Below the fold is the podcast for my appearance tonight on the John Batchelor Show. Among a number of topics, we discussed the new contract awards by NASA to various commercial companies, the lack of any missions for SLS, and the approach towards space exploration by several Presidential candidates.

    Bob, I always enjoy and learn from your segments on JB. This is a good one.

    Interpreting space news to deliver it intelligibly and “in a nutshell” is certainly your forte, Bob, whether here on BTB, or via radio. Thanks so much for providing links to the podcasts!
